Iran Human Rights, November 27, 2014: Three prisoners were hanged publicly in the cities of Mashhad and Joghatai today, reported the Iranian state media. According to the state run Iranian news agency Fars the prisoner who was hanged in Joghatai (a twon near Mashhad) was identified as “M. Gh.” (20 year old), originally sentenced to death for murder (Qesas- retribution) and for immoral acts. The prisoner was later pardoned by the family of the murder victim, but he was executed for “immoral acts”. The report added that “M. Gh”. has sent request of pardon for immoral acts but his request was not granted by the Province Commission. There are no further specifications of what “immoral acts” the prisoner was sentenced to death for.

Two other prisoners identified as “Ali M.” and “Ali Gh.” were hanged in Mashhad at 9.15 AM this morning, reported Asr-e-Iran news site. The prisoners were charged with “offences like theft, murder, disruption of order and spreading fear among the people” said the report.

Iran Human Rights (IHR) strongly condemns the new execution wave in Iran. Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, the spokesperson of IHR said: “The international community must react to the wave of the executions in Iran. Besides being barbaric and inhumane, the charges used by the Iranian authorities are often vague and many of the executions are arbitrary”.
