At least 4,000 individuals have been executed during the Rouhani term in office. The actual number of executions certainly surpasses 4,000, because most executions in Iran are carried out secretly. Iran’s regime is holding the record of executions per capita.
According to Javaid Rehman, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, so far in 2019, “conservative estimates indicate that at least 173 executions have been carried out.”
Rehman also said at the U.N. General Assembly’s human rights committee that he has “credible information” there are at least 90 child offenders currently on death row in Iran.
“Iran executed seven child offenders last year and two so far this year even though human rights law prohibits the death penalty for anyone under age 18,” Rehman added.
Rehman also expressed deep concern at the overall use of the death penalty in Iran.
