A female law student have been sentenced to a year in prison in Iran. Her crime was that she had been a spectator at a volleyball match between Iran and Italy.

The president of Iran's Olympic Committee, Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, has warned against mixing politics and sport, and he also says that cultural differences should be respected in this case.

The 25-year-old law student Ghoncheh Ghavami, with both British and Iranian citizenship, was sent to jail on June 20 after she had seen the match between Italy and Iran. It is strictly forbidden for women in Iran to witness such sport events.

First, the student was accused of "propaganda against the regime", but after she was detained for 120 days, she was sentenced to one year in prison for having attended the match, as her lawyer interprets it.

Currently, neither the court nor the authorities in Iran made any official statement after the verdict.

Wilfried Lemke, a special envoy for sports and peace development within the UN system, demanded an explanation from the Iranian authorities about what has been happening in this case, and what is the reason for the relatively long prison sentence. This is not how the world society wants women to be treated in the world of sports, he says.

Sheikh Ahmad said that the 25-year-old use the case to advance her political views, and he says it's important to see this matter from all points of view, even the government's.
