Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Releases “Tens Of Thousands” Of Convicts From Custody

According to state media, anybody accused of “spying for foreign agencies” or of being “associated with parties hostile to the Islamic Republic” would not be eligible for Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s pardon.

What Happened To Him?

The supreme leader of Iran has released “tens of thousands” of detainees, including some who were detained during recent anti-government demonstrations, according to state news agency IRNA on Sunday.

According to rights organisations, the crackdown has resulted in approximately 500 deaths, including 70 juveniles. According to the Iranian judiciary, at least four people have been hanged.

On September 20, 2022, a demonstrator on Istanbul’s Istiklal Avenue is seen holding a portrait of Mahsa Amini. Amini was a young Iranian woman who passed away after being detained by the Islamic Republic’s morality police in Tehran.

In Custody

The head of the court, Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei, wrote to Khamenei asking for his forgiveness, stating: “During recent events, a number of people, especially young people, performed improper deeds and crimes as a result of the indoctrination and propaganda of the enemy.

Since the hangings started, protests have significantly decreased. Many of these youth now regret their conduct, according to Ejei, because the plans of the foreign foes and anti-revolutionary currents were thwarted.
