Personal life[edit]

Mohammadkhani was involved in a public court case in Iran, after his wife Laleh Saharkhizan was found murdered in her apartment on 9 October 2002. Shahla Jahed, his mistress in a temporary marriage arrangement was convicted of the murder of Laleh. Mohammadkhani was in Germany when the killing happened, but it emerged later that he was "temporarily married" to Jahed, a practice allowed under Shia Islam and thus under Iranian law. Jahed was executed in 2010, following the completion of the appeals procedure. In 2008, the then chief of Iran's judiciary, Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, ordered a fresh investigation and did not sanction her execution ruling that her initial conviction (based as it was on a confession she made under duress) was unacceptable.[4]
