IOPHR Requests for Urgent Action against death sentences issued against protestors

Shabtabnews – In a statement IOPHR called “on all human rights organisations inside, and outside of Iran to prevent the execution of these three men, by launching a maximum pressure campaign, and putting pressure on the Iranian authorities.”

Amir-Hossein Moradi, Saeed Tamjidi, and Mohammad Rajabi were sentenced to death in February in connection with acts of arson that took place during the protests against Iran’s government in November 2019.
