115 executions in two weeks across IranPublished by International Liberty on April 27, 2015
The murderous mullahs have sharply increased executions to terrorise the population
The wave of executions across Iran is continuing unabated. The anti-human regime sent another 30 prisoners to the gallows between 22 to 26 April.
On 22 April nine prisoners were collectively hanged in Vakil Abad prison in Shiraz. Sixteen other prisoners were executed in Bandar Abbas, Kerman and Jiroft on 23 April. Further executions on 25 and 26 April in Rasht, Zanjan and Abhar brought the execution toll of the week to over 30, hence the number of executions in Iran in the two weeks between 13 to 26 April reached 115.
Of course the real number of executed prisoner is much highter than this. According to reports from inside the country, a large number of prisoners have been executed secretly in Arak in recent weeks.
Iran rulers, surrounded by growing political, social and economic crises, and worried about the consequences of the nuclear negotiations, have resorted to increased executions and torture to create an atmosphere of fear. The silence and inaction of the international community against the brutal and systematic violation of human rights in Iran has emboldened the regime.
