Iran executed 18 prisoners from the 22nd to the 29th of November. Ten of these hangings were carried out in Gohardasht Prison of Karaj, west of Tehran, including the mass execution of nine prisoners on Wednesday, November 29th. Six prisoners were executed in Tabriz Central Prison on November 22nd and the 26th. Two prisoners were hanged in the prisons of Babol (northern Iran) and Qaen (eastern Iran) on November 28th.
Continuous executions by the mullahs’ regime, coinciding with a visit by the European Parliament Delegation for Relations with Iran to Tehran, proves the fact that moderation is nothing but an illusion and deception in the religious fascism ruling Iran. The murderers ruling Iran, unable to confront increasing protest movements across the country, cannot afford to stop executions, torture and lashing for even a few days.
The Iranian people, no longer willing to tolerate this regime, abhor any aid provided to the repressive and corrupt mullahs’ regime. They also condemn despicable economic deals with a regime that plunders this nation and spills their blood.
Visits by foreign delegations to Iran under any excuse and/or pretext only encourage the criminal mullahs to continue and expand their crackdown, executions and harsh security measures. Any relations with this regime must hinge on improving Iran’s human rights situation, especially halting all executions.
