Shakir Behroozi, a Kurdish political prisoner, was transferred to an “unknown location” following the death sentence.
Mr. Behrozi, whose death sentence was recently upheld by the Supreme Court for the second time, has been “released from political custody under the pretext of meeting his brother” since early Wednesday and has been unaware of his condition.
Due to the secret execution of Firuz Musaloo, a Kurdish political prisoner, in Urmia Prison, a similar situation is likely to be repeated in connection with the execution of Shakir Behrozi.
Mr. Behroozi has only 20 days to appeal the verdict.
The death sentence of this Kurdish political prisoner was first confirmed in September of last year in Branch 31 of the Supreme Court, based in Qom.
Shaker Behroozi returned to Iran after seven months of membership in the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran, but was arrested in March 2018 by Urmia Intelligence Forces. He was sentenced to death in September 2020 in the Islamic Revolutionary Tribunal of Urmia on charges of membership in the Komala Party.
Last week, Firuz MusaLoo, a Kurdish political prisoner, was secretly executed on charges of negligence in the Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK), and security forces secretly buried the body of the political prisoner.
