Khosro and Massoud Kordpour, two Iranian journalists, have been transferred to the central Mahabad Prison four months after their arrest.

The Mokerian News Agency reports that last Wednesday, the two brothers were finally transferred to Mahabad Prison from the detention centre of the Intelligence Ministry.

Khosro Kordpour has said that he and his brother have been charged in the absence of their lawyers. The journalists reportedly have been accused of “propaganda against the regime by reporting on the situation of political prisoners.”

Khosro and Massoud Kordpour were arrested in March in Mahabad without any official statements as to the charges against them.
