Watching a sporting event is a serious crime according to these mouth breathing genetic defects . Plunder , rape , murder , having sex with your dead wife , sex with children and animals is fine . Remember , be politically correct , and always blame Israel .

Nothing shocks coming outta this hell hole---it's the same putrid vomit inducing crap day after day...There's absolutely no logic to anything originating from there.

Iranian men are so utterly impotent and insecure if they cannot handle women equally.

i wonder if her original action was intended as a protest? or if she was ignorant of what she was risking? whatever the case, there is little doubt the iranian madmen will mete out punishments disproportionate to the 'crime'.

According to Amnesty International this brave young woman has been sentenced to one year in jail for her action, but has gone through a terrible ordeal waiting for her trial, including 50 days of solitary confinement, a hunger strike and psychological torture.

Just an incredible story of a woman trapped in a web of stupidity.

What a courageous woman. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so grateful that I don't live in a culture where I can't even attend a sporting event let alone all the other freedoms I'd not have in that society.

As a British citizen, is the govt. doing anything about it? Cannot understand why west panders to these oppressive Govt's.

If she is a British citizen why doesn't the government appeal for her and bring her back to England .Why did she go back to Iran ?.Once she gets away from this mad evil land ruled by murderous fanatics she will never want t to go back.. WE can only hope her experience in jail doesn't leave her emotionally scarred
