Iranian political prisoner Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani, currently held at Evin Prison in Tehran, is to be executed on Monday September 10, his family has been informed by the judiciary.
The Melli Mazhabi website was informed about the imminent execution by a member of the political prisoner’s family, while the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran has also been informed by a rights activist in Iran that Khosravi’s death sentence is to be executed in the coming days.
The unidentified human rights activist has told the Campaign that there are two specific legal violations in the processing of the case.
He stresses that legal provisions prohibit the transfer of the case from Rafsanjan to Tehran after sentencing. Furthermore, he reports that the two defence attorneys in the case have been arrested, the charges against Gholamreza Khosravi have been changed to “moharabeh” (enmity against God), and his six-year sentence for “spying” has been changed to the death sentence.
Human rights sources report that Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani was arrested in Rafsanjan on spying charges in 2007 and a year later he was sentenced to six years in jail for “funding assistance to a television network run by the People’s Mojahedin Organization.”
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran is an exiled dissident group that the Islamic Republic considers as one of its archenemies.
Khosravi’s case was reviewed in Tehran after the 2009 crackdown on election protesters in Iran, and he was sentenced to death. Some reports indicate that his record of a five-year prison term in the 1980s for political activities was used against him in the issuance of the death sentence.
