In an atrocious act, the clerical regime on Monday executed 11 prisoners in the city of Zahedan, the capital of southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan. The provincial mullahs’ judiciary chief announced that the victims were accused of “Waging war on God,” and “spreading corruption on earth”, and challenging the regime’s establishment. He emphasized that the regime’s “judiciary will not hesitate in implementing the sentences accurately and swiftly”.
A woman was also executed in Qazvin Prison.
Setting up gallows in prisons across Iran, is a sign of the regime’s impotence in confronting people’s protests and the intensifying antipathy towards the entire clerical rule. The executions are aimed at creating atmosphere of fear in the society, as the clerical regime’s judiciary openly declares that the executions are carried out to “increase security”.
The Iranian Resistance condemns such atrocious executions and calls on the international community and human rights organizations, especially the United Nations Secretary General, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and UN Rapporteur on arbitrary detention and executions to condemn the dreadful conditions of human rights in Iran, and take urgent actions to stop the brutal punishment of execution.
