NCRI - The mullahs’ regime is preparing itself for more criminal and mass executions. In Zabol Central Prison, southeast Iran, 30 prisoners are said to be on death row with execution rulings confirmed by the regime’s supreme court, reports indicate. Most of these prisoners are under the age of 40 and two were juveniles during their alleged crime. 80% of the inmates in Zabol Central Prison are Sunni.

Hygiene and food conditions in this prison are very poor and authorities are known to treat the prisoners very harshly. Zabol is a city in Sistan & Baluchistan Province, considered one of the poorest cities of Iran. Zabol Central Prison is located in the southeast portion of the city and has hundreds of inmates. Many reports regarding authorities treating the prisoners very harshly, continuous water cut-offs, dense population in the prison, lack of air ventilation inside the wards, and also very little food that lacks any quality.
