Amnesty Calls for Release of Iranian Rapper Toomaj Salehi on Death Row

Amnesty International has called for the immediate release of Iranian rapper Toomaj Salehi and quashing of his death sentence.

The dissident rapper is at risk of execution after a Revolutionary Court in Esfahan sentenced him to death in April 2024 solely in relation to his participation in the “Woman Life Freedom” uprising and social media posts critical of the Iranian authorities. His trial was grossly unfair, and authorities dismissed his complaints of torture, including electric shocks, death threats and repeated beatings resulting in bone fractures and vision impairment in one eye.
