<<Iran intensifies protest crackdown as UN decries executions.
Paris (AFP) - Iran's judiciary said Tuesday it will <firmly punish> women who violate strict dress rules, as the United Nations warned Tehran is trying to crush protests by weaponising the death penalty.
Demonstrations have swept Iran since the September 16 death of Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini, 22, after her arrest in Tehran for allegedly failing to adhere to the dress rules which demand wo-men wear hijab headscarves. After nearly four months of protests, in which Iran has hanged four people for their role in the unrest, the UN Human Rights Office in Geneva said Iran's executions without due process amount to <state-sanctioned killing>. Since the outbreak of the protests, the morality police units charged with enforcing the hijab rules have been less visible and many women have taken to the streets with their heads uncovered. But as the demonstrations continue, the prosecutor general on Tuesday issued a directive in which <police were ordered to firmly punish any hijab violations>, Mehr news agency reported. <Courts must sentence the violators, as well as fine them, to additional penalties such as exile, bans on practising certain professions and closing workplaces,> Mehr quoted the judiciary as saying.
Death sentences rise
Iran's judiciary said Tuesday it had sentenced another man to death in connection with the protests, with Javad Rouhi found guilty of charges of <corruption on Earth>. >>

<<Detained protesters face unfair prison sentences in 5-min trials.
The clerical regime's Judiciary continues to issue unjust sentences to detained protesters arrested during the nationwide Iran uprising. Two years for Mahtab Ansarian, Mahshid Zahedpasand, and Mina Afshari. Mahtab Ansarian, Mahshid Zahedpasand, and Mina Afshari are among the young women detained during the recent Iran up-rising. Each of the three detained protesters was sentenced to two years in prison in a 5-minute trial that was held online.
Mahtab Ansarian, a 19-year-old student in the first semester of graphics at Tehran's Soura University, and Mahshid Zahedpasand, 19, were arrested on November 15, 2022, in phase one of Andisheh, in Shahriar, a city in Tehran Province that is a hotbed of protests. The three young women are currently incarcerated in Qarchak prison.
Mina Afshari, 23, was also arrested on November 15, 2022, in Fardis of Karaj and taken to Qarchak Prison. The security services forced her family to remain silent and prevented the news of Mina Afshari's arrest from being published in the media by promising to release their child. >>

<<Charlie Hebdo doubles down on Iran leader cartoons.
Paris (AFP) - French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo doubled down on its ridicule of Iran's religious rulers on Tuesday, with fresh car-toons of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei despite protests from Iran and its allies. <The mullahs aren't happy. The caricatures of their supreme leader... do not seem to have made them laugh,> the paper's editor, known as <Riss>, writes in the latest edition, which hits newsstands on Wednesday. <Laughing at themselves has never been a strong point of tyrants,> he added. The paper was hit by a cyber attack after publishing cartoons of Khamenei in last week's special edition, which marked the anniversary of the 2015 attack on its Paris offices that left 12 dead. <A digital attack doesn't leave anyone dead, but it sets the tone. The mullah's regime feels in such danger that it considers it vital to its existence to hack the website of a French newspaper,> Riss wrote. <It is an honour in one sense, but above all proves that they feel their power is very fragile.> >>

<<More than 19,000 people have been arrested since protests erupted in Iran in mid-September 2022. Human rights organisations say that dozens of them have been killed in secret detention cen-tres. But security forces are trying to cover up these deaths by threatening family members into silence or staging the deaths as suicides. Beaten during protests, arrested, tortured and then denied medical treatment: This is how dozens of Iranians have lost their lives during the Islamic Republic's current wave of unrest, which some are calling the <Mahsa Revolution>.>>

<<Iran hands out three more death sentences over Amini protests.
News Wires - Iran has sentenced to death three people accused of killing three members of the security forces during the protests trig-gered by the death of Mahsa Amini, the judiciary said Monday.
Iran has handed down three more death sentences for offences related to the civil unrest triggered by Mahsa Amini's death, the judiciary said Monday, fuelling international protests against the regime. The latest sentences - for three men who were convicted of the killings of three security forces members - bring to 17 the official total of detainees condemned to death in connection with the nearly four months of protests. Four executions have been carried out while six of those convicted have been granted retrials. Oslo-based group Iran Human Rights (IHR) said Monday at least 109 protesters now in detention have been sentenced to death or face charges that can carry capital punishment.>>

<<Nazila Maroofian fainted, suffered an infarct before standing trial. Photojournalist Yalda Moayeri with 23 years of experience sentenced to six years and sweeping parks Nazila Maroofian, 23 and a journalist, suffered an infarct before standing trial on January 4, 2023.
This young journalist has been under much mental pressure and psychological torture in prison and interrogation. Since her arrest, she has been confined in solitary confinement or cells with a small number of prisoners. On the day of the trial, she fainted and had an infraction. Nazila Maroofian was transferred to Mofatteh Hospital in Shahr-e Rey, but she was returned to Qarchak Prison without com-pleting the tests. Nazila Maroofian, a student at Tehran's Allameh Tabatabai University and a reporter for Rouydad 24, was arrested on October 30, 2022, by order of the Revolutionary Prosecutor's Office based in Evin Prison in Tehran. She was arrested for publishing her interviews with the father of Mahsa Amini on the Event 24 website in October and November 2022. She was confined in Ward 209 of Evin.
Before the arrest, Nazila Maroofian, the Rouydad 24 reporter, wrote in a Twitter post, <They won't let me publish my interview a few days ago with Mahsa Amini's father. First, they called my father in the city ... then they called me that there was a warrant for my arrest. If you publish it, you will be sent to Evin on such and such charges!> Nazila Maroofian also worked as a reporter in Dideban-e Iran. During the interrogation in the detention center, she underwent severe pressure and threats from the interrogators to make forced confessions. And due to these pressures, she suffered two mild heart strokes.>>

<<Iran executes two more men detained in connection with nationwide protests.
News Wires - Iran drew international condemnation on Saturday as it executed two men for killing a paramilitary force member in Novem-ber during unprecedented protests sparked by Mahsa Amini's death in custody. The latest hangings double the number of executions to four over the nationwide unrest, which has escalated since mid- September into calls for an end to Iran's clerical regime. They also come in defiance of a campaign by international rights groups for the lives of the two men to be spared. Judicial news agency Mizan Online reported that <Mohammad Mehdi Karami and Seyed Mohammad Hosseini, the main perpetrators of the crime that led to the martyrdom of Ruhollah Ajamian, were hanged this morning.> Prose-cutors said the 27-year-old militiaman was stripped naked and killed by a group of mourners who had been paying tribute to a slain protester, Hadis Najafi. The UN human rights office decried the executions, which it said followed <unfair trials based on forced confessions>. <We urge Iran to halt all executions,> it said on Twitter.
The European Union said it was <appalled> by the executions.
<This is yet another sign of the Iranian authorities' violent repression of civilian demonstrations,> the spokesperson for the bloc's foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell said in a statement, urging an im-mediate end to death sentences against protesters.>>
