Accused of killing a security man

Qabadlo is being tried for “corruption on earth” for “attacking policemen with a car, which led to the death of an officer and the injury of five others” during the protests that erupted since last September, according to local media.

These developments came after the Iranian judiciary announced, earlier today, Saturday, that the Supreme Court had accepted the appeal of two protesters who were sentenced to death, due to errors in the investigations related to their cases.

“The Supreme Court accepted the appeals of Mohamed Qbadlou and Saman Sidi Yassine, who are accused of participating in the recent protests,” Mizan news agency affiliated with the judiciary reported.

She also added, “Due to a lack of investigation, the Supreme Court referred them to the same courts for reconsideration of their cases.”

Iran had faced a wave of Western and human rights condemnations over the authorities’ execution of two protesters this month, namely Mohsen Shakari (23 years old) after he was accused of blocking a main road in September, and wounding a member of the Basij paramilitary forces with a knife, and Majid Reza Rahnward (23 years old), who was accused of blocking a main road in September. Accused of stabbing two Basij forces to death, he was publicly hanged.

Popular protests erupted after the death of the young woman, Mahsa Amini (22 years), who is from the Kurdish region in Iran, on September 16 in Tehran, after she was detained by the “morality police” for wearing “indecent clothes.”

On the other hand, the security forces faced this with violence and repression, which led to the death and injury of hundreds, and a campaign of arrests that affected thousands, as a result of which death sentences were issued, which sparked international outrage.

For its part, Amnesty International said that the Iranian authorities are seeking to apply the death penalty to at least 21 people in what it described as “sham trials aimed at intimidating the participants in the popular uprising that shook Iran.”
