Three more sentenced to death in Iran over protests
Three more sentenced to death in Iran over protests

The Iranian government have sentenced three more protesters to death.

The protesters have been accused of killing three members of the security forces during the unrest which was triggered by the death of Mahsa Amini, the judiciary said Monday, Jan. 9.

The Islamic nation has been plagued by civil unrest since the death of Kurdish Iranian Amini, 22, on September 16, following her arrest for allegedly violating Iran’s strict dress code for women.

The newest sentences bring the tally to 17 number of people condemned to death in connection with the more than three months of protests.

Four of those convicted have been executed and two others are on death row after their sentences were upheld by the country’s supreme court.

Saleh Mirhashemi, Majid Kazemi and Saeed Yaghoubi were sentenced to death on charges of “moharebeh” — or waging “war against God” — the judiciary’s Mizan Online news website reported.

Two others were handed prison terms for the incident that led to the deaths of three security force members in the central province of Isfahan on November 16, Mizan said.

All the sentences can be appealed before the supreme court, it added.

On Saturday, Iran executed Mohammad Mehdi Karami and Seyed Mohammad Hosseini for killing a paramilitary force member in November in Karaj west of Tehran.

Two other men, Mohsen Shekari and Majidreza Rahnavard, were put to death in December after being convicted of separate attacks on security forces.

The executions have sparked global outrage.
