NCRI - The Iranian regime publically hanged Alireza Mafiha, 20, and Mohammad-Ali Sarvari, 23, accused of Moharebeh(waging war against God) and "corruption on earth", on Sunday morning, January 20, 2013. The two young men had been accused of stealing 150 thousand Tomans (less than 35 Euros) while carrying cold weapons. Even though the plaintiffs in the case had opposed the sentence, the regime hanged the two young prisoners to follow its own objectives in creating an atmosphere of horror, fear, and absolute repression in order to prevent any public expression discontent especially as the regime's sham presidential election is approaching.

According to state-run media, the theft had occurred less than 7 weeks ago on December 2nd, and the two youths were arrested on December 15. That means the entire process leading to executions took only 6 weeks. The so-called court session was presided by regime’s henchman judge Salavati who has a dreadful record of arbitrary executions and must be brought to justice for crimes against humanity.

The first defendant’s father was killed during the war with Iraq and his mother is an underserved working woman; he committed this crime to pay for his mother’s 4 million tomans (1,000 euros) in medical expenses.

Two other defendants in the case who are 21 and 23, were sentenced to 10 years in prison and 5 years of exile; they were both unemployed and belonged to underserved populations.

The criminal executions of the two young men accused of "forceful possession", "waging war against God", and "corruption on earth" are taking place while the mullahs’ regime and its leaders are indeed the ones who have, for three decades, waged a war against the people of Iran and are engaged in the destruction of the country’s economic infrastructure and its young generations.  The mullahs are corrupting the Iranian homeland. They have forced themselves upon each and every Iranian citizen and have turned Iran into a large prison. They have destroyed the country’s human resources and through plundering the enormous wealth of the country. They  have forced the people into poverty. All abnormalities in the country, including poverty, corruption, theft, and drug addictions has no other roots than the mullahs regime in Iran and the only way for solving social problems in Iran passes through overthrowing this regime and establishing democracy in Iran.
