On Saturday, June 7, four prisoners were collectively hanged in the Shahr-e-Kord Prison. At dawn on Sunday, June 1, simultaneously with the execution of PMOI member Gholamreza Khosravi, the anti-human clerical regime secretly hanged eight other prisoners in the Karaj Gohardasht Prison.
On the same day, another prisoner was executed in the prison of Semnan (central Iran).
Mullahs’ regime resort to brutal death penalty, particularly the execution of political prisoners, demonstrates the clerical regime’s fear from spread of the popular protests and is aimed at creating fear and intimidation among the people.
