Occupied Ahwaz / Iran:
Today morning, two prisoners have been hanged on charges of murder and drug trafficking in Kermanshah Dizel Abad prison and Kashan. And at least three other prisoners from Kerman have been executed on charges relating to possessing 3 kg of Hash in Kashan prison yesterday morning!
Also, more than Forty prisoners have been executed during last week. The new execution flood was expected to take place after Ramadan (Holy month in Islam), however the Iranian judiciary has been executing prisoners during Ramadan too, giving no consideration to the holy month and Muslims in general. And as an example for what happened, the Iranian judiciary ruled on the execution of three Ahwazi prisoners who were hanged in Urmiye prison during Ramadan. Their charges were the normal ones which we got used to ” Corruption in earth Activities” and “Anti-God Actions”!
Again and again I insist on shedding the light on these two stupid charges and ask the Iranian judiciary; why only Ahwazis are convicted of such charges?! Is it because they are Arabs or Sunni Muslims and that Iran’s official religion is Shi’ism? Is it because they are asking for the retrieval of their occupied land and protesting against their oppressors? Why this Iranian hate and grudge against the indigenous people of Al Ahwaz?!
Among the countries with the most confirmed executions, Iran possess the second place. Iran carry out the highest recorded number of executions right after China. Many reports confirm that the executions committed by the Iranian Government target persons aged under 18 at the time of their alleged crime, and most of the time the executions are carried out in public.
However, when comparing the population of the two countries (Iran and China), Iran get the highest percentage of execution in the world, thus Iran beat China! I wonder where the International Community at regarding this humanitarian blasphemy and this Iranian impunity. Where are the so-called Human Rights organizations from these flagrant breaches of the International law?! Human Rights reports and the condemnation of states will never solve a problem nor stop these illegal executions!
Monitoring Human Rights violations committed by the Iranian Government.
