Iranian-German Man Sentenced To Death Over Terrorism

Iranian-German citizen Jamshid Sharmahd has been sentenced to death by Iran’s judiciary on terrorism charges.

The 67-year-old has United States residency and was accused of a deadly 2008 bombing and planning other attacks across the country.

Sharmahd is accused of being the leader of the US-based group Tondar, which says it seeks to restore the monarchy that was overthrown after the last shah fled Iran shortly before the 1979 revolution, Al Jazeera added.

The group runs radio and television stations abroad that support Iranian opposition groups.

His main charge is masterminding a 2008 bombing at a mosque in the city of Shiraz, which killed 14 people and injured hundreds.

The judiciary said Sharmahd wanted to carry out 23 “terrorist acts” and succeeded in executing five.

It said they include other bombings, arson, assassinations and leaking classified information about the missile programme of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
