Farzad Kamangar was a 32-year-old Iranian Kurdish teacher and social worker from the city of Kamyaran, Iran who was executed on May 9, 2010.
He was prosecuted on charges of Mohareb which means "enmity towards God."
An Islamic Revolutionary Court sentenced Kamangar to death on February 25, 2008 on charges against national security including active participation in several bombing attacks among which was the 2006 explosion in the Iran-Turkey gas export pipeline.
According to his lawyer, Khalil Bahramian, " Nothing in Kamangars judicial files and records demonstrates any links to the charges brought against him."
Amnesty International reports that Mr. Kamangar was repeatedly beaten, flogged, and electrocuted, and that he suffered from spasms in his arms and legs as a result of the torture.
