Nine prisoners on death row, three verdicts for hand amputation
The mullahs' regime's henchmen sent 10 inmates to the gallows in Qum and Zabol on February 13. One of them was executed while his appeal had been sent to the regime's judiciary. Also, three other prisoners, 29 and 30 years old, were executed in Jiroft and Mashhad prisons on February 11 and 12.
The inhumane mullahs’ regime has intensified pressure and torture on political prisoners in Gohardasht Prison of Karaj, west of Tehran. From Saturday, February 4, with heavy snow and temperatures dropping below zero, prisoners are facing extreme conditions due to the lack of adequate heating systems. Many have become very ill considering a shortage of supplies needed to remain warm. Old and ill prisoners are enduring additional hardship in such conditions.
The criminal judiciary of the clerical regime in the Lorestan province sentenced a man and a woman to barbaric punishment of stoning (Kashkan state website, February 4, 2017). In another incident,Yoiusef Parvaneh, a 70 year old prisoner, has been transferred from Karaj Ghezel Hessar prison to Orumiyeh Central prison for carrying out the inhumane amputation of his fingers. His alleged charge is theft in 2009. Since the plaintiff in the case is a criminal revolutionary guard, the regime’s judiciary ignored the appeal of this prisoner and intends to carry out the sentence.

On January 11, the inhumane mullahs’ regime executed a prisoner in Urmia Prison, northwest Iran. The day before another prisoner was sent to the gallows in Maraghe Prison, northwest Iran.
