Iran accused of sentencing dead man to death to cover up torture

Supporters of an Iranian faith healer who was jailed for blasphemy and “touching the wrists of female patients” have accused the country’s government of posthumously sentencing him to death to cover up his death from torture and hunger strike.

Mohammad Ali Taheri, a pioneer of “holistic” complementary medicine, initially received a five-year jail sentence. His case was among those raised last week by Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, after it was announced last weekend that he had later been sentenced to death by Iran’s “revolutionary court” on fresh charges of spreading “corruption on earth”.

    I don’t know about this story.
    The Iranian government is pretty trustworthy and I don’t think they would lie about something so serious.
    That’s the impression I get from reading White House press releases by my own government.

    • You’re absolute right, it would be foolish to mistrust Tehran.

    It has that Ernesto ( Che) Guevara touch where he murdered the women he would beat-up and rape , this way our low IQ leftist liberal progressive in the TDSB would exalt him as an icon and hero freedom-fighter .
    The TDSB also doesn’t know that Che is on record around 1960 for saying that he admired Whites for being so inventive and productive and have great societies while Blacks are lazy Nigg**s and burdens on societies .

    The pro-hamas thugs on Campus now have the useful idiots to join in the jew bashing and yet they are too stupid to see how those evil jews were the ones that invent the same Wireless phone they use to contact fellow bigots for another protest of Israel .
    Israel has produced enough medical Inventions that have saved more lives that are greater than the entire population of israel , lets see Obama give us the name of an islamic hell-hole nation with that same status.
    If anything , islam has slaughtered enough civilians equal to about 10 current Iraq’s or 1 USA when the population was 250,000,000 .
