Tehran jails singer, who won Grammy, for protest anthem


Dubai, March 2

An Iranian singer who won a Grammy presented by US first lady Jill Biden has been sentenced to more than three years in prison over his anthem supporting the 2022 protests over the death of Mahsa Amini.

Shervin Hajipour posted on Instagram on Friday, the same day that Iran held its parliamentary election, what appeared to be part of the judgment against him. It said Hajipour received jail term on charges of “propaganda against the system” and “encouraging people to protest”. — Agencies
