Iran publicly hangs prisoner in western city of Hamedan

Iran executions

The Iranian regime’s judiciary hanged a prisoner in public today in Hamedan, west of Iran, the state-run IRNA news agency reported.

The prisoner identified as Mehdi Cheraghi Far, had been sentenced to on the charge of “waging war against God through armed robbery.”

There was no private plaintiff in his dossier who was accused of armed robbery of a jewelry store along with three other men in 2015.

The first defendant of the case, Bahman Varmazyar was a hairdresser and sports coach who was also involved in the armed robbery in March 2015. The following month he handed himself in to the police and returned everything he stole, expressing regret for his actions.

Following the efforts of Bahman’s family to save their son from execution, the mullahs’ regime falsely reported that his death sentence had been stopped, but he was executed on Wednesday morning April 18 early morning.

The Iranian regime has one of the worst human rights records in the world. Year after year, it holds the record of the number of executions per capita.

According to Amnesty International, at least 253 people were executed in 2018 in Iran, while the number is over 3,500 since 2013, when supposed moderate Hassan Rouhani took power.
