      Description
      As the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor of Izeh, Yarmohammad Resalatikhah is responsible for issuing the death sentence for Mojahed Koorkoor (Abbas Koorkoori) following proceedings which failed human rights and fair trial standards.   On 16 November 2022, during the protests in Izeh, security forces killed several people including 9-year-old Kian Pirfalak. Mojahed Koorkoor (Abbas Koorkoori) was arrested in a joint operation by the IRGC, intelligence, and police forces on 20 December 2022.   Based on the confessions extracted from him while subjected to enforced disappearance, Mojahed Koorkoor was accused of shooting and killing protesters. He is sentenced to death on charges of Moharebeh (waging war against God) and Fesad-fel-Arz (corruption on earth).  

      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.
