Trump urges Iran not to execute champion wrestler Navid Afkari

Trump urges Iran not to execute champion wrestler Navid Afkari”

UFC president Dana White pleads online to the Iranian government for the sparing of champion wrestler's life.

"I heard that Iran goes to execute an excellent and common wrestling star, 27-year-old Navid Afkarai, whose exclusively act was an anti-government demonstration". Following interrogations, a confession was coerced from Afkari, and he was subsequently sentenced to death - Something later confirmed by a state-run news program.

The Human Rights Activists News Agency published an image of a letter from Navid Afkari in which he said the Iranian authorities tortured him to force him to confess to the manufactured charges against him. Trump tagged his close friend White in the post.

White, who maintains a large roster of fighters and wrestlers from around the world, has taken up Afkari's case and urged the authorities to do something to stave off his execution.

The 27-year-old wrestler has been sentenced to death in Iran.

"To the leaders of Iran, I'd drastically respect it should you would save the lifetime of this younger man and never execute him". With no date yet scheduled for an execution, White is using his connections in the White House in a bid to try and save Afkari's life.

In 2018, protests broke out in several Iranian cities over the country's falling currency and economic woes, leading to violence between police and protesters.

Afkari, 27, was handed a penalty of two death sentences - as well as 74 lashes with a whip - for his role in a peaceful protest against the Iran government's economic policies in 2018.

"It was brought to my attention".

This is undoubtedly a tricky situation that Dana White and Donald Trump have gotten involved in.

'The only thing I could think to do was to call the President and see if he could help this man. He said, 'Let us look into it. Let me talk to the administration and see if there is something we can do to save his life.' So the President tweeted (a plea to the Iranian government).

'Today the President tweeted the tweet attached to this video and I would like to say I too respectfully and humbly ask the government officials in Iran to not execute this man and spare his life'.
