      Description
      Moussa Gheznfaraabadi, in his capacity as the head of the Judicial and Legal Commission of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, has a role in supporting the execution of the revolutionary uprising protesters in 2022. He supported the execution of Mohsen Shekari, considering it lawful. He considered Mohsen Shekari's execution as the first move of the judiciary to bring the disruptors to justice. In November 2022, Mohsen Shakari, one of the detainees of the Tehran popular uprising, was sentenced to death in the Revolutionary Court on charges of waging war against God *Moharebeh) and was executed on December 8. His execution was carried out while the principles of fair trial and human rights standards were not observed in the process of dealing with Mohsen Shakari's case. Mahsa (Jina) Amini was killed on 16 September 2022 while being in custody of the Morality Police of the Islamic Republic. In protest of her death, a nationwide uprising broke out in Iran which is still ongoing in various forms in different cities. According to the reports of human rights organizations, the police and security forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran have killed at least 469 citizens, including 63 children and 32 women, during the revolutionary uprising of the Iranian people.
