Iran Supreme Court accepts appeals The appeals of two protestors who were condemned to death owing to faults in the investigation of their cases were accepted by Iran’s Supreme Court on Saturday, according to a statement released by the country’s court.
According to a report published by the judiciary’s Mizan news agency, “the appeals of Mohammad Qobadloo and Saman Saidi Yasin, who are accused of the recent disturbances, were approved by the Supreme Court.”
“Because of flaws in the study, the Supreme Court has sent them back to the lower courts for further look.”
Unrest broke out across the country in the middle of September after the death in detention of a Kurdish Iranian lady named Mahsa Amini, who was 22 years old. Mahsa Amini was detained by morality police who were implementing the required dress code rules of the Islamic Republic.
Mohsen Shekari, 23, was accused of blocking a prominent road in September and injuring a member of the paramilitary Basij force with a knife. He was one of the two protestors that Iran hung earlier this month. Majid Reza Rahnavard, 23 years old, was publicly executed by hanging from a construction crane after being accused of stabbing to death two members of the Basij.
