At least seven women have been hanged in Iran in less than a month
The Iranian regime’s authorities had another woman executed in Dastgerd Prison of Isfahan at dawn on Sunday, December 19, 2021.
The victim was Fatemeh Aslani. She had been serving time in prison for nine years allegedly for murdering her husband.
Mrs. Aslani had pleaded not guilty before the court.
The 129th woman executed since 2013
The state media in Iran have not yet announced this execution as this report is being published. This is the 129th woman executed by the clerical regime since the summer of 2013.
The Iranian regime has executed at least 7 women in less than a month. Thirty men have also been executed in this time span.
The Iranian prison authorities had another woman executed in the Prison of Amol, in northern Iran, on December 14, 2021. Massoumeh Zare’i, 40, had a 21-year-old daughter. She had murdered her husband in self-defense against domestic violence.
The world’s chief executioner of women
Iran holds the world’s top executioner record, with the highest number of citizens executed per capita. It is also the world’s chief executioner of women. An average of 15 women is executed in Iran every year. The executions are grossly unfair.
The actual number of executions, particularly the number of women executed, is much higher. The clerical regime carries out most executions in secret and out of the public eye. No witnesses are present at the time of execution but those who carry them out.
The Iranian regime open-handedly uses the death penalty as a form of punishment. In a discriminatory manner, this punishment is carried out against religious and ethnic minorities, political dissidents, and women.
Many of the women executed by the mullahs’ regime are themselves victims of domestic violence against women and have acted in self-defense.
According to Amnesty International, more than two-thirds of the world countries have abolished or halted the death penalty. However, in Iran, the killing machine is taking up speed under Ebrahim Raisi, the notorious henchman of the 1988 massacre, and Gholam Hossein Mohseni Eje’i, another notorious judge involved in the genocide.
