NCRI – The Iranian regime lashed a man in public in town of Tokab in Western Azerbaijan province of Iran.
The young man named Hussein Khosravi was lashed 80 times in public by the Iranian regime’s torturers.
Degrading punishments are systematically used in Iran by the State Security Forces in order to embarrass and humiliate the youth in their neighborhood. The lashing in public in Tokab is not the first such degrading punishment being carried out in public since June election.
Also since the sham presidential elections close to 350 have been executed in Iran, many hanged in public. The victims included women and minors.
Hassan Rouhani’s government has turned down requests by the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Iran, to visit the country.
