Prosecutor of Kermanshah. Responsible for a dramatic increase in death sentences, including seven hangings in one day on 3 January 2010 in Kermanshah’s central prison, following Judge Maleki’s indictment. He is, therefore, responsible for the excessive and increasing use of the death penalty.

On 10 October 2011, the European Union published the names of 29 officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran including Mojtaba Maleki whom the E.U. asserts are “responsible for serious human rights violations” and is thus subjecting to travel bans and asset freezes.[1]
