The Tehran Revolutionary Court has handed down death sentences to four Baluchis on charges of armed rebellion as crackdowns of dissidents in Iran continues.
The men are currently imprisoned in Ghezel Hesar Prison in Karaj according to rights group Hengaw.
In addition to the cases, reports from human rights sources indicate that Pakhshan Azizi, a former Kurdish journalist and political prisoner, faces similar charges by the Iranian judiciary.
Furthermore, the Iranian Free Workers Union recently reported that Shahab Naderi, a political prisoner, has also been sentenced to execution by the Tehran Revolutionary Court on similar grounds.
Earlier reports from the Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) revealed that in 2023, Iran witnessed the execution of at least 791 citizens, including 25 women and two child offenders, marking a significant increase of over 33% compared to the previous year.
Furthermore, UN experts disclosed in a separate report that Iran executed at least 834 people in the same year, with eight individuals linked to nationwide protests that commenced in 2022, triggered by the death of Mahsa Amini in morality-police custody for not wearing her hijab properly.
