Iran: 14 including 4 women hanged on New Year’s Day

NCRI – The religious dictatorship ruling in Iran has hanged at least 14 prisoners on the New Year’s Day in several prisons in four cities in Iran.

A group of four women were hanged in Shahab prison in the city of Kerman (southern Iran). Two prisoners were hanged in city of Bandar Abbas.

Another group of seven prisoners were hanged in Shahab prison. In Qazvin, a 38-year-old prisoner sent to gallows in Boeen Zahra prison.

Meanwhile, the clerical regime’s henchmen amputated a hand of a 30-year-old man in a prison in the northeastern city of Mashhad.

The United Nations General Assembly last month slammed the violations of human rights by the Iranian regime.

The resolution criticized the Iranian regime’s use of inhuman punishments, including flogging and amputations.

The UN’s 61st resolution also censured the mullahs’ dictatorship ruling Iran for the rise in executions, public executions and execution of juveniles.

In this resolution, the UNGA condemned the Iranian regime for cruel, inhumane and degrading punishments, especially the flogging and amputation of limbs and hands.

The Iranian regime unveiled a terrifying device in 2013 that they use to chop off fingers. The device that looks like something devised for a grisly horror movie operates as a circular saw that guillotines prisoners’ fingers.

Since Hassan Rouhani became president of the clerical regime, over 1,200 have been executed and hundreds more have been subjected to degrading and inhumane punishments such as amputation, flogging in public and being paraded in streets.

The Iranian Resistance has repeatedly condemned the carrying out of medieval punishments and executions by the clerical regime in Iran and has called for referral of the regime’s violations of human rights record to the United Nations Security Council.
