Insider news & Analysis in Iran

To mark the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances on August 30, human rights group Iran Human Rights Monitor released a report about the 1988 massacre, during which 30,000 Iranian political prisoners, mostly members and supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), were forcibly  disappeared and extrajudicially executed.

On Wednesday, August 28, the Iranian regime executed eight prisoners in Raja'i Shahr prison. The prisoners were previously transferred to solitary confinement. Yet the state-run media have not reported this mass execution yet.

Two new casualties have apparently been identified in the Iranian regime’s ongoing crackdown on foreign and dual nationals. And in a development that is unsurprising in light of the recent tensions surrounding mutual tanker seizures by the British Royal Navy and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the latest prosecutions have focused not on the United States but on the United Kingdom.

On Wednesday, the Iranian Regime publicly hanged a man convicted of murdering the Friday prayer leader in Kazeroun, the capital of Fars province, in southern Iran, according to state-run news agency IRNA.

An Iranian Regime appeals court has upheld a 10-year prison sentence for a British Council worker accused of “cultural infiltration”, which Iran thinks is basically espionage.

Nine Haft Tappeh Sugarcane Factory workers have been sentenced to eight months of prison (suspended) and 30 lashes each by the 102nd Branch of the Shush Criminal Court, according to the state-run ILNA news agency.
