Iran has executed a convict linked to the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO).
Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani was executed Sunday morning after being convicted for actively trying to advance the goals of the MKO terror group.
He was arrested in 2007 after having been previously detained in the 1980s.
Khosravi Savadjani was sentenced to death for providing documents and photos of Iran’s important centers including military sites as well as giving financial aid to the MKO and the media affiliated to the terror group.
He had also tried to recruit for the terrorist organization .
Khosravi Savadjani's death sentence was approved by Iran's Supreme Court after he was tried and sentenced at a Tehran branch of Islamic Revolution Court in the presence of his lawyer and the representative of the country’s prosecutor general.
Out of the nearly 17,000 Iranians killed in terrorist attacks since the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, 12,000 have fallen victim to the acts of terror carried out by the MKO.
The MKO fled Iran in 1986 for Iraq, where it received the backing of Iraq’s executed dictator Saddam Hussein and set up a camp near the Iranian border. The terrorist group also sided with Saddam during Iraq’s eight-year imposed war on the Islamic Republic in 1980-1988.
