Iran: Fingers of Two Jailed Brothers Amputated for Theft

Iranian regime prison authorities amputated the fingers of two jailed brothers by the names of Faramarz and Majid Bigham on charges of theft. These hideous measures were carried out in Urmia Central Prison in northwest Iran after they served time behind bars for four and a half years. Prison authorities also forced dozens of other inmates with similar charges to watch the shocking scene to send a message to all.

The inhumane mullahs’ regime is implementing such vicious punishments for theft when huge cases of theft by Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and other senior regime officials, including judiciary chief Sadegh Larijani, are being unveiled. Larijani himself is in charge of issuing such horrific verdicts. The exposure of 63 bank accounts affiliated to Sadegh Larijani, with sums totaling over $650 million and a monthly profit of over $6.5 million, is only one such case. The total amount in these accounts is the sum that the regime’s judiciary has extorted from prisoners and their families under the pretext of bails.

“They have raised the issue of some bank accounts and they say [the judiciary chief] is filling his account with government money… in previous terms of the judiciary chief, assets of this branch would be transferred to an account under the name of the judiciary branch, with permission from the leader… this has not been the case only under my watch, it has also been an issue in previous terms, all under the leader’s permission,” Larijani admitted as this huge controversy continues to escalate.

All revenues of the huge financial empire known as the “Setad Ejraiye Farmane Hazrate Emam” – Headquarters for Executing the Order of the Imam, under Khamenei’s personal control and its wealth valued at over $95 billion, has been accumulated by confiscating the property of dissidents, including families of members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and plundering the Iranian people’s wealth.
