A prisoner hanged in northern IranPublished by International Liberty on December 12, 2015
The Iranian regime’s henchmen hanged a 36-year-old father of three in a prison in the city of Gorgan in northern Iran.
The victim identified as Hossein Naybandani had been sentenced to death for “transferring and being in possession of drugs.”
Naybandani was hanged early morning on Sunday in the main prison in Gorgan.
There has been no official information released on his execution.
Execution rates have been increasing at “an exponential rate” in Iran. Since Hassan Rouhani took office as president of the clerical regime, the rate of executions has reach its highest in 25 years.
Iran under the rule of the mullahs is the number one record holder for the number of executions per capita.
As Ahmed Shaheed, the U.N. special rapporteur for human rights in Iran, has pointed out, the Iranian regime “continues to execute more individuals per capita than any other country in the world.
The number of executions by the regime is much higher than those officially reported or published in state media.
