Death sentence for Iranian rapper overturned

Iran's Supreme Court has overturned the death sentence for Iranian rapper Toomaj Salehi, accused of inciting riots, Reuters reported on Saturday, citing his lawyer. However, according to the lawyer, this is not the end. He informed that based on the appeal decision, the case “will be transferred for consideration” to another department.

In his work, 33-year-old Salehi supported the protests that broke out in 2022 in Iran after the death in police custody of Mahsa Amini, a young Kurdish woman arrested by the customs police for allegedly wearing an “inappropriate” hijab. The revolutionary court accused the musician of “inciting rebellion, assembly, conspiracy, propaganda against the system and inciting riots.”
