Iran executes a karate champion.

Amid Iran executes a karate champion. Iran hanged two young men on Saturday, January 7, one a karate champion and the other a volunteer children’s coach, bringing the total number of people known to have been executed in connection with the country’s protests since September to four.

Mohammad Mehdi Karami and Seyed Mohammad Hosseini were hanged early Saturday morning, according to the Iranian state-run Fars News.

According to Iran’s judiciary news agency Mizan, the pair allegedly took part in anti-regime protests last year and were convicted of killing Seyed Ruhollah Ajamian, a member of the country’s Basij paramilitary force, in Karaj on November 3.

Mohammad Hossein Aghasi, a lawyer for Karami, said on Twitter on Saturday that Karami was not given the final right to speak to his family before his execution.

Karami, according to his lawyer, began a dry food hunger strike on Wednesday in protest of officials’ refusal to allow Aghasi to represent him.

According to Iranian officials, up to 41 more protesters have been sentenced to death in recent months.

Karami, 21, was an Iranian-Kurdish karate champion with an Olympic rings tattoo on the inside of his arm. Karami, according to his cousin, was a brave, intelligent boy who began karate at the age of 11. He later joined the Iranian youth national team and won the national championships.

Karami’s parents posted a video on social media last month pleading with the Iranian government to spare his life. “My son is among Iran’s karate champions, has several national titles, and was the fourth-ranked member of Iran’s national team,” his father said. I implore you to vacate the execution warrant.”

Karami was found guilty on December 5, less than a week after his trial in Tehran for the alleged murder of a paramilitary. According to Amnesty International, the trial bore “no resemblance to a meaningful judicial proceeding.” His family claims he was tortured in prison and was denied access to counsel.

“I go to the court and prison every morning and then walk aimlessly in the streets,” Karami’s father said, according to Amnesty International. I went to prison this morning, but the assistant prosecutor stationed there was not there. They told me that if my case was related to the protests, I had to stop going there. They make no response to you.

“Every night, I am terrified that they will tell me that my child has been executed,” his father said. “I’ve given up… They have sentenced my child to death and could execute him at any time.”

According to Ye-One Rhie, Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini, 20, was arrested while on his way to visit his parent’s graves. His brother was also kidnapped and has not been heard from since, according to the parliamentarian.

According to Amnesty International, Hosseini was sentenced to death at the same hearing as Karami and two other men, Hamid Ghare-Hasalou and Hossein Mohammadi.

According to Amnesty International, the convictions were based on coerced confessions.

“Before the group trial began, state media broadcast the defendants’ forced “confessions,” describing them as “murderers,” in violation of their rights to the presumption of innocence and freedom from torture and other cruel, inhumane, and degrading treatment,” Amnesty said.
