Iran accuses of “enmity with god” the first sentenced to death for Amini protests


Protests continue in Iran two months after the death of Mahsa Amini. The activists have called for new demonstrations on the streets of Iran on Monday after the Iranian Justice issued the first death sentence on Sunday for the mobilizations that are shaking the country.

A Tehran court has sentenced a defendant to death for “enmity with God and corruption on earth”, in the first conviction for participating in the riots.

Furthermore, it was also convicted of “setting down a government building, disorderly conduct and assembly, and conspiracy to commit crimes against national security”.

At the same time, another court in Tehran has sentenced five defendants to prison terms of between five and 10 years for “disturbing public order, assembly and conspiracy to commit crimes against national security”.

The judicial authorities have accused more than 2,000 people of various crimes for their participation in the mobilizations, which call for the end of the Islamic Republic, many of whom face death sentences.

In this sense, the NGO Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO), based in Oslo, warned this Monday against the risk of quick executions after the announcement of the first death penalty.

“The international community must strongly warn the Republic of Iran of the consequences of executing protesters. Calling its ambassadors and implementing more effective human rights measures against officials are some consequences to consider,” the organization said in a statement.

“We call on the youth of the neighborhoods of Tehran to take part in the streets on the anniversary of Bloody November 2019. The end of the regime is near,” said the group of activists on the networks.

In addition to the call by the Youth group from the neighborhoods of Tehran, social networks were filled with people calling to remember those protests and stickers were used on the portals of Tehran asking residents to demonstrate.
