Iran: Execution of 22 prisoners, including a woman and two executions in public Whipping a young man in public
The anti-human regime of mullahs sent 22 people to the gallows during the days of 1 to 5 July. At least seven prisoners were hanged on July 5 at Gohardasht Prison in Karaj. Among the executed was Omid Rostami, 28, and Abbas Yusefipur was previously severely beaten by the agents of prison, and was taken to the hospital by the order of Dariush Amiriyan, the interior director of the prison. A number of prisoners were executed on the basis of confessions that were forcefully taken from them under torture. The gathering of the executed families in protest against the execution of their children and their relatives outside Gohardasht Prison was attacked by oppressive forces. Police agents were trying to disperse the victims' families by air firing.
NCRI Foreign Affairs Committee chief comments on recent spate of executions in Iran
“In the month of April, during and after visits to Iran by the Prime Minister of Italy and the EU foreign policy chief dozens of people have been executed in Iran. Among the latest cases was the execution of eight Iranian Baluchis in Zahedan Prison on Saturday and Tuesday.
The increasing trend of executions indicates that the visits of senior European officials to Iran not only have failed to improve the human rights situation; rather, they have given a message of silence and inaction to the mullahs. This has emboldened the clerical regime in stepping up executions and suppressing the Iranian people. This is the regime that has been the record holder of executions per ca pita globally in 2015. This bitter reality is not an issue of pride for any of the guests of the religious fascism.
