103 Women Executed in Iran under Rouhani
Iran’s regime has hanged another three women in prison, bringing to 103 the number of women executed since Hassan Rouhani took office as President.
The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran on Sunday confirmed the identities of the three women executed in early and mid-December. All three women were hanged in the notorious Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison in Karaj.
The NCRI Women’s Committee identified these three women as Eshrat Nazari, Fatemeh Ghezel Safarlou, 26, and Nargess o-Sadat Tabaii, 50.

According to the NCRI Women’s Committee: “The news of the executions of only two of these women has been announced by the Iranian state media. Iran holds the world’s record of top executioner of women.”
Due to the Iranian regime’s failure in categorizing deliberate murders according to their degrees, regardless of their motives, anyone committing murder is sentenced to death. Many of the women convicted of murder in Iran are victims of violence against women and have committed murder in self-defense.
