TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian reformist website says a top aide to the country’s opposition leader has been convicted and sentenced to five years in prison.

Friday’s report by Kaleme website didn’t specify the charges against Qorban Behzadiannejad, who was the campaign manager for Mir Hossein Mousavi in June 2009 presidential election.

The report says Behzadiannejad was also ordered to pay a fine of 1 million rials ($100) for insulting President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Iran has sentenced more than 80 opposition figures from among over a 100 who were put on a mass trial following the disputed 2009 vote, which the opposition says Ahmadinejad won through massive vote fraud.

Ten death sentences have been handed down so far. Other sentences range from six months to 15 years in prison.
