Iran: A young man sentenced to death in Tehran

NCRI – Clerical regime’s judiciary sentenced a young Iranian man to death in Tehran according to the state-run news agency, Fars.

The man was only identified by his first name, Mehdi. The agency gave no detail about his trial.

Faced with international and domestic isolation, the clerical regime had to intensify repression in Iran and as a result the number of executions have been on the rise in recent months. International human rights bodies have expressed their concern over the high number of executions in Iran.
