(Persia Digest) – An Iranian pop star and composer has started a campaign to save inmates on death row. To date, he has been able to save 32 people from execution with the help of his fan base.
Mohsen Chavoshi has done this in total silence without any media coverage. In the latest case, an Afghan boy who was sentenced to death for murder was saved with people’s help.
He started the campaign in his Instagram account and raised the amount of the diyeh required by the next of kin to save the offender from execution.
An Iranian music journalist close to Chavoshi recently reported this.
