+ - Canadian-Iranian Blogger Sentenced to 19.5 Years->

Submitted by alexo
alexo (9335) writes "CNN reports that an Iranian court has sentenced Hossein Derakhshan, the so-called "blogfather" of Iran, to 19.5 years in prison.

Derakhshan, a 35-year-old Canadian-Iranian blogger and activist, was "convicted of cooperating with enemy states, making propaganda against the Islamic system of government, promoting small anti-revolutionary groups, managing obscene web sites and insulting Islamic sanctities".

Slashdot mentioned Derakhshan in an article about Iranian bloggers back in 2006."
