A prisoner of conscience in Iran, who has undergone sixteen hunger strikes to protest the harsh conditions

imposed on him, was sentenced to death on 27 August 2017 for establishing a spiritual group, Erfan-e Halgheh.

This is the third time the authorities had sought the death penalty against Mohammad Ali Taheri for the same activities.



  • Mohammad Ali Taheri, who is in a fragile health condition, has been in pre-trial solitary confinement for over six years in Iran’s notorious Evin prison.
  • He was sentenced to five years in prison and later sentenced to death for the charge of “Corruption on Earth”.
  • The initial death sentence was quashed in December 2015, but the investigation into his case continued. 
  • On February 7th, 2016 (1.5 years ago), he completed serving his unjust five-year sentence and should have been released. However, the Iranian authorities have continued to imprison him in solitary confinement without a charge. 
  • Currently, Mohammad Ali Taheri was sentenced to death on 27 August for establishing a spiritual group, Erfan-e Halgheh.

We need the support of the international community in our effort to voice our concern and let the Iranian authorities know that the world is watching and will not remain silent.
