IRAN: Two men paraded in the streets of Pakdasht

NCRI – Iran’s fundamentalist regime on Monday paraded two young men in the streets of Pakdasht, south-east of Tehran, a derogatory act used to discourage social dissent by Iranian youths.

The commander of the regime’s suppressive security forces in Pakdasht said the degrading punishment was ordered by the regime’s judiciary officials.

Authorities frequently parade young men, forced to sit backwards on donkeys, in their local neighborhood so as to embarrass and humiliate them. Previous such barbaric acts of parading youths targeted young men on charges of disregarding nightly curfews or showing disrespect towards security agents.

The human rights situation in Iran has drastically deteriorated since Hassan Rouhani took office as President two years ago.
