According to reports by the Italian news agencies, the death sentence for Mohammad Hossein Naghdi, an Iranian dissident in Italy was signed by Khomeini.
A document which was submitted to a murder trial court in Rome, indicated that the death decree for those who opposed the ruling fundamentalist in Iran was issued by Khomeini, founder of the fundamentalist regime ruling in Iran.
Naghdi was assassinated on March 16, 1993 close to his office in Rome. The text of the death decree was submitted to the court by Paolo Sodani, the lawyer for the prosecution. The document stipulates that these people are demagogues and are at war against god, therefore they should be killed.
The only person charged in Naghdiâ€™s murder case is a 47-year-old man, Amir Mansour Bozorgian, connected to the Iranian regime. He is being tried in absentia.
