Furthermore, the Iranian regime continues to issue death sentences. On April 28, three inmates were sentenced to death in the city of Khomein.
In a heinous and inhumane act, three inmates accused of robbery and drug related charges were paraded in the main streets of the city of Mehran in Kermanshah province.
The intensifying suppression and increase in death penalty is being carried out in order to heighten the atmosphere of intimidation in the society.
However the move is an indication of the regime’s fear of popular protests on the eve of sham elections particularly as the regime’s leaders infighting has intensified to an unprecedented level.
