Gholami is accused of "spreading lies" in the writings on her blog. She had gone on a hunger strike in prison to protest against the conditions of her detention.
Gholami was sentenced to six months in prison, but her lawyer, Naghi Mahmud, appealed the sentence. Mahmud told Radio Farda that a date for her appeal hearing has not been set.
Gholami is an active defender of the rights of the Azeri minority and women in Iran.
