Mohammad Salas will be executed after Ramadan

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), Tehran’s Prosecutor says appeal for reconsideration into the execution verdict for Mohammad Salas, member of a religious sect (Darvish) in Iran, has not been accepted by the court and he will be executed after Ramadan.

He was arrested last year over the charges of killing three Iranian policemen during a demonstration in Tehran. Mohammad Salas denies the charges saying at the time the policemen were killed by the driver of a van, he was already in prison.
