Danger of Imminent Execution: Gholamreza Khosravi’s Reconsideration of Case Failed
HRANA News Agency – reconsideration of Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani, political prisoner who is sentenced to death, was failed and he is in danger of imminent execution.
According to a report by Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), 31st branch of Supreme Court in Tehran announced reconsideration of Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani, political prisoner who is sentenced to death, was failed and he is in danger of imminent execution.
Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani was arrested in 2008 in Rafsanjan, Kerman Province, in connection with his alleged support of the pro-PMOI TV station Sima-ye Azadi (Voice of Freedom).
In 2008 he was sentenced to six years’ imprisonment, three years of which were suspended. Following an appeal by the Ministry of Intelligence, the three-year suspended sentence was implemented, bringing his total sentence to 6 years actual imprisonment. Following further legal proceedings, including two retrials, he was sentenced to death after conviction of a fresh charge of “enmity against God” (moharebeh) for his alleged ties to the PMOI, which the Supreme Court confirmed on 21 April 2012.
