An ex-opposition leader Ruhollah Zam to death – Iran court.

An Iran court on Tuesday 30 June sentenced to death  Ruhollah Zam,  an ex-Opposition leader exiled in France over anti-government protests.

Convict has been in exile in France since last year after Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGS) had announced the arrest of Zam in October last year. The Iran court indicted Zam over corruption charges.

“The court has considered 13 counts of charges together as instances of corruption on earth and therefore passed the death sentence,”  judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had called Zam a “counter-revolutionary” who was “directed by France’s intelligence service”. Zam had reportedly taken part in anti-government protests in 2017 and ran a channel on the Telegram messaging app called Amadnews.

Telegram was subsequently shut down Amadnews.
