According to reports from inside Iran the clerical regime in Iran has executed 37 prisoners across the country in just three days, between 19 to 21 May 2015.
Three prisoners were executed in public in the cities of Qouchan, Minab and Shiraz. The execution in Minab was carried out in the town’s football field in order to further intensify the atmosphere of fear among the youth. In Shiraz, the prisoner who was condemned to death received 111 lashes before execution.
On May 20 and 21 a further 24 prisoners were executed in group hangings in Ghezel Hessar and Gohardasht prisons in Karaj. Eight of those who were hanged in the early morning hours of Thursday, 21 May, in Ghezel Hessar Prison were among the prisoners who had protested the wave of collective and secret executions in this prison on 17 August 2014.
Ten other prisoners were executed in Shiraz and Arak on May 19.
The objective of the regime of velayat-e faqih (Shia equivalent of a Caliph) that the Iranian people call ‘the Godfather of ISIS’, is to intensify the atmosphere of terror and fear in order to control social protests that have turned into a nightmare for the clerical regime.
