Public flogging videotaped in southern Iran city

NCRI - This is a video clip recently smuggled out of Iran which shows a man being flogged in public by the fundamentalist authorities.

The clip was filmed at Kouhpayeh Park in Shiraz, southern Iran.

On May 25, the Iranian regime’s suppressive forces raided a party following a graduation ceremony in Qazvin, west of Tehran, and arrested 35 young men and women. 

On that same day, all of the arrestees were condemned by the judiciary to 99 lashes and the sentences were immediately carried out by “Moral Security Police”

On May 31, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights issued a statement saying: "We condemn the outrageous flogging of up to 35 young men and women in Iran last week, after they were caught holding a graduation party together in Qazvin, north of Tehran."
