On Monday, December 24th, 2018, Siavash Rezaian was tried in the Amol revolutionary court under the chairmanship of Mahdavi judge on charges of “propaganda against the regime” because of the publication of tweets in support of political activists, girls of Revolution Street, and Darvishes prison, as well as in support of popular protests.
Rezaian has been summoned in the past to the Feta Police, the Public Prosecutor’s Office, and the Revolutionary Court of Amol on numerous occasions because of his activity on social networks and the publication of critical content on Twitter.
