Zartosht says No to execution
Iranian political prisoner, Zartosht Ahmadi Ragheb was taken to court on Wednesday 23rd November 2016, with handcuffs. He boldly raised his handcuffs hands and declared that his only crime is saying "NO to Death Penalty" and "NO to Forced Hijab (Mandatory veiling)".
On 13th November 2016, Zartosht Ahmadi Ragheb was detained at his home without any warrant by the agents of the Ministry of Intelligence and he was then transferred to ward 209 of Evin prison. After the trial ended, he said to his wife that he will go on hunger strike as a sign of protest, if he is not transferred to the general ward. During this time, he was kept in solitary confinement.
