“In the midst of widespread demonstrations following the [police murder] of Mahsa Amini, local media stated that Iran’s judiciary had accused more than 750 individuals in three provinces for taking part in ‘recent riots.’ Since the protests started in mid-September, more than 2,000 people have already been accused, with about half of them in Tehran, according to judicial data. The disturbances, which the authorities have referred to as ‘riots,’ have resulted in the deaths of dozens of individuals, most of whom were protesters but also included security officers. … Authorities have refuted accusations made by international rights organisations that 15,000 people had been jailed as a result of the protests.” (11/13/22)
