Keyvan Mehregan, the Iranian poet, journalist and filmmaker, was released from Evin Prison on Wednesday May 11.
Mehregan’s wife, Afsaneh Parchekani, reports that the prosecutor and the judge agreed to a conditional release for her husband, who had been on a furlough.
Mehregan was arrested last September to serve out a one-year sentence in connection with his journalistic activities with the Shargh daily.
In 2011, he was sentenced to one year in jail and a five-year ban from journalism for the charge of “propaganda against the regime”.
Since the 2009 election protests, which led to wave after wave of a widespread crackdown on journalists, Mehregan has been arrested and released on bail on several occasions.
