      Seyyed Nezamoldin Mousavi, the spokesman of the Iranian Parliament’s board of directors, has been involved in the suppression of protesters during Iran’s nationwide uprising in 2022.


      In an interview with the Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA) on 29 November 2022, Mousavi announced that a meeting had been held between the judicial authorities and the legislators with the aim of accelerating the execution of the sentences handed down to arrested protesters. “There were discussions about the riots and the judiciary’s intervention,” he said, “and the lawmakers expressed their views and concerns in this regard. They were foremost concerned about distinguishing between criminals and innocent civilians and speeding up the trial of offenders and those who caused damage to public property. The judiciary officials also gave some explanations about the judicial proceedings of these cases.”


      Since the beginning of the recent nationwide protests in Iran, thousands of people have been detained and tortured. Many of the inmates have been sentenced to long prison sentences and even death by the Islamic Republic’s judiciary, through unfair, summary trials without having the right to defend themselves.


      The 2022 nationwide protests in Iran broke out following the murder of Mahsa Amini in the custody of the Islamic Republic’s Morality Police on 13 September 2022, and have continued in various forms in different cities for more than three months. According to reports by human rights organisations, at least 469 citizens, including 63 children and 32 women, have been killed by the law enforcement and security forces of the Islamic Republic.
