The new wave of executions in the Islamic Republic

This year alone, the judiciary in Iran carried out more than 300 death sentences. A German-Iranian could soon end up on the gallows.

A German citizen faces the death penalty in Iran. Jamshid Sharmadh faces terrorism charges. The daughter of the German-Iranian fears that her father could soon be executed. Iran is currently experiencing a wave of executions, with more than 300 executions carried out in the first half of the year, almost as many as in all of last year. The Iranian judiciary wants to use mass executions to create more space in the prisons, say human rights activists.

Sharmadh came to Germany from Iran in the 1980s and took on German citizenship. The software developer moved to the USA almost 20 years ago, where he became involved in the Iranian opposition group Tondar. On a business trip two years ago, according to his daughter Gazelle, he was kidnapped by Iranian agents during a stopover in Dubai, taken to Iran and put on trial. Gazelle Sharmadh said his health deteriorated in solitary confinement. Her father’s teeth had all fallen out and he could hardly walk.
