There has been an alarming rise in the use of the death penalty against protesters and members of minority groups in Iran. Right now, three protesters face execution after grossly unfair trials.
Amirhossein Moradi, Mohammad Rajabi and Saeed Tamjidi were sentenced to death in connection with protests that took place in November 2019. Iranian authorities have accused them of being “riot leaders”.
