The trial of rights activist Narges Mohammadi, scheduled for Monday, July 6, was cancelled for no specific reason. The Ministry of Intelligence raised new allegations and requested the maximum punishment for Mohammadi.
Hamid Reza Mohammadi, Narges’ brother, said, “The Ministry of Intelligence requested the maximum punishment, because Narges has not heeded to their demands. A number of new allegations have been added to her case, including the strange one of cooperation with ISIS! We believe that the reason behind such an accusation is my sister’s opposition with the execution of a number of Sunnis and requesting fair trials in their court hearings by judiciary officials.”
Hamid Reza Mohammadi also said, “Her activities in the Center of Human Rights Activists and launching the campaign to “Stepwise revocation of Capital Punishment” are amongst the other charges raised against her”.
