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 | Execution of a young woman in the Prison of Ardabil

Execution of a young woman in the Prison of Ardabil, northwestern Iran, marks the execution of the 113th woman during Rouhani’s tenure.

The unidentified young woman, 23, was executed at dawn on Monday, February 8, 2021. She had been imprisoned since 5 years ago.

There are 50 death-row inmates in the Prison of Ardabil.

The authorities of the Central Prison of Sanandaj in western Iran hanged Zeinab Khodamoradi on December 27, 2020.

World’s top executioner of women


Iran holds the record of the world’s top executioner with the highest number of citizens executed per capita. It is also the world’s top executioner of women. The executions are grossly unfair.

More than 4300 people have been executed in Iran during Rouhani’s 7-year tenure. 

They include 113 women.

At least 18 executions were carried out in the past 2 weeks, alone.

The actual number of executions and particularly the execution of women is much higher. 

The clerical regime carries out most executions in secret and out of the public eye. 

No witnesses are present at the time of execution but those who carry them out.

Iran also holds the world’s record of top. These executions are cruelly unjust.

The NCRI Women’s Committee formerly noted that many women convicted of murder in Iran are victims of domestic violence. They have committed murder in self-defense.

The NCRI Women’s Committee has published a list of the women executed during Rouhani’s tenure. 

The substantiated information is based on news and information published in the state-run media in Iran and other reliable sources inside Iran.

The Iranian Resistance calls for the abolishment of the death penalty in Iran.
