محکوميت سينا گلچين به ۴ سال و نيم حبس قطعي در دادگاه تجديد نظر
سينا گلچين دانشجوي رشته عمران دانشگاه آزاد تهران مرکز که ۱۷ دي ماه سال گذشته به اتهام شرکت در راهپيمايي روز عاشورا توسط نيروهاي امنيتي در منزلش بازداشت شد، در دادگاه تجديد نظر به ۴ سال و ۶ ماه حبس محکوم شد.
اين دانشجوي ۲۰ ساله که پيش از بازداشت فعاليت سياسي نداشته است پس از تحمل آزارهاي فراوان جسمي و روحي از سوي بازجويان مجبور به حضور در دادگاه هاي نمايشي تلويزيوني شد.
سينا گلچين در هنگام محاکمه فاقد وکيل مدافع بوده، و تنها پس از صدور حکم زندان، خانواده وي موفق به اخذ وکيل و پيگيري درخواست تجديد نظر اين زنداني شده اند.
علي رغم درخواست هاي مکرر خانواده وي براي اخذ مرخصي اين دانشجوي زنداني تنها يک بار به مدت ۱۰ روز به مرخصي آمد. در مدت مرخصي بازجويان وي با تماس هاي مکرر و ايجاد مزاحمت براي وي و خانواده اش از او مي خواستند به مصاحبه هاي اجباري ديگري تن دهد تا آنجا که يک بار بازجويان با هجوم و ورود به منزل شخصي اين دانشجو به تهديد حضوري وي پرداختند. خودداري سينا گلچين از مصاحبه اجباري در نهايت موجب شد که پس از ۱۰ روز وي را به زندان باز گردانند.
وي هم اکنون دربند ۳۵۰ زندان اوين در حبس است. (دانشجو نيوز – 3/3/89)
