Haydar Ghorbani, an Iranian Kurdish political prisoner sentenced to death by Iran, had his appeal for a retrial rejected by Tehran’s highest judicial authority.
Ghorbani was arrested along with his brother-in-law in 2016 on charges of “cooperating and assisting” in the killing of several members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), as well as membership in the opposition group the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI).
Iran’s Kurdish-populated western provinces have witnessed recurring clashes between the Iranian military and Iranian Kurdish militant groups over the years.
The Supreme Court of Iran, which last month approved Ghorbani’s death sentence, denied a request by Ghorbani’s lawyer for a retrial for his client earlier this month, the lawyer told Voice of America Persian.
Haydar Ghorbani's wife called the world for help to stop execution of this innocent man. Regime in Iran won't hear because it's illegal but the world and those who believe in humanity and human rights, must hear and do something for him#SaveHaydarGhorbanipic.twitter.com/CsVIwmPbti
