On Saturday, it was announced by Iranian government-controlled media that the Iranian authorities had detained the well-known actress Taraneh Alidoosti.
Alidoosti, who appeared in “The Salesman,” which was nominated for an Academy Award and won, wrote a number of posts on Instagram expressing support for rallies held in response to the death of a young Kurdish lady named Jina Mahsa Amini while she was in police custody.
IRNA, Iran’s state-run news agency, reported that Alidoosti was detained a week after expressing solidarity with a guy who was executed for alleged involvement in the disturbance on Instagram. IRNA stated that Alidoosti’s arrest came as a result of her post.
She stated on Instagram that every international organization that witnesses this bloodshed and does nothing is a disgrace to humanity.
”His name was Mohsen Shekari. Every international organization who is watching this bloodshed and not taking action is a disgrace to humanity,” she wrote in her Instagram post.
Alidoosti’s account has been frozen since the previous Sunday.
Alidoosti was taken into custody, as reported by IRNA, since she was unable to provide “any supporting paperwork” for the allegations that she made.
She was detained for “disseminating false information and assisting counterrevolutionary circles,” as reported by the news outlet Tasnim, which is sympathetic to the government.
The actor was given a sentence of five months in prison in the year 2020 for making comments on Twitter that were critical of the police for their assault on a woman who had removed her headscarf.
ISNA reports that Alidoosti was detained because she did not produce “any documents in line with her assertions.” This was the reason for her arrest.
According to a report by a news organization that is sympathetic to the regime called Tasnim, she was arrested for “disseminating false information and promoting counterrevolutionary circles.”
After the actor’s girlfriend attacked police on Twitter for assaulting a woman who had removed her headscarf, she received a five-month prison sentence in 2020 as a result of her actions.
