Iranian fighter Mehdi Al Husseini was sentenced to death under the talion principle, Marca reports.
The 29-year-old athlete was found guilty of murder. In 2015, another young man was killed in a fight with Al Husseini. The Iranian court allowed the relatives of the deceased to implement the principle of equal retribution. The fighter was sentenced to death by hanging.
The 27-year-old received two death sentences for participating in anti-government rallies in 2018. According to the Human Rights Activists News Agency, Afkari was tortured to force him to confess to crimes.
