According to the semi-official Mizan news agency, which is affiliated with the regime’s judiciary, the two were executed for killing a member of the regime’s paramilitary Basij and blocking the Karaj-Qazvin expressway, which is located west of Tehran. According to Amnesty International, the trials “bear no resemblance to a meaningful judicial proceeding.”
Karami and Hosseini were also found guilty of “corruption on Earth,” a term and charge used by the mullahs’ so-called judiciary against others that carries the death penalty. To this day, four men are known to have been executed by the mullahs’ regime for participating in the September protests. All were subjected to rapid and closed-door trials.
This morning bloodthirsty Khamenei shed the blood of #MohammadMehdiKarami & #SeyedMohammadHosseini to save his rule in face of #IranRevolution
But the blood of these brave souls runs in the veins of millions of Iran’s youths determined to bring down Khamenei #StopExecutionsinIran

Last month, Iranian opposition President-elect Maryam Rajavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) called on the United Nations, the UN Security Council, the European Union, and member states to take effective and practical measures against the regime’s killing sprees, torture, and executions.
“If the mullahs think Iran’s revolution can be stopped through repression, torture, and execution, they are gravely mistaken. Iran protests and the regime’s overthrow are our people’s response to suppression and killings, which are Khamenei’s main tool for retaining power,” Mrs. Rajavi explained.
Imprisoned protester, #Mohsen Shekari, 23, was executed on Khamenei’s order, showing the regime’s fear in the face of #IranRevolution and the prospect of being overthrown. This vicious crime will fuel people’s anger. Courageous youths and protesters will not remain silent. pic.twitter.com/tCG3GpBsKB
