Iran’s Revolutionary Guard arrested Fatahian last year in the Kurdish city of Kamyiaran. He was charged with helping a Kurdish opposition group and sentenced to 10 year in prison by a revolutionary court in the city of Snne. The verdict was later changed to the death by hanging.

Ehsan Fatahian and 13 other Kurdish activists are currently waiting to be executed by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
