Live broadcast today at 2.30pm (Paris time) - International gathering in Paris 
World Day Against the Death Penalty, Surge of executions in Iran during Rouhani's presidency and need for urgent action  


This morning, Tuesday, April 22, the anti-human clerical regime collectively hanged five prisoners in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj City. These prisoners had been transferred to solitary confinement the day before.

This anti-human crime, concurrent with public abhorrence and loath for the barbaric raid on the political prisoners in Evin Prison, is to generate horror and fear in the society and the prisons throughout the country.

While the number of collective and arbitrary executions since Hassan Rouhani has assumed office is over 700, last week, this deceitful mullah demagogically described these anti-human and anti-Islamic executions as “God’s commandment” or the “law of parliament that belongs to the people”.

The families of the prisoners who were executed today, joined a gathering in front of mullahs’ Presidential Office by families of political prisoners and a number of residents of Tehran. Families of the executed prisoners held placards that read: “Why execute?” This gathering was held in protest to the April 17 barbaric raid by suppressive forces on the political prisoners of Ward 350 of Evin Prison.

This barbaric attack by mullahs’ regime against the political prisoners in Ward 350 of Evin Prison aimed to crush the resistance of the prisoners and to intensify the atmosphere of terror in the society,but it raised a wave of abhorrence amongst the people.
