The disciplinary committee of Kharazmi University in Tehran has approved a temporary ban on education for one semester for Zana Sojoudi, an undergraduate student of physical education studies, Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN) has learned.

On 11 November 2022, the committee issued the decision, accusing the student of “participating in the [recent anti-government] protests” in Iran.

After Sojoudi appealed against the decision, the disciplinary committee upheld its initial judgement on 22 January after reviewing it.
