Navid Afkari (Persian: نوید افکاری‎; 1993 – September 12, 2020) was an Iranian wrestler who was sentenced to death by the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran for taking part in the 2018 Iranian protests. His brothers Vahid and Habib were sentenced to 54 and 27 years in prison in the same case. Navid was executed in the early morning hours of September 12, 2020 in the Adel-Abad prison in Shiraz.
Reactions
Afkari's death sentence sparked global outrage and calls to overturn his execution, including from U.S. President Donald Trump and UFC President Dana White. Trump tweeted on Sep 4, 2020:Hearing that Iran is looking to execute a great and popular wrestling star, 27-year-old Navid Afkarai, whose sole act was an anti-government demonstration on the streets. They were protesting the “country’s worsening economic situation and inflation”. To the leaders of Iran, I would greatly appreciate if you would spare this young man’s life, and not execute him. Thank you!US State Department spokeswoman, Morgan Ortagus, tweeted: "We join the world in outrage at the Iranian regime's death sentence for Navid Afkari, who was tortured into giving a false confession after participating in peaceful protests in 2018. "The regime also tortured his two brothers and sentenced them to decades in prison. Let them go!"
