Iran executes 'Jin, Jiyan, Azadi' activist

The Iranian regime executed Mohammad Qubadlu for participating in the 'Jin, Jiyan, Azadi' protests.

The Mizan Agency of the Iranian judiciary reported that Mohammad Qubadlu, a prisoner sentenced to death for his alleged participation in the 'Jin, Jiyan, Azadî' (Woman, Life, Freedom) protests in 2022, was executed at Qizilhisar Prison in Karaj.

Qubadlu's lawyer, Emir Reisyan, stated that the execution of his client was illegal because he had the right to appeal the sentence.

A while ago, 8 people were executed for participating in 'Jin, Jiyan, Azadi' protests in Iran.

According to Iran Human Rights Organisation, at least 49 people have been executed in Iran since the beginning of the year. According to data from human rights organizations in Iran, the country witnessed an alarming rise in human rights violations in 2023, when 823 people were executed.

Jina Mahsa Amini, a native of Seqiz (Saqqez), was visiting Tehran in September 2022 when she was arrested by the Iranian morality police for allegedly violating the Islamist mullahs' regime's dress code. A short time later, she died in police custody. According to her family, Amini was forcibly dragged into a police car and taken to a police station, where she collapsed as a result of further abuse and fell into a coma. On 16 September 2022, doctors at a Tehran clinic declared Amini dead.

Jina Mahsa Amini's death sparked the nationwide ‘Jin, Jiyan, Azadî’ revolution, with women at the forefront. The movement represented the greatest threat to the Islamic Republic of Iran since its existence. The young generation in particular took to the streets for months against the repressive policies of the Islamic leadership. The state apparatus violently suppressed the demonstrations. More than 550 people died and eight demonstrators were executed. In addition, more than 22,000 people were arrested.
