Defended women without a headscarf: Now she is sentenced to 148 lashes

38 years in prison and 148 lashes.

It is according to the family what the prominent iranian human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh has been sentenced in the iranian capital Tehran.

Nasrin Sotoudeh has dedicated his life to fight for human rights and against the death penalty.

Several times she has defended women who have been protesting against the law that women must wear the scarf.

The writes among others the BBC.

Several human rights organisations, among other things, Amnesty International, has now been out and criticise the 'shocking' sentencing, that Nasrin Sotoudeh has been given for a wide range of security-related charges, though she has denied the guilty.

- It is completely appalling that the Iranian authorities punish her for her work for human rights, says Philip Luther from Amnesty International, according to the BBC.

It is Sotoudeh's husband, who has confirmed her new sentence of 33 years in prison - which brings her total judgment up to a total of 38 years in prison and 148 lashes.

According to her lawyer, she is among other things, been convicted of spreading information about the iranian state, to spy and to offend the iranian president.

Up to her arrest in June represented by Nasrin Sotoudeh several women, who had been arrested in order to show himself in public without a headscarf or hijab, which is a criminal offence in Iran.

From 2010 to 2013 was Nasrin Sotoudeh, a political prisoner - convicted and jailed for spreading propaganda, and to plan to attack the security of the state.
