NCRI - In the time span of just three days from August 3 to 6, twenty-two prisoners were hanged by the inhumane clerical regime in the cities of Karaj, Shiraz and Chahbahar. These atrocities are being committed on the first anniversary of Hassan Rouhani, the “moderate” president of the clerical regime.

Twelve of these prisoners were executed in the city of Karaj alone on Wednesday, August 6. Eleven prisoners, including one identified as Abbas Khorshidie, were hanged in the central prison of this city.

Reza Fallah a 27-year-old prisoner was also hanged in public on the same day in this city. Before hanging the victim, the henchmen flogged him 100 times as the crowd watched in shock.

Seven prisoners were hanged in two groups in public on August 3 and 6.

Three men, Abdoljabbar Riegie, Othman Hassan Zehie and Abdolkarim Zahoukie, were executed in the central prison of city of Chahbahar on August 4.

Fearing social uprisings, the criminal rulers in Iran conduct these atrocities under the pretext of “implementing God’s decree.” They widely publish shocking photos of the hangings in an attempt to intensify the climate of fear in the country.
