Arrest and Detention

There is no specific information on the defendant’s arrest and detention. According to what was heard from this source, the defendant was identified and arrested by the police after he had a secret life and formed a family for 15 years.  


No information is available on the defendant’s trial.      


The charge against the defendant was announced as "murder." According to the above source, “the defendant had killed his neighbor 15 years ago.”     The validity of the criminal charges brought against this defendant cannot be ascertained in the absence of the basic guarantees of a fair trial.  International human rights organizations have drawn attention to reports indicating that Islamic Republic authorities have brought trumped-up charges against their political opponents and executed them for alleged drug trafficking, sexual, and other criminal offences. Each year Iranian authorities sentence to death hundreds of alleged common criminals, following judicial processes that fail to meet international standards. The exact number of people convicted based on trumped-up charges is unknown.
