Tag: Executions in Iran

Since grabbing power in 1979, mullahs’ regime resorted to crackdown and executions in Iran in a desperate attempt to create a climate of fear to keep a lid on dissent and silence thousands of political dissidents and ordinary Iranians who dared challenge its rule.
Activists say executions in Iran are aimed at intimidating protesters and the regime knows that the moment it stops its systematic use of execution, torture and suppression, it will collapse at the hands Iranian people.
In the summer of 1988, the clerical regime ruling in Iran secretly executed several thousands of political prisoners.
Thirty-two years after this crime against humanity, many families of the victims are still unaware about the fate and burial place of their loved ones. The 1988 massacre of political prisoners, mostly members, supporters and sympathizers of the Iranian opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) was an unprecedented crime against humanity that that continues to this day.
The Iranian regime has the highest rate of executions per capita in the world. It also open-handedly uses the death penalty as a form of punishment. In many cases, the religious and ethnic minorities, political dissidents, and women are targets of the death penalty in a discriminatory manner.
