The letter below was received by Lisa Brown, mother of Christopher Vialva, who was executed by the federal government in September 2020 . Lisa was present and witnessed the execution. Sure, this is probably a part of the protocol, but its lack of recognition that she was there, and the very idea that they care one bit if anyone has questions or concerns, is just one more inconsiderate and insensitive jab at the families of the condemned...

Iran: Six prisoners secretly hanged

NCRI – The Iranian regime has secretly hanged at least six prisoners last week in three cities, according to reports received from Iran.

A group of four prisoners were hanged in southern city of Bandar-abbas on Tuesday (October 7, 2014), a report said.

Another prisoner was executed in the main prison in western city of Marivan on Thursday (October 9, 2014).

A man identified as Mohammad Reza Mazlomi, 28, from the southern city of Bam was hanged in the city’s prison after more than five years imprisonment.

Iran under the rule of the clerical dictatorship has the highest number of executions per capita in the world.

Since Hassan Rouhani has become the president of the regime over 1000 prisoners have been executed whilst the news on the execution of many prisoners never gets out.

At least 27 women and 12 prisoners who were juveniles at the time of their arrest, together with 20 political prisoners, are amongst those executed with 57 of these executions carried out in public. During this period, a number of prisoners were killed under torture.

In a message on the occasion of the World Day Against the Death Penalty (October 10, 2014), Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, stated on Friday that the religious dictatorship ruling Iran is a government of executions based on its history, ideology, laws and daily policies.

The head of policy and government affairs at Amnesty International said recently “Iran is a serial human rights offender” adding ”President Rouhani has attempted to cast himself as a mild-mannered reformist figure, but the brutal reality is that Iran is hanging an average of two prisoners a day, the vast majority after unfair trials.”
