ran: Execution of juveniles and women, mullahs’ desperate attempt to confront popular uprising
Any deal with the Iranian regime should be conditioned upon stopping executions and release of protesters arrested during the uprising
By continuing executions, especially the execution of juveniles and women, and intensifying the atmosphere of fear and intimidation, the mullahs' anti-human regime is striving in vain to confront the popular uprising of the people who are fed up and have shaken the pillars of the mullahs’ rule.
On January 30, Ali Kazemi, a 22-year-old juvenile, who was 15 when arrested, was hanged in the central prison of Bushehr (southern Iran). Earlier, the regime's authorities had pledged that they would not execute him. Three weeks earlier, Amir Hossein Jafarpour, who was 16 at the time of committing crime, was executed in Gohardasht Prison.
Also on January 30, a young female prisoner was executed in Noshahr prison (northern Iran) after four years of imprisonment.
Two days earlier, on January 28, two prisoners were executed in the central prison of Orumieh. In the same prison, Hassan Bakoui was tormented to death in prison for being deprived of medical treatment and hospitalization.
Iranian Resistance calls on all the people, especially brave Iranian youths, to protest against these brutal executions and support the families of the victims. It also urges the international community and all international human rights organizations to strongly condemn arbitrary executions, especially the execution of juveniles. Opening fire at protesters, mass arrests, arbitrary torture and executions are a clear indication of the crime against humanity. Any interactions with the mullahs’ anti-human regime should be conditioned on improving the human rights situation, in particular the suspension of executions, and the release of arrested protesters. Dealing with such a regime is fueling its torture and killing machine.
