Report by PMOI/MEK
Iran, June 20, 2019 - The dictatorship regime ruling Iran hanged three prisoners on Wednesday, June 19, in the Central Bandar-Abbas Prison in southern Iran. The names of the victims have not been disclosed.
Less than a week ago, the mullahs’ regime also hanged four other prisoners in Gohardash and Ardebil.
Iran regime remains among the world’s top five executioners, according to a new report by human rights monitor Amnesty International. According to the right groups, Iran is the number one executioner per capita in the world. Tehran is known for having one of the world’s worst human rights violations records.
Human rights monitors have also said Iran could be executing more people in secret and Amnesty has previously reported that the number of death sentences handed down in Iran has risen.
UN human rights bodies have condemned the Iranian regime on 65 occasions.
The reason for those condemnations is the violation of basic human rights (especially of minorities), executions, brutal punishments such as amputation and flogging, and degrading behaviors with prisoners.
These brutal methods started from the days of the regime's coming to power.
Khomeini, 24 August 1979 stressed, "We suppress [the MEK]."
The regime has invented more than 70 methods of torture, including severing hands and feet, gouging eyes, pressing prisoners’ heads with the vise, and rape (especially against women).
Ayatollah Montazeri, Khomeini's heir apparent said on October 9, 1986: “Do you know many were killed under torture by interrogators? Do you know many prisoners were blinded, deafened, paralyzed or suffer chronic pains due to severe torture?”
The regime created cage-like cells, where prisoners were kept in them for as long as 7 months.
The regime executed 120,000 political prisoners, including even 13-year-old teenagers
Ayatollah Montazeri: “Execution of 13- or 14-year-old girls is horrifying.”
Mollahassani, Khomeini's representative in Urmia, said on December 23, 2000: “[Khomeini] said: If the prisoners are even one million, I will order to open fire on them and massacre them in one night."
Under Khomeini's orders, prison guard extracted prisoners' blood before executing them.
In 1988, Khomeini ordered, "Those who insist on their views in support of the MEK are enemies of God and are condemned to death."
Subsequently, the regime executed more than 30,000 prisoners were in less than two months.
The unbelievable scale of executions and brutal tortures in Kahrizak prison in 2009 and arrest of more than 7,000 individuals during the 2017-2018 uprisings (reported by Amnesty Intl) manifest the continuation of these crimes after 40 years.
These crimes will continue until the day of the regime is overthrown. Because it cannot survive without violating human rights.
