Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei last year decided to contract his government and started slowly to eliminate the figures of the so-called reformist faction in the hope of strengthening its government and being able to face upcoming protests and as well external crises. The final bullet of this decision was the appointment of Ebrahim Raisi as the regime’s president, not least because the overwhelming majority of the people of Iran boycotted the presidential election.
Along with this contraction, Khamenei appointed the infamous and cruel Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Eje’I as the chief of the judiciary, replacing Ebrahim Raisi. It seems that the execution machine of this regime has started its work again so that the regime executed 12 persons last week.
Having a disastrous case in human rights, this regime is making any negotiation and appeasement illicit.
