Iran: 13 Executions in One Day

Iran: 13 Executions in One Day

Six inmates died in Bandar Abbas prison due to dire prison conditions

The henchmen of the clerical regime hanged 13 prisoners on Sunday October 19, 2014 in Ghezel-Hessar Karaj Prison, Tabriz Central Prison and Rasht Central Prison.

Fardin Jaafarian, 18, was hanged in Tabriz prison. He was 14 years old at the time of the arrest and alleged offense. This criminal execution seriously violates many of international conventions including the convention on the rights of children.

Eight inmates in Ghezel-Hessar prison and four in Rasht prison were hanged collectively.

Meanwhile, at least six people of those arrested between October 12 and 17 in Bandar Abbas streets and were imprisoned in Camp Jabal-Bor in Bissim area of the city, lost their lives due to the excruciating conditions of this death camp and inhumane pressures by henchmen. The mass arrests were carried out under the pretext of the fight against drugs.

Also since October 18, five death row prisoners in Urumyeh Central Prison have been transferred to solitary confinement waiting to be executed.

Mullah Larijani, head of the mullah’s Judiciary, about the reports of international bodies on the violation of human rights in Iran, said: “The more human rights attacks we get, the more we become determined to carry out sentences.” (IRGC affiliated Reporters Club site – October, 15, 2014)

Javad Larijani, the head of so-called human rights committee of the regime’s Judiciary, in an interview with state TV called the record of Ahmed Shaheed, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, as disgraceful and asked “why a Special Rapporteur has been appointed for Iran while Iran is the most democratic country in the region! (Tabnak website, October 17, 2014)

The Iranian Resistance once again emphasizes that closing the eyes on the growing trend of executions in Iran by the international community only emboldens the criminals ruling Iran. The only way to deal with this brutality is to adopt a firm policy against the religious fascism ruling Iran and referral of the dossier of the regime’s human rights abuses to the UN Security Council.
