Tehran court awards death sentence to a rioter, protestor

Setting fire to a government building, disturbing public order, assembly and conspiracy to destroy nation's property, is an offence with 10 yr prison !

Tehran: A Tehran court on Sunday issued a death sentence linked to “riots,” the judiciary’s Mizan Online website said.
Iran has been rocked by nationwide protests since the death of Jina Mahsa Amini in police custody. The 22-year-old woman was arrested by Iran’s notorious morality police for allegedly improperly dressing in line with the country’s strict dress code.
According to Mizan Online, Sunday’s sentence was handed for the crime of “setting fire to a government building, disturbing public order, assembly and conspiracy to commit a crime against national security, and an enemy of God and corruption on earth.”
The website added that another Tehran court sentenced five people to prison terms, ranging between five to 10 years, for “gathering and conspiring to commit crimes against national security and disturbing public order.”
More than 2,000 people had already been charged – nearly half of them in the capital Tehran – since the demonstrations began in mid-September, according to judiciary figures. (UNI)
