NCRI - The mullahs’ regime hanged 10 prisoners, including four women, in the central prison of city of Birjand on July 20 and 21. Eight of them were executed in a collective hanging on Sunday night, July 20.

Meanwhile, regime’s chief justice of city of Qaemshahr reported of a sentence against a 32-year-old that is to be executed twice, once by hanging and once by stoning,in addition to 15 years imprisonment.

These days, the anti-human punishment of flogging has been carried out in at least nine cases in the cities of Kermanshah, Shiraz and Babolsar. In yet another brutal act, on July 14, in Majidieh Street in Tehran, a Christian had his cigarette put out on his lips and was savagely beaten by mullahs’ regime agents.

The growing trend of arbitrary executions; 800 registered executions in the first year of Mullah Rouhani’s Presidency, as well as other medieval punishments, betray the mirage of “moderation” in the mullahs’ regime. This is a regime that would quickly crumble if it ends executions, suppression and massacre.
