On the day before, three prisoners in Shiraz and two young brothers in Abadan from Arab minority were hanged in the Sepidar prison of Ahvaz.

Meanwhile, Bahram Ghasemi, the regime’s foreign ministry spokesman, described the recent European Parliament resolution about Iran as being “inaccurate” and based on “false information and reports”. He called repression and killing of the Iranian people as an internal issue and said, “We have not and will not allow any individual or country to speak or judge about our internal issues.” (state-run News Network, October 24)
The Iranian Resistance calls all the Iranian people and particularly the brave youths to protest against the brutal death penalty. It reiterates any dealing with the mullahs’ regime should be contingent upon improvement of human rights situation, especially halt of executions.
