Opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi urged Iranian judiciary to rescind the death sentence of Mohammad Amin Valian. Mohammad Amin Valian is an Ashura Day detainee who has been handed a death sentence for the charge of enmity with God (Moharebeh).

In a report published on Saham News, Mehdi Karroubi declared that the charge of "Moharebeh" has been distorted in recent months.

Ali Mohammad Zamani and Arash Rahmanipour were executed recently for the charge of "Moharebeh."

Recently Iranian authorities and supporters of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have been labelling election protesters with the charge of "Mohareb", or enemy of God.

Reports about the execution sentence of Mohammad Amin Valian have attracted widespread reaction across the world. Human rights organizations and reformist clerics have condemned the sentence and even the US urged the Islamic Republic to rescind the sentence.

Today Tehran Prosecutor-General announced that the sentence of Valian has not been pronounced yet and once he receives the sentence he still has the opportunity to appeal it.
