Who were the executioners of Majidreza Rahnavard in Mashhad?
After the conclusion of his trial, Rahnavard was convicted of moharebeh in connection with the two murders. Moharebeh is often punished with the death penalty. Following Rahnavard’s execution, Omid Memarian, a blogger and a senior analyst at Democracy for the Arab World Now, said, “No due process. Sham trials. That’s how they want to stop the nationwide protests.” Iranian activists on social media called Rahnavard’s execution “a criminal act” intended to intimidate protesters, with one account alleging that called Rahnavard’s family at 7 a.m. (local time) and told them to go to the Beheste Reza cemetery. ‘We executed your child and buried him,’ they said.”
