Political prisoner Mehran Gharahbaghi has been charged in Iran with corruption on earth and national security crimes punishable by death.
By the orders of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), on Tuesday, December 21, 2021, the regime’s judiciary filed new charges against the political prisoner Mehran Gharahbaghi, including “corruption on earth,” “propaganda against the state,” and “membership in the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI).”
The IRGC arrested Mehran Gharabaghi on December 19, 2019, and transferred him to Behbahan Prison after interrogating and torturing him for a month.
Gharabaghi was transferred from Behbahan Prison to the MOIS Detention Center in Ahvaz on July 12, and new charges were filed against him.
On December 25, 2021, he was transferred to Sheiban Prison in Ahvaz, prompting concerns about his fate.
The new charges were issued by Seyed-Nasser Taheri-Nasab, an investigator with Branch 3 of the Behbahan “Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor’s Office.”
The MOIS has repeatedly asked Mr. Gharabaghi’s family to pressure their son to renounce his beliefs and collaborate with the MOIS against the MEK; otherwise, he would be executed.
Mehran suffers from heart disease due to torture and very harsh living conditions in prison.
