An Iranian court has sentenced 15 participants of the 2009 anti governmental campaign to imprisonment with terms between six months to four years, Hossein Mohseni-Ejei, Iran’s General Prosecutor said Monday.
Besides that they all will be given a whipping, he said.
The riots in Iran broke out after the opposition did not recognize the victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the presidential elections in June 2009.
Then police detained more than 4,000 protesters but almost all of them were later amnestied by Iran's spiritual leader Ali Khamenei.
