Tehran, Iran, Jun. 22 – A court in Iran’s holy city of Qom has sentenced a journalist to 91 days in prison for having insulted both the President and the head of the State Expediency Council, a state-run news agency reported.

Farid Modarressi was found guilty of “writing insulting material” against incumbent President Mohammad Khatami and SEC chief Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.

Modarressi is set to be tried separately on Friday for writing “illegal material” in a weblog.

Earlier this month, another weblogger in Qom was sentenced to two years in prison for “insulting the supreme leader” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Mojtaba Saminejad also faced several other charges which he is currently on trial for.
