Mina Yaghoubi, a bodybuilding coach, was sentenced to 11 years in prison, 85 lashes, and other punishments. Even though for most of the world it is 2023, in Iran it appears to be the stone Age.

On February 15, 2023, bodybuilding coach Mina Yaqhoubi posted a video clip in which she said that she had been sentenced to 8 years in prison and a two-year prohibition from residing in the city of her residence, according to a ruling issued by the Revolutionary Court. She was also condemned to three years in prison by the criminal court, after receiving 85 lashes and 124 hours of grave washing.

Mina Yaghoubi, a bodybuilding coach, stated in this video clip that her three-month silence was due to her lawyer objecting to the court verdict and hoping to reduce the punishment.

Mina Yaghoubi, 33, was reportedly arrested on November 1 during protests in Arak for throwing stones at a cemetery. She is a bodybuilding coach with a 12-year-old daughter. She was abducted outside the bodybuilding club where she works. During her detention, she was interrogated for 12 hours.

Mina Yaghoubi was freed on bond on December 1, 2022, at 3 a.m. Heavy marks around her eye indicated that she had been brutally mistreated while detained. Heavy punches to her head and forehead are alleged to have caused the bruise around her eye.
