Human Rights: Four hanged in central Iran prison


NCRI – Iran’s fundamentalist regime hanged four people in a prison in Isfahan, central Iran, while two other groups of prisoners have been transferred to solitary confinement in other prisons to face imminent execution.

The four individuals, two of Iranian origin and two of Afghan origin, were hanged on Wednesday in Isfahan’s Dastgerd Prison, which is infamous for the appalling human rights abuses that go on there.

Three other death-row prisoners in the southern city of Bandar Abbas were on Thursday transferred to solitary confinement in preparation for their imminent execution.

They were identified as Yousef Shahnavazi Shahdadi, 25; Kamran Zarei, 47; and Jamal Kasebkar Darandeh, 45.

Their relatives on Friday went to the prison to meet for a final time with their loved ones.

Three other death-row prisoners have been transferred to solitary confinement in Zahedan Prison, south-east Iran, in preparation for their execution.

At least 41 prisoners, including two women, have been executed in Iran, in some cases in public squares, since July 22.

Faced with escalating popular discontent and unable to respond to the rightful demands of the majority of the Iranian people who are living under the poverty line, the religious fascism ruling Iran – dubbed the ‘godfather of ISIS’ by the Iranian people – is ramping up suppression and human rights abuse.
