Irani nonconformist executed for 'enmity against God'
An Iranian nonconformist has been reportedly executed by hanging for 'enmity against God' despite protests by human rights groups.
According to Fox News, Gholamreza Khosravi Savajan had been sentenced to death in 2010 after it was alleged that he donated money to the People's Mujahideen Organization of Iran (PMOI), a group that seeks to overthrow the Islamic Republic.
The report added that Khosravi was also accused of providing photos of the country's military facilities to the MEK, as well as helping to recruit for the group.
Hassiba Hadj Saharoui, Amnesty International's Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa, has said that the Iranian authorities are about to execute a man who did not receive a fair trial in total disregard of both international law and the Iranian law.
With the human rights groups proclaiming widespread condemnation against the judicial trial, the report suggests that Iran has been making claims that its judicial system is fair and alleges that the West is using accusations of human rights abuses as a way to undermine it.
