<<Dozens Languish in Iran's Jails Without Legal Verdicts
In Iran, dozens of individuals who participated in nationwide protests are currently being held in prison without due judicial process, and without a verdict being handed down against them by a court of law, according to information obtained by IranWire. These individuals have been interrogated multiple times, but have not admitted to the charges against them. Family members of those arrested have spoken out, stating that many of the arrests were made without sufficient evidence and only under false pretences. Masoud Islami Nasab, 23, is just one example of those who have been unjustly detained. He has been in custody since October 15, last year, on the charge of attacking a government official with a >cold [bladed] weapon.> Despite a lack of evidence to convict him, Nasab was transferred to Evin Prison for further interrogation as ordered by judge Abulqasem Salavati. Civil activists within Iran have also spoken out about this issue, shedding light on the lack of clear evidence to convict those who are being held. <Among the detainees are Mohammad Havashemzadeh, Amir Ali Haqshenas, and Bahman Meskin Nawaz, who were transferred from Tehran prison to Evin,> an activist said. Javad Rouhi, Mohammad Reza Shabani, and Arshiya Takdastan are also being held without sufficient evidence or documentation to convict them, often with a private plaintiff. This detainment of individuals without proper evidence or a fair trial highlights a larger issue within Iran's justice system. It raises concerns about the mistreatment of citizens and the lack of transparency in legal proceedings.
IranWire has been unable to obtain any information about the time of arrest and charges against Amir Ali Haqshenas and Bahman Meskin Nawaz. However, Mohammad Reza Shabani, a 21-year-old who was arrested on September 24 of last year, along with his wife Aida Omirat, by the intelligence forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Nowshahr, is known to have been transferred to Tirkala prison in the northern city of Sari. This was due to a severe beating he received, injuring his kidney and leg area, which had previously been operated on before his arrest. Despite being held for more than five months, Shabani remains in prison, even though no verdict has been handed down against him. Javad Rouhi and Arshiya Takdastan, who were arrested during the protests in Nowshahr, have also been in limbo since their arrest. They are accused of <waging war against God> and <spreading corruption on earth> and were previously sentenced to death three and two times respectively. Arshia Takdastan's death sentence was overturned by the judiciary due to a lack of sufficient evidence, but there is no news of Javad Rouhi's final sentence. His lawyer had previously stated that all three times his client was sentenced to death without any proof of the allegations against him.

<<Iran's Top Sunni Cleric Calls for Impartial Courts and Labor Rights. Iran's top Sunni cleric has continued his critical Friday prayer sermons as he urged the Islamic Republic's Shia leadership to heed the Iranian people's wishes for change. <No government system can be preserved through the use of weapons,> Molavi Abdulhamid, the Sunni Friday prayer leader of the south-eastern city of Zahedan, said on April 28. The 76-year-old cleric advised Islamic scholars, as well as the armed forces and and law enforcement forces, to not stand against the people. <The judicial system assured us that they would deal with this issue impartially,> Abdulhamid said, referring to Zahedan's Bloody Friday on September 30 last year when more than 100 protesters were killed by security forces. <But now we hear them say that they cannot punish anyone because it is not known who shot whom at that time, and we are surprised by the judges' words,> he added. Molavi has been a key dissenting voice inside Iran since the eruption of nationwide protests in September 2022, during which Iranians have demanded fundamental economic, social and political changes. Zahedan is the capital of Sistan and Baluchistan, home to Iran's Sunni Baluch minority of up to 2 million people.>>

<<Baluch Citizen Hours Away from Possible Execution
Iran's judiciary system may execute a young Baluch citizen tomorrow morning, a human rights activist has warned. Ismail Shahbakhsh, a 25-year-old Baluch citizen, was sentenced to death on April 24 and subsequently moved from the general ward of Zahedan Central Prison to solitary confinement, in preparation for his death sentence to be carried out. He has been charged with <intentional murder,> a charge that he has denied. Alongside Shahbakhsh, in a separate case, at least one other Baluch citizen has been transferred to solitary confinement and sentenced to death. The increased threat of execution for these citizens prompted Baluch activists to launch a Twitter campaign against the death sentence and to call for the suspension of Ismail's execution. In April 2020, Ismail Shahbakhsh was arrested with seven others, two months after a mass brawl erupted in Keshavarz Square in Zahedan. He was initially charged with <participation in murder,> but during the trial process, the charge was changed to <intentional murder with a cold [bladed] weapon.> Despite Shahbakhsh's denial of the murder accusation, human rights activist Mohammad Saber Malek Raisi, founder of the Haalvsh human rights organization, said that the court ultimately concluded that he was the main perpetrator.
Shahbakhsh asserts that he was present during the altercation and was angry, but he did not have a knife or any other weapon weapon with which he could have killed someone.
According to Malek Raisi, the court disregarded Shahbakhsh's defense and sentenced him to death. Although the judge acknowledged that there was not enough evidence to support the charge of intentional murder, the death sentence was still issued, and Shahbakhsh is currently awaiting execution. Saber Malek Raisi suggests that the government is eager to close judicial cases as quickly as possible due to the costs imposed on the judiciary. <We have received multiple reports regarding this matter. In Baluchistan, there are always 30 to 40 on death row and they send them all together for execution, and they [the judiciary] demand that the executions be carried out within two months. This is the execution procedure in Baluchistan,> he said.
Why is Ismail in imminent danger of execution?>>
