Iran Criminal Jurist, Abolfazl Bahrampur calls for cutting hands and feet of Iranian protesters.
On November 29, 2019, Abolfazl Bahrampur, an Iranian regime-linked jurist, attend an interview with the state-run TV channel one. He bluntly called authorities to employ inhuman punishments against detained protesters in the deterrence of upcoming uprisings. “They [protesters] should be tortured, crucified, or hanged to death. Their hands and feet should be cut in the opposite direction. We won’t face any problem with the next round of protests in the future if one of these sentences was implemented [and youths never dare to protest]. “These sentences should be publicly done where they [protested]. [Protesters] should be executed or punished. “Later, they should be chopped in a disastrous state. Their right hand and left foot; for instance, four fingers of the right hand and the toes of the left foot should be cut. Then they should be released in this state in the society [till the people be terrified]. Or they should be exiled from the country—not a place such as Shiraz with a nice climate. They should be exiled in the middle of a sea with a scraped ship to spend their lives there to die. This is ‘exile.’ “Additionally, I would like to criticize some of our friends and partners. Anyway, God preserves Mr. Raisi, the head of the Judiciary System who led thousands of political prisoners to gallows in the summer of 1988. “It is wrong if we believe that they are some youths who became excited. No, [it shouldn’t be justified] if they became excited why not for the establishment and the martyrs? A couple days ago, these [protesters], who were advised, would kill us! [We shouldn’t show mercy].”
