On Wednesday, September 16, at least 9 prisoners were hanged by the Iranian regime in Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) prison, Karaj and in Sanandaj. 8 of them, including a 22 and a 24-year-old, were collectively hanged in Gohardasht Prison. And Raouf Hosseini was hanged in Sanandaj Prison after suffering 13 years of imprisonment.

The Iranian regime, engulfed in increasing domestic and international crises especially after drinking the chalice of poison of the nuclear deal, is fearful of the uprising of Iran's fed up people and has found no avenue to survive but to ramp up suppression, especially the savage punishment of execution. Just in the 2-year tenure of Rouhani, who the people dub the president of executions, the number of executions has reached 2000.

Any trade with this inhuman regime should be made contingent to the cessation of the cruel punishment of execution.
