About this Case

Case Remarks

Mr. Seyed Ali's name is on a November 1990 United Nations list of persons allegedly executed in Iran. The list does not mention the charges upon which the victim was convicted. It has been reported to the United Nations' special representative: "That trials before Islamic revolutionary courts have usually taken place in secret, sometimes inside prisons, that defendants have not usually enjoyed the right to be represented by a lawyer, and often have not even been made aware that the proceedings were in fact a trial and not an interrogation session."
