Iran: Kurdish political prisoner hanged

NCRI – The Iranian regime’s henchmen hanged a Kurdish political prisoner at midnight on Friday in a prison in the western city of Orumieh.

Mr Habibollah Golparipour, 29, had been transferred to an unknown location since Friday morning.

Golparipour had been arrested in 2009 in the city of Mahabad. He had been accused of membership in a Kurdish group and “acting against the national security” of the Iranian regime.

The number of those executed since the beginning of 2013 has reached to over 490. Over 250 including at least 13 women, executed after regime’s sham presidential election and Hassan Rouhani taking office.
