 – German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said Tuesday that efforts to advocate on behalf of a German-Iranian national sentenced to death in Iran had been disregarded by Tehran.

She called on the Iranian leadership to remedy shortcomings in its judicial process and refrain from imposing the death penalty.

Iran‘s judiciary sentenced German-Iranian national Jamshid Sharmahd to death on charges of “corruption on earth”, the judiciary’s Mizan news agency reported on Tuesday.
