Iranian Soccer Player Amir Nasr-Azadani Sentenced To Execution For Campaigning For Women’s Rights

26-year-old former football player for Iran’s national youth team, Amir Nasr-Azadani, has been sentenced to be hanged by the Iranian regime.

Apart from the national youth team, Nasr-Azadani has played in Iran’s premier league for teams like Rah-Ahan Tehran FC, Tractor SC and Gol-e Rayhan.

Amir Nasr-Azadani has been arrested for committing ‘moharabeh,’ which is a Persian term that roughly translates to ‘waging war against God.’

However, reports in news agencies across Iran, suggest that the regime has arrested Nasr-Azadani for the alleged murder of Colonel Esmaeil Cheraghi, and two members of Iran’s voluntary paramilitary service, known as Basij.

It has also been reported that the footballer appeared on state television on November 20 and read out his confession while there have also been contrary reports that Nasr-Azadani was not present in the area where Cheraghi and the two Basij members were killed.

What is known is that Nasr-Azadani has actively campaigned for women’s rights and freedom amid the ongoing protests in Iran and this is seen as the regime’s way to silence such public displays of solidarity with the protestors.
