@world - BuzzFeed World | Nasrin Sotoudeh, one of Iran's most prominent human rights lawyers, says she has been sentenced to a total of 38 years in prison and 148 lashes, drawing international condemnation. Soutoudeh was arrested in her home in June last year without an explanation from the government. She was defending women who had been arrested after removing their hijabs in public protests at the time. Soutoudeh is being held at a prison in Tehran and told her husband about the latest sentence over a phone conversation on Monday, according to the Center for Human Rights in Iran. Her husband said she had been charged with taking part in an illegal assembly, propaganda against the state, disturbing public peace and order, appearing in court without a head scarf, and encouraging corruption and prostitution. Soutoudeh received the European Union's most prestigious human rights award, the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, in 2012 when she was serving a previous prison sentence. (📷: Getty)
