Iran, June 18, 2018 - The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the execution of Mohammad Yavar Salas and calls for the effective action by the international community and human rights advocates against this arbitrary execution and the growing violation of human rights by the religious fascism ruling Iran.
Mohammad Yavar Salas, 51, from the Gonabadi Dervishes, was arrested during the February 2018 protests on Golestan Avenue. The mullahs’ regime’s judiciary sentenced him to execution in an arbitrary process, even in violation of its own laws. He repeatedly said that under torture and pressure he had to accept allegations that he had no role in them.
Despite providing credible evidence about the falsity of alleged charges against Mohammad Salas, the mullahs' judiciary dismissed his appeal and refused to reinstate the trial.
Being engulfed with growing irremediable domestic and international crises and popular uprisings, the mullahs’ regime has stepped up brutal suppression and crimes against the Iranian people.
The reign of terror and crime in Iran, which is a disgrace for the contemporary humanity, must be rejected from the family of nations. All the perpetrators of killing of the Iranian people should be subject to the most severe sanctions and penalties, and should be held accountable before international tribunals.
