Behrouz Javid-Tehrani (Persian: بهروز جاوید تهرانی; born December 26, 1978) is an Iranian student who was first arrested following the Iran student protests of July 1999. As of 2009, he had spent most of the past ten years in jail, and was in poor health due to torture.
He was first given an eight-year sentence in 1999, which was later commuted to four years. In 2005, he was arrested again and given a four-year prison sentence for "acts against state security", a three-year sentence for belonging to the People's Mujahedin of Iran, and a flogging of forty lashes for "insulting the leadership and the state".
