The death sentence for Sahand Noor Mohammadzadeh, a bodybuilder, was canceled in court. However, due to charges such as moharebeh(combat), he was sentenced to 10 years of exile to Kohnuj in Kerman province, five years of imprisonment on charges of assembly and collusion, and one year of imprisonment on charges of disturbing public order.
According to the Campaign for the Defense of Political and Civil Prisoners, the death sentence for Sahand Noor Mohammadzadeh was canceled. Sahand was born in 1996, a bodybuilder and one of the prisoners of Iran’s Jina uprising in Tehran, who was previously sentenced to death by the Revolutionary Court.
However, the accusation of “warfare” against him still remains, and for this reason Mr. Noor Mohammadzadeh has been sentenced to “10 years of exile to Kohnuj in Kerman province, five years of imprisonment on charges of assembly and collusion, and one year of imprisonment on charges of disturbing public order.”
According to this report, this bodybuilder is one of the prisoners of Iran’s Jina Uprising (s2022-2023) in Tehran, who was sentenced to death for destroying and setting fire to public facilities. On November 16, he was tried on the charge of moharebeh in Branch 29 of Tehran Revolutionary Court.
On November 7th, 2022, the hearing was held in Branch 29 of Tehran Revolutionary Court. Hamed Ahmadi, Noor Mohammadzadeh’s public defendant, while confirming the death sentence for him on charge of moharebeh, said: “This sentence is preliminary and can be appealed in the Supreme Court.”
Examples and documents of the judicial branch about Noor Mohammadzadeh include videos in which he seems to be among the protesters who blocked the street. But his lawyer has said that “we do not consider the actions of the client to be considered moharebeh in any way. The testimony of an accused person against another accused person has no Shariah or legal authority whatsoever.
