“A court in Tehran has issued the first death sentence to a person involved in Iran’s ongoing protests and handed out prison terms to several others. The Iranian judiciary said late on Sunday that an unnamed individual has been sentenced to execution for ‘setting fire to a government centre, disturbing public order and collusion for committing crimes against national security’ in addition to ‘moharebeh’ (waging war against God) and ‘corruption on Earth.’ Five more unnamed people, who authorities described as ‘rioters’ — a word the government uses to describe the ongoing protests and those participating in them — were handed between five and 10 years in prison on national security-related charges.” (11/14/22)
