excution-of3-iranIran hanged five prisoners on Thursday, including a woman, in the south-eastern city of Kerman, and executed another prisoner in the city of Ardebil, north-west Iran.

Three of the executed men in Kerman’s Shahab Prison were identified as Ezzat Sabeki, Meysam Shahraki and Ali Zehi.

Another man was hanged Thursday morning in the central prison of Ardebil, according to the state-run Tasnim news agency.

Three other death-row prisoners in the southern city of Bandar Abbas were transferred to solitary confinement in preparation for their imminent execution.

The three were identified as Yousef Shahnavazi Shahdadi, 25; Kamran Zarei, 47; and Jamal Kasebkar Darandeh, 45.

The regime hanged a 43-year-old mother in a prison in the city of Karaj, north-west of Tehran on Wednesday.

The woman, identified as Pari-Dokht Molai-Far, was hanged in the notorious Qezelhesar Prison. The mother of one had been imprisoned in the infamous Qarchak Prison for

Women in the city of Varamin for the past three years and was transferred to Qezelhesar for execution.

Qarchak Prison, also referred to as ‘Qarchak Death Camp’, was used by the Iranian regime as a place for brutal torture and rape of those arrested during the 2009 anti-regime popular protests. The death of at least four young protesters under torture in Qarchak turned into a scandal for the Iranian regime.

Also on Wednesday (29 July), the mullahs’ regime hanged three men in a public square in Karaj at dawn. The men were not named.

At least 37 prisoners have been executed in Iran in the past nine days, the equivalent of more than four executions per day.

Abolish death penalty in Iran

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
