HRANA News Agency – Prisoners who have been charged with Muharebeh according to the old Penal Code, would find the chance of a retrial, after the changes and may receive reduction in their sentences or be released. Currently there are at least 48 male prisoners in Iranian prisons on charges of Muharebeh, who have in different ways been sentenced to more than twenty years imprisonment (with the exception of life imprisonment sentences).

According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), 48 male prisoners in Iranian prisons on charges of Muharebeh, who have in different ways been sentenced to more than twenty years imprisonment (with the exception of life imprisonment sentences). Due to the changes in the Islamic Penal Code in 2013, these prisoners may request for a retrial. Some might receive reduction in their sentences and some others who have served many years in prison may get released.

According to the new Islamic Penal Code, the definitions of MUharebeh (waging war against the God), Fesad-Fel-Arz (Corruption on earth) and Baghy (sacrilege and belligerence), issued in 2013, in articles 279 to 288 were changed. According to part B of article 10 of the Islamic Penal Code issued in 2013, the judge is mandated to issue or execute the sentence according to the latest update of the law. Besides, defendants can request for a reduction of their sentences according to the new law.
