Iranian-German dual national sentenced to death for ‘terrorism’

A Tehran court sentences to death an Iranian-German dual national accused of being the leader of a “terrorist” group behind a deadly 2008 mosque bombing, the judiciary says.

“The Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced Jamshid Sharmahd, the leader of the Tondar terrorist group, to death on the charge of corruption on earth through planning and directing terrorist acts,” the judiciary’s Mizan Online news agency reports.

Mizan says Sharmahd can appeal against his death sentence before the supreme court.

Iran-born Sharmahd, 67, who is also a German national and a US resident, was arrested in August 2020. The group he is accused of leading aims to topple the Islamic Republic and is outlawed as a terrorist organization by Iran.
