Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thegatewaypundit.com: “Iran Roundup for December 5th: Khomeinist Regime Jailers Flog 80-year-old Woman, Mother of Deceased Political Prisoner”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Marandi’s son was Behrouz Zinal-Nejad, a political prisoner who died last year in Khoi Prison,   five days after he went on hunger strike. The regime declared his death a suicide, but his mother and sister disagreed, said that he had been murdered, and argued vehemently with a regime judge and Khoi prison staff-members. As a result, both Salbi Marandi and her daughter Atefeh were sentenced to eight months of imprisonment and 70 lashes, each.

Flogging is considered a form of torture under international law.
