Tehran (IP) - The Spokesman of Iran's Judiciary says a request for an appealing court session was issued over the case of Hamid Nouri, yet it is waiting to be accepted by the Swedish Supreme Court.

Iran PressIran news: Hamid Nouri, 61, an Iranian citizen, was arrested by Sweden's security forces on November 9, 2019, upon his arrival to Sweden to follow up on family issues.

He was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Swedish court while he had not been provided to read the Persian text of the verdict.

Masoud Setayeshi told reporters on Wednesday in a press conference that all facilities, including telephone conversations, have been completely cut off to Nouri, Setayeshi added.

He told reporters: "Out of the newspapers of Sweden, we found out that about a month ago, Hamid Nouri's leg was broken in solitary confinement and he underwent surgery."

Hamid Nouri's primary and appealing court sessions have been held and his case investigations have been finished. 

Last July, a Swedish court sentenced Nouri to life imprisonment. The court, which was described by Iran as illegitimate in the first place, convicted Nouri of "war crimes and crimes against humanity" entirely based on claims made by MKO terrorists living in exile across Europe.
