TEHRAN – Iranian Judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni Eje'i announced on Sunday that the Supreme Court has confirmed the death sentence against Hamid Baqeri-Darmani for bribery and fraud which was issued in a lower court.

In October, the Judiciary announced that Baqeri-Darmani and Vahid Mazloumin, a mogul known as the lord of gold coins in Iran, had been sentenced to death. Mazloumin was executed in November.

Speaking at a press conference, Mohseni Eje'i also said the special courts for economic crimes have handed down prison sentences to a number of individuals for disrupting the economy, ISNA reported.
