Mohammad Mehdi Karami, 21, is also another protester who has been allegedly sentenced to death and whose life is "in danger.".
Tehran carried out its first execution over protests that were sparked by the death of an Iranian activist Mahsa Amini, 22, in the custody of the morality police on Sept. 16. Mohsen Shekari was executed on Thursday on accusations "of waging war against God," Iran's Supreme Court revealed.
This 23-year-old #MahanSadrat sentenced to death is not a criminal. Khamenei, Raisi and Khatami are criminals. Help us save his life. He can be executed at any time. pic.twitter.com/mpnCyFHqfA— Masih Alinejad ?️ (@AlinejadMasih) December 10, 2022
Following Iran's first execution, Canada announced new sanctions on 22 individuals, including senior aides to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Masha Amini was arrested on Sept. 13 by the country's morality police in Tehan for wearing an 'improper hijab'. Since her death, a wide range of protests erupted across Iran as protesters chanted slogans against the regime and called for more women's rights in the country as well as an end to the compulsory hijab and the dress code.
