Iranian cartoonist Farghadani Atena, 28, was sentenced to 12 years in prison on multiple charges because of a caricature representing members of the Iranian Parliament with heads of animals. An unusually heavy sentence for a simple caricature.

Arrested in 2014 and sentenced to solitary confinement, she was temporarily released in November 2014 and published a video in which she denounced the conditions of her detention. A video that certainly aggravated her case with the Iranian authorities.
