NCRI - The inhumane mullahs’ regime on Tuesday, August 20, executed an 18-year old youth after he had already endured six years in Diesel Abad Prison in the city of Kermanshah, western Iran.
Identified as Arman Mohammadi, he was first arrested and jailed at the age of 12 charged with premeditated murder. This is while according to the regime’s own medieval laws the legal age for boys is stated as 15.
On August 20 and 21 two prisoners were hanged in public in the cities of Tabriz and Jahrom (state-run Mehr and Fars news agencies).
Mahmoud Hashemi, head of judiciary in the city of Hendijan, annonced the execution of an inmate in public in the city on August 22.
On the morning of Sunday, August 18, in yet another vicious and unprecedented measure, three inmates were hanged in public in three different locations in the city of Karaj, west of Tehran. In order to create a climate of fear, state-run media outlets have published scenes of these vicious crimes on a widespread scale.
Therefore, the number of those executed following the regime’s sham presidential election has reached at least 107 counts, of which many were under the age of 18 at the time of their alleged crime, and a number of others were women.
On August 19 Mohseni Ejei, spokesman of the regime’s judiciary, made threats in his remarks and said, “There will be a firm approach towards those creating insecurity in the society.”
