The Iranian Resistance calls to save four prisoners

The Iranian Resistance calls to save four prisoners on death row in Bandar Abbas

The Iranian Resistance calls for urgent action to save four prisoners, who have been transferred on Wednesday morning, April 9, from Bandar Abbas prison to solitary cells for the implementation of their death penalties.

Ahmad Rahimi and Omid Shekari were both in the youth ward. Ahmad Rahim, 20, was less than 17 when arrested.

The third prisoner Zargham is 30 years old. There is no information available on the fourth prisoner who is about to be executed.

Similarly, between February 26 and March 4, four prisoners who were minors when arrested were hanged. On Wednesday April 9, the head of the regime’s judiciary Mullah Larijani, referring to the recent resolution of the European Parliament, in a sophistical lie stated that the European Parliament’s claim of execution of people under 18 was a sheer lie. The fact is that the religious fascism ruling Iran arrests minors and executes them once they reach 18.

Similarly, Javad Larijani, the head of the so-called human rights body of the mullahs’ judiciary, said on April 10: “The problem is that the West does not understand that Qisas is different from execution. We are not ashamed of stoning or any of the Islamic decrees... no one has the right to tell a judge to avert some sentences because the United Nations gets disappointed… we should firmly and seriously defend the stoning sentence”.

Unabated executions in cities across the country, particularly the escalating trend of execution of the youth during Rouhani’s office, are to intensify the atmosphere of intimidation and to prevent the uprising of the fed up masses of Iran.
