Iranian Regime’s Member of Parliament: 5,000 young people of 20 to 30 years old in Iran’s prisons are on death row

The religious fascism ruling Iran, in order to intensify the atmosphere of intimidation and to prevent popular uprising, has resorted to public hangings, and everyday shows horrendous scenes of hanging bodies from the cranes in public.

On Wednesday November 23, the mullahs' henchmen publicly hanged four young people collectively in the Qeshm Island in Hormozgan province.

Hassan Norouzi, a member of the regime’s Parliament in a shocking confession said: “5,000 people aged 20 to 30 years old are on death row. Most of them are first-time drug offenders" (Mehr state run news agency – November 23).

Youssefian, another member of parliament said: “We have executed so many, we execute every day. ... Rajaeeshahr 30, another place 20, another place 10, what was the result? In 1990 when I was the prosecutor in Mazandaran province, a report came from the office of education that when you execute one person, 20 to 30 other students don’t come to school… a lady said in the court … in Iran a whole family is executed, it is not the individual who gets executed.” (Farhag state-run radio November 23).

Any relationship with this medieval regime, which maintains power only through torture and execution, must be contingent upon a halt to executions. Ignoring the appalling record of human rights violations by the clerical regime under any pretext further emboldens Iran's ruling criminals.
