Sentences Upheld for Saudi Missions’ Attackers

An appeals court has approved the jail sentences for 10 people charged with attacking the Saudi diplomatic missions in Iran in January 2016.
Mostafa Shabani, the lawyer of defendants, said on Sunday the prison sentences for the 10 attackers, ranging from three to six months each, were approved by the appeals court, IRNA reported.
They were sentenced for disturbing public order and causing destruction to diplomatic properties. The lawyer said four other suspects are clerics whose cases have been examined by the Special Clerical Court. The trial began in July 2016, after protestors angered by the Saudi execution of pro-democracy Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr attacked Saudi Embassy in Tehran and a consulate in the northeastern city of Mashhad. The Saudi government used the attacks as a pretext to rupture ties with Tehran, despite the fact that Iran condemned the attacks and prosecuted the perpetrators.
