TEHRAN: A Tehran court has sentenced daughter of former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani to six months in jail over anti-regime propaganda, Mehr news agency reported.

Faezeh Hashemi has also been banned for five years for political, cultural and media activities on the charges of propagandistic acts against the Islamic republic, Xinhua quoted the report as stating.

The former president's daughter can appeal the sentence within 20 days.

She participated in the protests against the disputed results of the presidential elections in June 2009 and was briefly detained for her involvement in the demonstrations.
