Mohammad Ghobadlo, a protester who was arrested on the charge of "corruption on earth" after participating in an anti-government rally, was sentenced to death after just one hearing, his mother said on Monday.
"My son is only 22 years old and he is also ill. They deprived him of having a lawyer and do not allow lawyers to enter the court,” Ghobadlo's mother said in a clip published online.
The charge of “corruption on earth” is often used by the Iranian authorities against seemingly innocent individuals to capture a wide range of so-called political or religious crimes.
"They interrogated him without having access to a lawyer, and sentenced him to death after only one hearing. Is this Islamic justice? In which court of law do they sentence people to death after just one hearing? They are going to execute him soon. I ask people to help," she added in the video.
