Amid Human Rights Day, 10 more executions in Iran
On Sunday, December 7, four prisoners are reported to have been executed in the Central Prison in the city of Zahedan, capital of the Sistan Baluchestan province in southeastern Iran.
The news of these executions have not been published by the regime.
Reports from Iran also indicate that another seven prisoners have been hanged in the courtyard of Vakilabad Prison in Mashhad (the second largest city of Iran in the north). These seven prisoners were hanged on Wednesday, December 3.
Like the executions in Zahedan, the executions in Mashad were not officially announced by the clerical regime. On November 5, Mohammad Javad Larijani, Secretary of Human Rights Council in Mullah’s Judiciary had deceptively announced: “We are trying to change the law pertaining to drug related death sentences.” However, in the last two weeks fifty people have been executed in various prisons in Iran.
Iran executes more people per capita than any other country in the world.
