Supreme Court Confirms Death Sentence for 8 IS Terrorists

 A judiciary official said on Monday that the Supreme Court has confirmed the death sentence of 8 members of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group in connection with the twin attacks last year in the capital. “The death sentences against terrorists, whose appeals were referred to the Supreme Court, were confirmed on Monday,” deputy head of the judiciary Gholamreza Ansari said, Mehr News Agency reported.
The convicts, who had been attending court hearings since April, were sentenced to death after being found guilty of “complicity in corruption on Earth” on May 13. They had 20 days to appeal.
They are among 26 members of the terror group which claimed responsibility for a simultaneous attack on the Majlis and the mausoleum of the founder of the Islamic Republic in June 2017. The attackers were either killed or arrested while their accomplices were captured in the following months–mainly in operations along the borders with Iraq and Turkey.
