Hand amputation in Shirza, Iran, January 24, 2013NCRI - The inhuman mullahs’ regime amputated the hand of a 29-year-old man in public in Shiraz on Thursday. He was charged with stealing. According to the regime's Judiciary in Fars province, in addition to hand amputation, he was condemned to 3 years in prison and 99 lashes.  A number of other prisoners in Shiraz have also been condemned to punishments such as amputation, jail and lashes.

Henchman Ali Alqasi, the Shiraz prosecutor, described the use of hand amputation as a “serious warning” to all who “cause insecurity”.  He emphasized: “Decisiveness and intolerance are part of the Judiciary’s agenda."

Hand amputation and the execution of young prisoners charged with stealing is taking place while the mullahs’ regime annihilates the country’s human assets and wealth, and while spending ever more on nuclear weapons, terrorism and the export of fundamentalism, and filling the bank accounts of the regime leaders.
