The mullahs’ regime executed 10 prisoners including 4 women on July 20 and 21 in the central prison of Birjand. Eight of these prisoners were executed in collective hanging on Sunday, July 20.
Meanwhile, the head of the judiciary in Ghaemshahr sentenced one 32 year old man to two death sentences – one by hanging and one by stoning – plus 15 years imprisonment.
In recent days, the inhumane punishment of flogging has been implemented on at least nine citizens in the cities of Kermanshah, Shiraz and Babolsar. In another brutal action, on July 14 in Majidieh Street in Tehran, agents of the regime extinguished the lightened cigarette of a fellow Christian on his lips and brutally beat him.
The rise in summary executions – 800 recorded executions in the first year of mullah Rouhani’s presidency – and other medieval punishments disclose the mirage of "moderation" and "reform" within the Iranian regime.
