Iran.. a new death sentence against a protester and the death toll from the protests

While Iran’s protests continue for the third month, the regime has failed to “suppress” them, despite its exhaustion of all means to intimidate the protesters, at times with threats and at other times with execution.

Those rulings, which were the regime’s last way to suppress the protests, turned against it with widespread Western condemnation of the final ruling it issued last Thursday, executing demonstrator Mohsen Shakari, after he was accused of several charges.

However, the Iranian authorities did not pay attention to this wave of Western condemnations, and issued a new ruling only three days after the first ruling, according to human rights organizations.

Late on Saturday evening, the human rights organization “Hrana”, which is affiliated with the Group of Human Rights Activists in Iran, revealed that a death sentence had been issued against one of the protest detainees in the city of Mashhad, northeastern Iran, called Majid Reza Rahnward.

The organization quoted a human rights source as saying, “Majid Reza Rahnward was sentenced to death by the Revolutionary Court of this city headed by Judge Hadi Mansouri, on charges of moharebeh.”

protests

Despite the security atmosphere, some cities in Iran, including Tehran, witnessed popular protests against the regime and a rejection of the execution of demonstrator Mohsen Shakari, while the demonstrators in Tehran and Mashhad chanted, “Mohsen Shakari did not deserve to be executed.”

On Thursday, the Iranian authorities carried out the death sentence against Mohsen Shakari last Thursday, which was met with a wide wave of international reactions and protests.

However, that ruling was not only met with a wave of condemnations abroad, but the legal aspects of its issuance were met with skepticism even within the framework of Iranian laws. fight.

This seminary student and faculty member at the University of Tehran concluded that, in the opinion of the majority of the court’s judges, Mohsen Shekari “does not deserve execution.”

Statistics on prisoners

After the execution of Mohsen Shakari, concerns about the issuance and execution of death sentences against some detainees during the current protests in Iran have increased.

The reformist-affiliated Etemad newspaper published the names of the prisoners accused of “corruption on earth” and “moharebeh”, and wrote that these charges might lead to the execution of these prisoners.

According to the newspaper, there are 25 prisoners on this list, including Mohsen Shakari, who was executed last Thursday morning.

44 children died

Amnesty International announced, in a report, that it had documented the names and characteristics of 44 children who died during the ongoing protests in Iran, including 39 between the ages of 2 and 17 and 5 girls, three of whom were 16 years old, one 17 years old, and one 6 years old.

The human rights organization says that 34 of these children were killed by war bullets that hit their hearts, heads, or other vital organs,” noting that “at least four children died from gun blasts at close range.”

Five children, including four girls and a boy, died of their injuries, and a girl, as a result of the tear gas.

25 Christians were arrested

In a related context, Iranian Christians, like other social groups, were present in the fields of protests, which resulted in the arrest of a number of them, according to civil activist Marie Mohammadi, who said in an interview with the German Broadcasting Corporation in the Persian version today, Sunday, that “so far, people have been arrested.” At least 25 Christians were arrested for participating in the protests.

The Iranian authorities refuse to disclose the exact figures for the death toll in those protests, but human rights organizations said that the number of detainees exceeded 18,000, while the death toll reached nearly 481 since the start of the protests in mid-September.

Two weeks ago, the Iranian authorities admitted that 200 people had been killed, while the commander of the Air Force in the Revolutionary Guard, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, estimated that there were more than 300 people, including security personnel.
