On November 25, Branch 119 of Isfahan Criminal Court cleared Mohammad Vaziri of the accusation of “publishing falsehoods with the intention of disturbing public order.” 

Earlier, Vaziri was sentenced to two months in prison by the First Branch of the Isfahan Revolutionary Court on charges of “collaboration with hostile countries and propaganda activities against the system.”

The sentence was suspended for one year.

Vaziri was arrested in Isfahan on August 17 and transferred to the city’s Dastgerd Prison. He was released on bail on September 11.

His wife, Shirin Alizadeh, was shot by a member of the paramilitary Basij force in the city of Tonekabon last year while driving in a car with their seven-year-old son. 

She was reportedly filming clashes between protesters and security forces.

After the killing, the security forces also arrested her sister, Nasrin Alizadeh.
