23 women are on death row by stoning
According to documents obtained from within the mullahs’ regime, the Iranian Resistance declared that 183 women in the regime’s prisons were on death row or sentenced to Qisas (death by retribution).
Death by retribution is carried out on persons convicted of murder, regardless of their motives.
During a series of major revelations, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has published extensive information obtained from the clerical regime’s judicial system, including the Prisons Organization.
Death row prisoners
According to the statistics registered by the office of the Prisons Organization, 5,197 people are on death row or sentenced to Qisas (retribution in kind). Of these, 1,366 are sentenced to death, including 39 women. Another 3,831 prisoners, including 144 women, have a sentence of Qisas or retribution in kind.
Sixty death row prisoners were under 18 at the time of the alleged offense in 2020.
The documents also list the names of 51 persons, including 23 women, sentenced to death by stoning and 107 prisoners are sentenced to amputation.
Overcrowded prisons and detention centers
Other documents obtained from the Prisons Organization indicate that 423,210 detainees are held in various prisons. The figure does not include those detained in the detention centers of the State Security Force (SSF), the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS), the IRGC Intelligence, the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and the Army.
1,706 women detained with undecided status
Some 48,559 of the detainees, including 1,706 women, are going through the “investigation phase” and held with “undecided” status by agencies such as the State Security Force (SSF) and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS). Based on this data, 17,190 prisoners have more than 15 years of sentence.
Another highly confidential document lists 2,273 names of detainees arrested on political grounds or during anti-government protests, including members of Resistance Units. 1,552 of these prisoners are convicted, and 721 are detained on charges.
Chief executioner of women
In the past week alone, 16 persons were executed in Iranian prisons. They included a Baluchi woman.
Almost a year since Khamenei appointed Ebrahim Raisi as the regime’s president, at least 300 persons have been executed. The clerical regime executed 18 women in 2021, with a surge in executions under Raisi.
At least 132 women have been executed in Iran since September 2013.
