NCRI- Following the wave of executions in different cities in Iran, the anti-human clerical regime sent another 30 prisoners to the gallows from April 22 to April 26. 

Nine prisoners were collectively hanged on April 22 in Vakil Abad prison in Shiraz. 

On April 23, sixteen other prisoners in Bandar Abbas, Kerman and Jiroft were executed. 

On April 25 and 26, three prisoners in Rasht prison and two other prisoners were executed in the cities of Zanjan and Abhar.

As such, the number of executions over two weeks, April 13 to April 26, reaches 115. 

The real number of those executed is much more than this. 

According to some reports in recent weeks, a large number of prisoners have been executed secretly in Arak.

Criminals ruling Iran, surrounded by growing political, social and economic crises, and worried about the consequences of the nuclear negotiations, have resorted to execution, torture and killing of the Iranian people more than any other time in order to create an atmosphere of fear and repression and to prevent the spread of social protests by abusing the silence and inaction of the international community against the brutal and systematic violation of human rights in Iran.
