The Urmia Military Court rejected the request for parole and probation of Farooq Sharoviriani and Amir Peyghami, two Kurdish political prisoners from the city of Oshnovieh in Kerman Prison.
According to an informed source, these two Kurdish political prisoners went on leave a few days ago after the outbreak of the corona virus and applied to the Urmia Military Court for amnesty and parole.
The informed source added: Seyyed Ebrahim Hosseini, the judge in the case of these two political prisoners, and Shahram Panahian, the judge in charge of enforcing the verdicts of the Urmia Military Court, opposed the request of these two political prisoners and announced that they would not be paroled.
The informed source stated: Seyyed Ebrahim Hosseini has announced to these two political prisoners that it does not matter what decisions the judiciary and the leader of the Iranian government make, we are ordering here and we are against your request for probation and parole.
