Iran: Chief Justice orders expeditious implementation of the death decrees

Fearing a popular uprising, the regime leaders step up social clampdown, executions 

Mullah Sadeq Larijani, the criminal Chief Justice of the Iranian regime, emphasized that it is not the Judiciary's policy to eliminate executions for drug smugglers. He said, "When did we have such an inclination? … This claim that executions were not useful is irrelevant. I urge all prosecutors across the country not to delay the implementation of the verdicts, and carry them out once they are issued. We are not allowed to delay carrying out the verdicts for three years and let the criminals begin praying in prison and then argue that since they pray we should cancel their executions. We cannot do away with executions in general because it undermines the judiciary's deterrence."
