#MohsenShekari, a 23-year-old #IranRevolution freedom fighter, was executed by the Islamic Republic of Iran on December 8, 2022. Mohsen is known as the first victim of execution during the #MahsaAmini uprising in Iran. He was arrested and detained on September 25 for blocking Sattar Khan Street in Tehran and allegedly injuring a pro-regime Basij Resistance Force member with a machete.
Mahmoud Shekari, Mohsen’s uncle, stated to journalists that Mohsen, after seeing security guards attacking protestors, took down a guardrail and positioned it in the street to isolate them from the security guards. One individual from the Basij militia was injured during the occurrence.
Judge Abolqasem Salavati of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Court convicted Shekari on November 1 for being a “Rioter” and acting “Muharebeh,” which means “Waging war against God.” Salavati is known as Death Judge among Iranians. Two years ago, The United States Treasury Department sanctioned Judge Salavati for his propensity to issue death sentences for Iranian political protesters.
Mohsen Shekari’s arrest, trial, and execution took only seventy-five days and Mohsen was not even presented by his lawyer at court!
Amnesty International said Shekari’s execution “[exposed] the inhumanity of Iran’s so-called justice system as dozens of others face the same fate.”
Mohsen won’t be forgotten and will stay in the Iranian hearts forever!

To Whom It May Concern,
Since September 16th, after the murder of a 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, by the so-called morality police, Iranians have been protesting for freedom, human rights, minority rights, and women’s right to self-expression.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has responded with a lethal reaction, killing hundreds of its citizens nationwide with military artillery and arresting thousands.
The ruthless suppression of Iranian demonstrators has reached entirely new heights.
Two detained protesters, Mohsen Shekari and Majid Reza Rahnavard, were put to death on December 8th and 12th, respectively, without going through a fair trial, having access to independent counsel, or having the option to ask for an appeal.
The IR regime is about to execute hundreds of people.
Members of the German parliament, such as Ye-One Rhie, Carlos Kasper, and Martin Diedenhofen, were the first to decide to be political sponsors of several arrested protestors who were given death sentences. Politicians’ backing is vital. When elected officials publicly defend a political prisoner, more attention is attracted to their fate. The media cover their activism, and the attention serves to safeguard innocent prisoners.
We need your help, and we urge you to act quickly to stop this massacre. Your actions can include, but are not limited to, the following:
– Announce your political sponsorship or advocate for the prisoners in imminent danger , .
– Publicly call on all nations to recall their ambassadors from Tehran and to remove all the regime’s diplomats.
– Declare all regime associates, including the IRGC, and the Supreme Leader Khamenei, as terrorist organizations and impose swift sanctions against them.
– Demand that UN specialists keep a close eye on the situation and urge the authorities to take extraordinary measures to halt executions.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this important, sensitive message and offer your support to save lives and the values Iranians are fighting for.
