Five years in Prison for a website in Iran....

He ran the website of an opposition leader....
An appeals court upheld a five-year jail term for Mohammad Davari, who heads Iranian opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi's website Sahamnews.org, the site reported on Saturday.

Samahnews.org said the sentence was upheld against Davari who was arrested in September 2009 for "propaganda against the regime and gatherings aimed at damaging national security and public order."

The website did not say when the verdict was delivered.

He was arrested after Karroubi charged that several detained male and female demonstrators had been raped, tortured and killed in Kahrizak detention centre during post-election unrest last year, it said.
