NCRI – The Iranian regime’s henchmen hanged a juvenile offender who allegedly had committed a crime four years ago when he was 14.

The victim, Fardin Jaffarian was hanged early morning on Saturday, October 18, in the city’s main prison.

Since Hassan Rouhani has become the president of the regime over 1000 prisoners have been executed including many juvenile offenders.

In a message on the occasion of the World Day Against the Death Penalty (October 10, 2014), Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, stated that the religious dictatorship ruling Iran is a government of executions based on its history, ideology, laws and daily policies.

While noting “an alarming increase in the number of executions in relation to the already-high rates of previous years” Dr. Ahmed Shaheed, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, said in his latest report: “The human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran remains of concern.” “Various laws, policies and institutional practices continue to undermine the conditions needed for the realization of the fundamental rights guaranteed by international and national law.”

Rights groups and regional analysts say Iran’s record may be worsening in the backdrop of potential detente with the West,” an article published Wednesday in The Washington Times reported.

An advance copy of a book-length report on the violation human rights in Iran titled “Behind Rouhani’s Smile” provided to The Washington Times by the National Council of Resistance of Iran notes more than a dozen cases of juvenile offenders have been hanged during past year.
