The daughter of former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has been sentenced to five years in prison - this is what Faiza Rafsanjani's lawyer said today (Tuesday).

He did not specify the offenses for which she was convicted, but the public prosecution in Tehran put her on trial last year on charges of "propaganda against the establishment."

In September it was reported that she was arrested on charges of "inciting riots" in Tehran during the protests that broke out following the death of the Kurdish young woman Mehsa Amini in the custody of the Moral Police.

The regime responded harshly to the protests, one of the most significant it has faced since the Islamic revolution in 1979, and at least four protesters were executed by hanging.

Dozens more face the death penalty.

"After Faiza Hashmi's arrest, she was sentenced to five years in prison, but the sentence is not final," her defense attorney wrote on Twitter.

The former president's daughter, who died in 2017, was sentenced to prison in 2012 and banned from political activity for "propaganda against the state"

She participated in demonstrations back in 2009.

As president, her father promoted economic liberalization and better relations with the West.

The policies of Rafsanjani, one of the founders of the Islamic Republic, received wide support from the reformist circles alongside strong opposition from the conservative circles.
