“These brave Iranians have been fighting for their human rights – and we remain united in our support and unity against heinous acts.” [du gouvernement iranien]Can we especially read in the tweet that was deleted almost 12 hours after it was posted.

The post was eventually taken down because it was said that “the letter was based on an initial report that was incomplete and lacked the necessary context,” according to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office sent to QMI.

“[La publication] It was based on reports of serious concerns raised by international human rights advocates warning of the possibility of future sentences, including the death penalty, against thousands of Iranian protesters already arrested by the regime.

However, the tweet did not mention any possible conviction.

“Canada condemns the Iranian regime’s barbaric decision to impose the death penalty on nearly 15,000 protesters,” the removed Twitter post read.

We must not lose sight of the fact that someone has already been sentenced to death and that Iranian parliamentarians should not demand any death penalty. The Prime Minister’s office added that dozens of demonstrators were killed by the regime’s security forces.

Remember that, according to CNN, several celebrities shared Justin Trudeau’s tweet before it was deleted.
