Iran-Forth Public Hanging in Arak in less than a week

A 23-year-old man was hanged in public on Wednesday 20th February in the city of Arak.

The execution comes after three other prisoners were hanged in the Central Prison of Arak during this week.

The Iranian regime has also passed the death sentence on six more prisoners in Iranshahr, Sistan and Balouchestan Provinces.

These men were all transferred to solitary confinements on February 17th prior to the executions being carried out. Nine other prisoners being held at Dizel Abad, in Kermanshah, were also sentenced to death on February 17th.

The name of the prisoners has been announced as: Mohsen Jalalvand, Ibrahim Kavoosi, Masoud Yar Ahmadi, Khosro Jalilian, Farhad Mosafer, Mohammad Rahimi, Omid Chaghavand, Reza Almasi and Kianoosh Hatami.

The increase on the public hangings and repression of the political prisoners is a known tactic of the Iranian regime to intimidate the public. Especially since the infightings of different rivals has recently reached to a stage of no return and with the upcoming “presidential elections”, the unpopular Mullahs fear similar uprisings that took place in 1988.

On Tuesday one of regime’s spokesmen, Mehman Parast revealed this fear and said: “We are in a full-time war situation. Our opponent has started a full-time war operation against us. The main scene is the presidential elections coming up next year. All the pressures are going to rise then”. He added: “They are hoping to repeat the 2009 uprising conspiracy again and carryout some measures.”
