Reformist website: Iran protester gets death sentence
An Iranian court has handed down the death penalty against a man who took part in opposition protests over a disputed election in June, a reformist website reported Thursday.
Mowjcamp.com, which gave no source for the report, said a judge informed Mohammad-Reza Ali-Zamani about the verdict on Monday. It said Ali-Zamani is a member of a pro-monarchist group, but did not give details about the charges against him, Reuters reported.
There was no immediate comment from the authorities on the case. There have been no other reports of death sentences issued against people involved in huge opposition protests that erupted after the presidential poll on June 12. Under Iranian law, such sentences can be appealed to a higher court.
