Background on the 2022 Nationwide Protests

Protesters came to the streets with the central slogan “Women, Life, Freedom” in protest against the performance, laws, and structure of the regime. During the nationwide protests, thousands of people, including journalists, artists, lawyers, teachers, students, and civil rights activists, were arrested.

 

Families of Mahsa Amini Protest Victims Face Detentions and Summons

As the anniversary of the 2022 nationwide protests, known as the Mahsa Amini Protests, draws near, families of the victims are enduring heightened pressures from security and judicial entities. Over the past week, a minimum of nine family members who lost loved ones during the protests have either been detained by security forces or summoned for questioning.

The following details the cases of these nine individuals:

  • On Wednesday, August 23, Nasrin Alizadeh, the sister of Shirin Alizadeh who was killed during the nationwide protests in Chalus, was arrested by security forces at her Isfahan residence and taken to an undisclosed location. Notably, this arrest coincides with Mohammad (Koroush) Vaziri, the husband of Shirin Alizadeh, marking his sixth day of detention at Isfahan’s Dastgerd Prison.
  • On Tuesday, August 22, Mahsa Yazdani, the mother of Mohammad Javad Zahedi, another victim of the fatal crackdown on the 2022 protests, was apprehended by security forces near her Sari residence and moved to an undisclosed location.
  • That same day, 15-year-old Faramarz Abil was taken into custody by security forces in Torbat-e Heydariyeh, Razavi Khorasan Province. His brother, Esmaeil Abil, was among those who fell victim to the 2022 Zahedan massacre, commonly referred to as Bloody Friday.
  • Mashallah Karami, the father of executed protestor Mohammad-Mehdi Karami, was arrested by security forces on Monday, August 21, at his residence. His current location and the charges against him remain undisclosed.
    On January 7, 2023, his son, Mohammad Mehdi Karami, along with Mohammad Hosseini, were executed. Both were implicated in the case related to the death of Basij militia member Ruhollah Ajamian.
  • Shermin Habibi was apprehended on August 22 by security forces and was granted bail a day later. She is the spouse of Fereydoon Mahmoodi, who was among those killed by regime forces during the 2022 nationwide protests.
    Fereydoon Mahmoodi was fatally shot on September 19, 2022, during the protests. In a subsequent development in April 2023, the Saqqez & Baneh Military Court confirmed Special Forces’ involvement in Mahmoodi’s death. However, the case was closed due to the inability to identify the specific shooter.
  • Continuing the trend of increased pressure, Hassan Daroftadeh and Mardin Daroftadeh, the father and brother of Kumar Daroftadeh, were summoned and interrogated by the Ministry of Intelligence in Piranshahr on Monday, August 21. The family was reportedly threatened to abstain from memorial ceremonies and online activities during the anniversary of the 2022 nationwide protests.
    On October 30, 2022, Kumar Daroftadeh, a 16-year-old teenager, was shot dead by security forces. His burial took place the following day in a village on the outskirts of Piranshahr.
  • Additionally, Mahsa Basir Tavana, a mother of two, was arrested by security forces in Fuman on August 17, 2023. Her brother, Mehran Basir Tavana, was among those killed by regime forces during the 2022 nationwide protests.

Earlier, HRANA had also reported on the legal confrontations faced by families of the victims, including cases involving Hossein and Mehdi Kazemi, Somayeh Kazemi, Ali Adinezadeh, Goldasteh Hosseini Jahanabad, Marzieh Adinezadeh, Reza and Musa Adinezadeh, Sajad Pirfak, and Mahmonir Molaie-Rad, spanning over a one-month period.

Update on Legal Status of Death-Row Protesters Ten Months after the 2022 Nationwide Protests

Since the inception of the 2022 nationwide protests, judicial authorities have handed down death sentences to 25 protestors thus far, with 7 executions having already taken place. While the Supreme Court of Iran has upheld the death sentence for Mohammad Ghobadlou, it has overturned ten other death sentences. The remaining seven death sentences were issued by lower courts and are currently awaiting finalization.

According to Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) reports, at least 25 protesters have been sentenced to death since the beginning of the 2022 protests.

Among them, Mohammad Ghobadlou’s death sentence was recently affirmed by the first branch of the Supreme Court of Iran. The death sentences of other protestors, Mansour Hout, Nezam’aldeen Hout, Ebrahim Naroui, Abbas (Mojahed) Kourkouri, Shoaib Mirbalouchzohi Rigi, Mansour Dehmorde, and Kambiz Khorout, were initially handed down by lower courts and are currently under review by the Supreme Court.

Additionally, the death sentences of Reza Arya, Hamid Ghare Hassanlou, Sahand Nourmohammadzadeh, Hossein Mohammadi, Mehdi Mohammadifard, Arshia Takdastan, Javad Rouhi, Saman Seydi (Yasin), Mahan Sadrat Marani (Madani), and Mohammad Boroughni have been overturned at various times. Their cases have been referred for review to another court branch. Some of these individuals have been sentenced to imprisonment or exile following the reversal of their death sentences, while the cases of others are still under review.

To date, 7 protesters have been executed.

Mohsen Shekari was the first to be executed on December 8, 2022. Four days later, Majid Reza Rahnavard was executed in public in Mashhad.

Mohammad Mehdi Karami and Mohammad Hosseini, two of the accused in the case known as “the murder of the Basiji Ruhollah Ajamian,” were executed on January 7, 2023.

In addition, Majid Kazemi, Saeed Yaghoubi, and Saleh Mirhashemi, three of the accused from the case known as “the Isfahan house,” were executed on May 19, 2023, in Dastgerd Prison, Isfahan.

According to reports obtained by HRANA, these 25 protesters have primarily been sentenced to death on charges of alleged “spreading corruption on earth” and “enmity against God (Moharebeh).” Many of them have been denied proper access to legal representation of their choice during the judicial process.

Some close relatives of these individuals have disclosed to HRANA that “forced confessions extracted under psychological and physical duress/torture by interrogators” have been presented as evidence during the trial.

Death Row Protestors Mohammad Mehdi Karami and Mohammad Hosseini Executed

On January 7, 2023, Mohammad Mehdi Karami and Mohammad Hosseini were executed. They were previously arrested at protests and sentenced to death in a legal case known as “the death of a Basij Militia force Ruhollah Ajamian.” A while ago, their sentences were confirmed by the Supreme Court of Iran.

According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, quoting Tasnim, on January 7, 2023, Mohammad Mehdi Karami and Mohammad Hosseini were executed.

Karami, age 22, a resident of Karaj, was a karateka with several top titles and championships. His lawyer recently informed HRANA that he went on a dry hunger strike last Wednesday.

Also, Mohammad Hosseini’s lawyer wrote on Twitter that his client had been tortured with iron bars and shockers.

Earlier, Mohsen Shekari and Majidreza Rahnavard were also executed over protests. According to data obtained by HRANA, at least 111 other protestors have been sentenced to death or have faced charges that can lead to a death sentence.
 

58 Citizens Sentenced to Death or under the Impending Threat of Death Sentence

Dozens of Iranian people arrested at recent protests either have been sentenced to death or have faced charges such as “armed insurrection against the regime (Baghi)”, “enmity against God (Moharebeh)”, or “spreading corruption on the earth”. Charges which may result in death penalty. At the time of this writing, 2 protestors have been executed, 11 others have been sentenced to death and 47 others are facing charges that could lead to death sentences. This report provides the legal case details of 58 of these individuals.

Several arrested individuals have been accused of “leading protests” by the Judicial officials. Allegations that have resulted in charges such as Baghi, Moharebeh, and Spreading Corruption on earth.

At the time of this writing, HRANA can verify the issuance of 11 death sentences against imprisoned protestors as enlisted in this report. The other 47 people listed below are under the impending threat of death sentence.

Due to the lack of transparency in the judicial process, in many cases opened by security institutions against the protestors, the identities of some co-defendants remain undisclosed. For example, reports obtained by HRANA about a legal case over an incident during protests in the Ekbatan town of Tehran that led to the death of a Basij Militia agent, Arman Aliverdi, indicate that there are nine co-defendants. Nonetheless, HRANA has been able to identify only two of them. Similarly, in another legal case regarding protests in two neighborhoods in Isfahan that led to the death of three security forces (Col. Esmail Cheraghi, Mohammad Hossein Karimi, and two Basij Militia individuals Mohammad-Hossein Karimi and Mohsen Hamidi), HRANA could identify only 6 out of 10 co-defendants.

It is worth noting that at the time of this writing, the executions of two protestors, Mohsen Shekari and Majid-Reza Rahnavard, were carried out following an extremely quick and non-transparent judicial process, Mohsen and Majid-Reza did not even have access to chosen lawyers at their trials. Mohsen Shekari was executed in Tehran after 74 days of detention on December 8, 2022, and Majid-Reza Rahnavard was publicly executed by being hanged in Mashhad on December 12, 2022, only 23 days after his arrest.

Five Protestors Awaiting Looming Execution in the Central Prison of Karaj

Recently, the Karaj Revolutionary Court sentenced five people arrested at protests to death. These death-row prisoners, Mohammad-Mehdi Karami, Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini, Hamid Ghara-Hasanlu and Hossein Mohammadi, are currently jailed in the Central Prison of Karaj.

About incidents that happened during protests on the 40th day of Hadith Najafi’s death, these individuals were arrested and faced the charge of “spreading corruption on earth” and then sentenced to death.

Initially, the Judiciary mentioned eleven co-defendants in this legal case. Later, however, Mizan, Judiciary’s official media, mentioned 15 people. In the third court session, Hossein Mohammadi was added to the defendants, raising the number to 16.

During the trial, none of the defendants did not access to a private lawyer. They have been also reportedly tortured to confess and accept the charges.
