Iran executes a second person in connection with anti-government demonstrations

According to the judiciary’s Mizan news agency, the Islamic Republic executed a man in broad daylight on Monday who had been found guilty of killing two security personnel. This was the second execution associated with anti-government protests in less than a week.

‘Majid Reza Rahnavard was hanged in public in (the revered Shi’ite city of) Mashahd this morning.’ He was given the death penalty for ‘waging war against God’ after fatally stabbing two security personnel, according to Mizan.

The United States and its allies strongly denounced Iran’s hanging of Mohsen Shekari on Thursday after he was found guilty of stabbing a security guard and blocking a street in Tehran.

According to rights organizations, Shekari was tortured and made to confess.

In what it dubbed “sham trials designed to scare those engaged in the public revolt that has rocked Iran,” Amnesty International claimed that Iranian authorities are seeking the death penalty for at least 21 individuals.

One of the biggest threats to the Islamic Republic since it was founded in 1979 can be seen in the nationwide demonstrations that broke out following the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian Kurdish woman, on September 16.
