Iran’s judiciary verifies death sentence for 2022 protest-related officer murder.

TEHRAN, Iran, Nov 14, (Agencies): Iran’s Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence for a man convicted of killing a Revolutionary Guards officer during nationwide protests in October 2022. Officer Ali Nazari lost his life amid widespread demonstrations that erupted after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody the previous month.

The judiciary’s Mizan Online website reported that a Tehran court had issued the death sentence in June, citing conformity with Iran’s retribution law. The Supreme Court recently affirmed the sentence, although the condemned man remains unnamed. Amini, an Iranian Kurd, faced arrest for an alleged violation of the country’s strict dress code for women, leading to widespread unrest.

Last year’s protests resulted in numerous casualties, including both civilians and security personnel, with thousands arrested in connection with what authorities deemed foreign-instigated “riots.” Seven men have already been executed for offenses related to violence against security forces during the protests.
