Iran hangs 6 more, including another womanPublished by International Liberty on July 30, 2015
Iran 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.
