At least 100 people sentenced to death in Iran


At least 100 people have been sentenced to death or charged with capital crimes in connection with the protests in Iran, according to a report by a Norway-based human rights group.

Five women were among those at risk of execution, the report states.

The real number of protesters facing the death penalty was believed to be much higher, and because the victims’ families are being pressured not to respond.

Two men were executed this month in what activists described as sham trials.

Mohsen Shekari and Majidreza Rahnavard, who were both 23 years old, were found guilty by the Revolutionary Courts of the vaguely defined charge of “enmity against God”.

We recall that Iran was involved in massive protests after the death in custody of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old woman who allegedly died due to police violence.

Mahsa Amini was arrested by morality police in Tehran on September 13 for wearing her hijab or headscarf “improperly”.
