Responding to the nationwide strike, the regime’s judiciary officials and Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) are continuously resorting to threats of arrests and executions.

Iran’s Attorney General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri threatened to execute the strike organizers on charges of “threatening national security.”

He said on September 29th as cited by Iranian regime state media: “According to the information we have, in some routes, some of the cities, there are elements who are provoking some of the truckers, or possibly blocking them and creating problems for them. They are subject to the rules and regulations of banditry and the punishment of the bandits according to the law is very severe, sometimes resulting in the death penalty”.
