Hang her in front of her daughters!

#Iran/#Ahwaz:
May 11, 2014: Four #men and one #woman were scheduled to be #hanged in the #Rajaishahr_prison of #Karaj. They were all charged with murder and sentenced to qisas (#retribution in kind: an eye for an eye, a life for a life) as this is an “Islamic Republic” as they call it, but it is way far from Islam and Muslims! Anyway, the four men were all pardoned by the families of the victims. The woman who was known as “Behjat” was hanged in the front of her two #daughters’ eyes. Her two daughters were present under the #execution. One of the daughters was #crying and calling for her #mother.

Number of executions for murder charges (qisas) has dramatically raised in Iran. At least 148 of the 687 executions reported by #IHR in 2013 were qisas cases. This number was eight times higher than the number f executions for qisas in 2012. As of May 2014, at least 100 of the 248 implemented #death_sentences in Iran have been based on murder charges (#qisas). How you doing #Rohani?! It was you who was talking about #respecting #Human_Rights in Iran, right?! It was you who was saying and lying over people that the Human Rights situation in Iran is being improved day after day after you came on to lead this republic-as you claim?! Oh my guardian Angel! I feel sorry about the #increasing in #death_penalties, maybe there was a misunderstanding, I don’t know! #Iranian_Hypocrite!!

I wonder if the Iranian people are enjoying their time under the rule of such a dictatorial regime. These are the results of the so called “Islamic (Khomeini) Revolution” which was led by the filthy Ayatollah Ruhollah Musawi Khomeini. The #Khomeini revolution in Iran 1979, which led to the transformation of Iran from a #monarchy under the rule of #Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi to become an “Islamic republic” as they claim!

P.S: For the smart ones whom I got used to deal with, well the photo is for clarification only guys! It doesn’t reflect Behjat’s case! She is not Behjat, she was another women who was executed in Iran as well.

Iran: We don’t execute Juveniles

#Iran/#Ahwaz:
Sure you don’t! U_U

A 15 year old #Afghan #juvenile offender identified as Jannat Mir was among the six Afghan citizens who were executed in the Dastgerd prison of #Isfahan in April. Jannat was convicted of drug-related charges and didn’t have access to lawyer (as usual).

#Iranian_authorities claim that juveniles are not executed in Iran and these stories are from terrorist groups whom are trying to defame the reputation of the country! WTF are you kidding me?! This is the seventh juvenile offender being #executed in Iran in 2014 after the hypocrite Rouhani’s famous speech about respecting Human Rights in Iran!!! Iran leads the world in executing juvenile offenders – at least 20 in 2008, and at least 10 so far in 2009 and more and more in 2010 till 2014.

The juvenile #death_penalty is prohibited in #international_law, and the prohibition is absolute. Both the Convention on the Rights of the Child (#CRC) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (#ICCPR) specifically prohibit #capital_punishment of persons under 18 at the time of the offense. These provisions reflect the reality that #children are different from #adults, and lack the experience, judgment, maturity, and restraint of an adult. Iran ratified the ICCPR in 1975 and the CRC in 1994.
Well, I’ll pretend that Rouhani is a responsible president who respects Human Rights and thus, I call on Iran to abolish the execution of persons who were under age 18 at the time of their offense. I hope he understands this.
