Death row political prisoner denied legal representation

 

Abdolreza Ghanbari, the secretary and member of the Science Board of a university who was arrested during post-election events in 2009 was
sentenced to death on the charge of receiving a phone call from
abroad- which was later said to have been from an opposition party.
His death sentence has been upheld and referred to the Sentence
Implementation Department.
According to reports, Abdolreza Qanbari was denied the right to a
lawyer of his choosing during the time he had filed for an appeal and
is currently denied a lawyer.
Despite his family’s efforts to get him a lawyer of their choosing,
the Tehran Revolutionary Court has opposed this issue. (Human Rights
