Yaghoob Mehrnehad (Mirnehad) a blogger and reporter for Mardomsalari newspaper executed for allegedly being terrorist, threatening national security and being enemy of God (Mohareb) in 05 July, 2008 in Sistan-Baluchistan province, south-east of Iran.
Iranian Judiciary accused Mehrnehad to have association with Jundallah, an armed Sunni Muslim group operating on the Iran-Pakistan border. There has not been any evidence to suggest that he was connected to Jundallah group.
Yaghoob Mehrnehad, an ethnic Baluchi, was the executive director of Voice of Justice Youth Association, a local NGO. He was critical of officials in his blog and the corruption in the system. He called for resignation or removal of local officials from office.
He was arrested in May 2007 and sentenced to death in February, 2008. They sentenced him to death in an unfair trial and executed him as fast as possible. Iranian human rights activists are still in shock because they were campaigning for his freedom.
International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran organization has investigated his case through out; they say:
Bloggers in Iran strongly condemn his execution and they are campaigning against this savage and unfair form of justice. This Judiciary is a sham which doesn't care to innocent and human rights. It is part of a fear doctrine in Islamic Republic of Iran.
Along with Mehrnehad, Abdolnasser Taheri was executed too for the same crimes. Unfortunately we don't have any information about him yet.
With these two executions, so far it's about 195 executions carried out this year.
