Iran policeman gets 3 years for blogger’s death

“A policeman convicted over the death of a detained blogger in 2012 has been sentenced to three years in jail and another two in internal exile, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported on Thursday. Blogger Sattar Beheshti, a little-known activist, was detained Oct. 30, 2012 for alleged cybercrimes and taken to the Evin prison in Tehran the next day, where he was handed over to cyber police for interrogation. He died November 3 and had ‘signs of wounds’ on his body, according to an official report released by Iran’s judiciary in 2012.”
