Human Rights in Iran – Tuesday, September 6, 2022 – The Tehran Province Appeals Court issued a court decision confirming the conviction of Azar Karvandi Mousazadeh.

According to the report of Human Rights in Iran, political activist Azar Karvandi Mousazadeh was sentenced in recent days to five years in prison by the Tehran Province Appeals Court.

According to the lawsuit issued by the Tehran Province Appeals Court, this political activist has been sentenced to five years in prison on charges of “assembly and collusion with the intent to act against national security through sympathizing with The People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI)”.

It should be noted that Azar Karvandi Mousazadeh was tried by Branch 26 of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court, presided over by Iman Afshari, in May 2021 and sentenced to five years in prison on charges of “assembly and collusion with the intent to act against national security through sympathizing with The People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI)”.

In the summer of 2019, this political activist was arrested by Intelligence Ministry agents in Shahriar County and after being transferred to Evin Prison and passing the interrogation and investigation proceedings, was released on bail.

Suppression of citizens and filing accusations against them based on the scenario of security agencies violates Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, adopted on December 16, 1966.

Also, the right to due process is one of the incontrovertible rights, which is also emphasized in Article 10 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The impossibility of the accused to have access to a lawyer, as well as denying the person access to other necessities in a judicial process, violates Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights adopted on December 16, 1966.

Article 5 of the Criminal Procedure Code emphasizes on informing the defendants as soon as possible of the charges against them, as well as the right to access a lawyer and other defense rights mentioned in the law.
