With this execution, the number of women executed under Rouhani reaches 109.
The mullahs’ Judiciary hanged Mahtab Shafii, 32, at dawn on September 23, 2020, in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, also known as Rajaiishahr prison.
The Iranian regime hanged two other women in the Central Prison of Mashhad on August 2 and 18, 2020.
World’s top executioner of women
More than 4300 people have been executed in Iran under Rouhani’s tenure. They include 109 women and at least 38 juvenile offenders.
The actual number of executions and particularly the execution of women 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.
Iran holds the record of the world’s top executioner with the highest number of citizens executed per capita. Iran also holds the world’s record of top executioner of women. These executions are cruelly unjust.
The NCRI Women’s Committee formerly noted that many women convicted of murder in Iran are victims of domestic violence. They have committed murder in self-defense.
The NCRI Women’s Committee has published a list of the women executed during Rouhani’s tenure. The substantiated information is based on news and information published in the state-run media in Iran and other reliable sources inside Iran.
The Iranian Resistance calls for the abolishment of the death penalty in Iran.
