Report: Iranian actress faces jail, lashing
Kalameh.com website says Marzieh Vafamehr was sentenced for appearing in a movie critical of the Islamic republic's hard-line policies.
An Iranian opposition website says an Iranian actress has been sentenced to a year in prison and 90 lashes for appearing in a movie critical of the Islamic republic's hard-line policies.
The Kalameh.com site said Monday that Marzieh Vafamehr's attorney has appealed the sentence. Lashing sentences are not uncommon in Iran, but many are not carried out.
There was no official statement.
Vafamehr appeared in the film "My Tehran for Sale," shot in the Iranian capital. It tells the story of a young actress whose stage work is banned by authorities.
The movie was produced by an Australian-based company and directed by an Iranian-Australian Granaz Moussavi.
It premiered at the Adelaide Film Festival in 2009, but is banned in Iran.
