Incarcerated Journalist Ahmad Zeidabadi, Returns to Prison After A One Day Extension of His 48 Hour Furlough

August 7th, 2011- [Jaras] Ahmad Zeidabadi incarcerated journalist and Secretary General of the Office of Strengthening Unity (Advar Tahkim Vahdat) returned to Rajai Shahr prison in Karaj after a one day extension of his 48 hour furlough from prison.

Mizahe Khabar had previously reported that Zeidabadi’s 48 hour furlough had been extended after he arrived at Rajai Shahr prison. However, it looks as though the one day extension was only granted because of his late arrival.  In a report published on the facebook site of one of his friends, Zeidabad reportedly bid his family and friends goodbye and returned to Rajai Sahr prison this afternoon

It is worth mentioning that Zeidabadi was sentenced by the Revolutionary Court to 6 years prison and a life time ban from all political and social activism.  He was also banned from membership in any political group, the analysis of current affairs, participation in any events and giving speeches (both oral and written).  His prison sentence was later reduced to 5 years by the appeals cout.

In 2011, Zeidabadi was granted the UNESCO/Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Award by a delegate of 12 independent, international media experts.

تمدید مرخصی یک روزه ؛ احمدزیدآبادی به زندان بازگشت

جرس:  احمد زید آبادی دبیرکل سازمان دانش آموختگان ایران (ادوار تحکیم وحدت) و روزنامه‌نگار زندانی، امروز یکشنبه به زندان بازگشت.

به گزارش منتشر شده در فیس بوک دوستان این زندانی سیاسی، وی عصر امروز با بدرقه دوستانش راهی زندان رجایی شهر کرج شد.

پیش از این میزان خبر از تمدید مرخصی احمد زیدآبادی خبر داده بود و نوشته بود که بر اساس گزارش ها تمدید مرخصی وی پس از بازگشت به زندان به وی ابلاغ شد. اما بنظر می رسد که این تمدید مرخصی بعلت دیر رسیدن وی به زندان بوده است.

احمدزیدآبادی توسط دادگاه انقلاب به شش سال زندان، پنج سال تبعید و محرومیت مادام العمر از هرگونه فعالیت سیاسی و شرکت در احزاب و هواداری و مصاحبه و سخنرانی و تحلیل حوادث، به صورت کتبی یا شفاهی محکوم کرد، که دادگاه تجدید نظر حکم دادگاه بدوی را مورد تایید قرار داد
