An Iranian juvenile offender along with his mother and three other prisoners were hanged on Saturday (August 9) in a prison in the south-eastern city of Zahedan. 20-year-old Osman Dahmardeh was 17 at the time of his arrest.

The reports received identified the other three men executed as Rasoulbakhsh Delshadi, 28, Ali Basham Narouee, 32, and Kamran Bameri, 35.

All five victims were part of a group of six who were transferred to solitary confinement in the quarantine section of the main prison in Zahedan last Friday.

At the time of the execution, the henchmen refrained from executing the sixth prisoner, Hossein Mishkar, after putting the noose around his neck.

This practice is frequently used in the Iranian regime’s prisons to psychologically torture the prisoners.

The execution of a mother and son together is one of the most heinous crimes committed in the past 35 years by the criminals ruling Iran.

The silence of the world community, especially of western countries regarding these brutalities under the excuse of having nuclear talks with the Iranian regime, does nothing but help in the suppression of the Iranian people.

During the last six days alone, which have coincided with the first anniversary of Hassan Rouhani taking office as the regime’s president, 36 people have been executed, of which 10 executions were carried out in public.

Yesterday, August 8, Mrs Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, once again called on the international community to refer the dossier of human rights violations by the religious dictatorship ruling Iran to the UN Security Council and stressed that bringing the regime leaders to justice was a just demand of the Iranian people.
