Behnam Mossivand, a civil and political activist, went to Evin prison to serve three years on June 13, 2016. He, along with another activist Navid Kamran, was sentenced to 18 years in prison for vague charges of "propaganda, assembly and collusion against the regime of Iran" in the initial court. Behnam was previously sentenced to two years in prison at Branch 28 of the Islamic Revolutionary Court chaired by Judge Mohammad Mogheyseh. The appeals court lessened both sentences against Behnam which made the total penalty three years in prison.

Behnam, 29, was summoned to serve his imprisonment by Shahid Moghadas Court's warrant.

Finally, Behnam went to Evin prison to serve his prison term on June 13, 2016.

The other activists Navid Kamran got a court summon letter (Subpoena) to serve 12 months imprisonment.

Previously, Arash Sadeghi was arrested by Verdict Execution officers on June 7, 2016 and sent to the notorious Evin prison. Arash,30 went to Shahid Moghadasi court of Evin to get information on his sentencing status when he was arrested and sent to prison to serve a 19-year-term imprisonment, said his relative. He is being held at Ward 8 of the Evin prison amongst criminals imprisoned for serious offences such as pirates, thieves, embezzlement, fraud and forgery.
