Iran | Man Executed In Public For Spreading "Corruption and Prostitution”

An Iranian prosecutor has announced the public execution of a man convicted of spreading "corruption and prostitution,” according to local media.

Mahmoud Nemati, the public and revolutionary prosecutor of the north-western city of Maragheh, said on May 25 that the man engaged in "illicit relationships with women and girls, documenting their activities through filmed material," Fars news agency reported.

The man, identified as Amir Mahdi, was apprehended in 2016, the prosecutor said, and the Maragheh Revolutionary Court sentenced him to death on charges of "corruption on Earth," a sentence that was later upheld by the Supreme Court.

Human rights activists said at least seven people were executed across the country on May 25 on drug and murder-related charges. 

The total number of executions in the past month has now surpassed 110.

Rights groups say the Islamic Republic has escalated executions in recent weeks to instill fear in society following months-long nationwide protests sparked by the September death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini while in police custody.
