      Description

      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 2022-23 protests began following the death of Mahsa (Jina) Amini on September 13, 2022, in the detention of the morality police of the Islamic Republic. These protests quickly spread across the country and are remembered as the largest revolutionary uprising against the government since the establishment of the Islamic Republic.

      The Iranian government responded to these protests with deadly violence. According to human rights organizations, the security forces of the Islamic Republic have killed at least 551 people, with a minimum of 68 of them being children.
