Eight protesters from Tehran’s Ekbatan Town went on trial before the Revolutionary Court on February 20 in connection with the death of a member of the paramilitary Basij force.

The defendants face charges of "waging war against God," "collusion," "insulting the leadership," "propaganda" and "membership in an anti-Islamic Republic group."

Lawyer Payam Derfashan said the case has "fundamental flaws" and that torture was used to extract confessions from the accused.
