Iran: Mass Execution of 12 Prisoners

Iran: Mass Execution of 12 Prisoners

Khamenei, the Revolutionary Guards and repressive organs are responsible for distributing drugs inside the country and exporting it abroad

On December 6, the brutal regime of Velayat-e-Faqih (Supreme Leader) in another inhuman crime executed 12 prisoners in Kerman Prison on the pretext of drug trafficking. This is while the source of drug trafficking is in the hands of Khamenei, the Revolutionary Guards and other repressive organs. They obtain billions of dollars for the cost of warfare and export of terrorism in this way.

Rouhani acknowledged two weeks ago, "When it comes to drugs, there is dirty money when there is dirty money, there is money laundering, in Afghanistan, in Iran, in Turkey, in Europe ..." (State television - November 21, 2018). Rouhani's Interior Minister Rahmani Fazli had previously said in a shocking confession: "The annual flow of money from drugs is 20 trillion tomans (~ $4 billion – official rate), which is equivalent to two-third of the country's development budget. Dirty money from drug trafficking penetrates all sectors. In the field of politics, elections and the transfer of political power in the country ".

By distributing narcotics, the regime's leaders on the one hand make the young people victims of this devastating calamity in unprecedented numbers, and on the other hand, by executing them on the pretext of drug trafficking, exacerbate the atmosphere of fear and terror in order to prevent the spread of popular uprising. According to Garmaby, a member of the regime's parliament, "The age of drug addiction has become very low in our country and (drug) is easily accessible to everyone.

You can buy it from any kiosk at the intersections." (Parliament website, July 29. 2018). According to the Deputy Minister of Sports and Youth, "Among the 23 million young people in our country, 3 million are addicted" (State Television - June 12, 2015).

The head of the so-called state anti-narcotics organization announced the number of drug addicts as four million and said that 21 percent of the 13 million workers are drug addicts (ISNA news agency – October 15, 2018), and former regime's vice president for the women's affairs said that 10 percent of drug addicts are women (ISNA - June 6, 2018). The real number of people with addiction is much higher.

On the other hand, the mullahs regime has a very active role in trafficking narcotics to various countries: discovering a cargo of 270 tons of heroin in a ship in the port of Genoa in Italy, originating from the Bandar Abbas in Iran (Reuters - Nov. 8, 2018); discovery of 712 kg of heroin in Iranian trucks arriving in the European Union from Turkey (Breitbart - September 30, 2018); discovering 45 kg of heroin embedded in the regime's export carpets for several European countries at the Leipzig Airport in Germany (German media, May 12, 2018); discovering 150 kg of heroin worth millions of euros in two Iranian trucks, according to Federal Prosecutor's Office of Germany trucks came from Iran through Turkey to Germany and were supposed to distribute drugs in European countries (Deutsche Welle – January 19, 2017); discovering 200 kg of heroin from an Iranian truck by Bulgaria Customs agents (News media - July 7, 2016); discovering 330 kilograms heroin in an Iranian truck (News media - Oct. 10, 2014) and ... are among them.

The Basra Provincial Police Commander recently said "the source of 80 percent of the narcotics in the province," was Iran and added: "Today, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps obtains the necessary currency through the sale of narcotics and has turned Iraq to the drug transfer centre for different regions of the world. The Iraqi people and knowledgeable people are aware that drug trafficking in Iraq is under the control of the Iranian regime and is under the control of the Revolutionary Guards and supported by the militants of Hashd al-Sha'bi "(Sky News, November 19, 2018).
