The repressive forces of Iran regime announced Thursday the first execution of a prisoner sentenced to death for participating in the protests that are shaking the country after the death in police custody of the young woman Mahsa Amini.
Mohsen Shekari was executed early this Thursday after he was sentenced to death on November 29 for hurt a basiji -Islamic militant- with a knife, blocking a street and create terror in Tehranthe agency reported Mizanbelonging to Power of attorney.
All these crimes carried the sentence of “war against god”, which is punishable by the death penalty, as has been the case in this case.
Mizan indicated that the executed man confessed during the trial that had received “payments” for attacking law enforcement officers and for that reason he stabbed the militiaman, who needed 13 stitches after the attack.
Shekari is the first protester to be executed for their participation in the protests that shake Iran since the death of Mahsa Amini in mid-September, after being detained by the morality police for wearing the Islamic veil wrong.
The riots began due to the death of the 22-year-old Kurdish girl, but they have evolved and now the protesters are asking for the end of the Islamic Republic founded by him Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1979.
The judicial authorities have sentenced to death 11 people up to now for their participation in the mobilizations and an indeterminate number to prison sentences.
International Amnesty has claimed that at least 28 of the 2,000 defendants for the protests face death sentences.
In the almost three months of protests, more than 400 people and at least 15,000 have been arrestedaccording to the Oslo-based NGO Iran Human Rights.
Last weekend, the iranian regime hanged four people sentenced to death for collaborating with the MossadIsrael’s intelligence service, one of Iran’s main enemies.
In a trial that was not public and whose evidence was not disclosedthe Supreme Court considered that the four defendants, Hosein Ordukhanzadeh, Shahin Imani Mahmudabad, Milad Ashrafi and Manuchehr Shahbandi Bejandiwere part of “a network that under the direction of the intelligence officers of the Zionist regime (Israel), carried out armed kidnappings” and received payment for their work in “digital currencies”, the Iranian Judiciary news agency reported, Mizan.
“These people committed robberies, destruction of personal and public property, kidnappings and extortion of false confessions,” the Revolutionary Guard said in a statement on Wednesday.
Its members were arrested with the cooperation of the Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Iranian Ministry of Intelligenceexplained the aforementioned medium.
Iran occasionally announces the arrest of people it says are spying for foreign countries, including the United States and Israel. The Persian regime does not recognize Israel and supports anti-Israel terror groups throughout the region, such as Hezbollah and Hamas.
According to statistics managed by the human rights organization Amnesty International, Iran is, with more than 400 hangings a year, one of the five countries in the world that executes the most capital punishment, along with China and Saudi Arabia.
The executions take place at a time of great tension in Iran, after more than two months of protests triggered by the death in prison of Mahsa Amini. Thousands of people have been detained, including some 40 foreigners.
