The executions carried out after the United Nations said on Friday “the surge in the use of the death penalty that has dampened hopes for human rights reforms under President Hassan Rouhani.”

And also Mohammad Javad Larijani, the Iranian judiciary’s director of human rights headquarters, once again attacked UN Special Rapporteur Ahmad Shaheed.  He said:”Reports of Ahmad Shaheed about the situation of human rights in Iran lacks validity and is worthless for pragmatists in the world and has the minimum methodology. Human Rights that the US and their proxies talk about, is for them and for us is worth nothing. We are the star of progress in Civil Law and Diplomacy in the Middle East. Democracy that is implemented in Iran is the region’s largest democracy.”
