The Islamic Revolutionary Court trial against the two brothers Khosrow and Masoud Kurdpoor ended today, 28 of October 2013. The brothers are Kurdish journalists and were arrested in March and May of 2013, respectively, in Mahabad.
The Kurdpoor brothers are charged with “Moharebeh” (Enmity against the God), “insulting the Supreme Leader of Iran”, “threatening the territorial integrity of Iran”, “being members of Kurdish opposition parties” and “spreading lies”. The Kurdpoor brothers wrote mostly for the Mukriyan News Agency and openly spoke about human rights violations in Iranian Kurdistan.
The judge declared that because the state has deemed the trial as a “matter of national security,” no bail was going to be set for the brothers. The Islamic Revolutionary Court in Mahabad is expected to issue the final verdict of the trial in two weeks
