Iran calls for death penalty on reformists in dock

Iran has called for the death penalty on former government ministers who were today put on trial for allegedly orchestrating pro-democracy protests.

One of the first in the dock in today’s mass hearing was Saeed Hajjarian, a former deputy intelligence minister who is opposed to the hardine regime of President Ahmadinejad. Mr Hajjarian is accused of acting against Iran’s national security – a crime punishable by death.

“Hajjarian is charged with acting against national security and propaganda against the Islamic establishment by spreading suspicion of vote-rigging … and provoking illegal protests,” Iran’s official IRNA news agency reported from the trial.
