Since Hassan Rouhani has assumed office as the president of the Iranian regime, there has been a rise in human rights violations in Iran. Some 800 have been executed in Iran during the past year.

Hundreds have been subjected to degrading and inhumane punishments such as flogging in public and being paraded in streets. In August a prisoner was lashed in public before being hanged.
