The head of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court has
reportedly warned that arrested protesters could potentially face death penalty
cases when they come to trial.
Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency quoted Mousa Ghazanfarabadi on Tuesday as saying: “Obviously one of their charges can be Moharebeh,” or waging war against God. That’s a death penalty offense in Iran.
Ghazanfarabadi also was quoted as saying some protesters will come to trial soon on charges of acting against national security and damaging public properties. He also stressed that attending rallies not sanctioned by Iran’s Interior Ministry, which oversees police, was illegal.
Iran’s Revolutionary Court handles cases involving alleged attempts to overthrow the government.
