World’s top executioner of women
More than 4300 people have been executed in Iran during Rouhani’s 7-year tenure. They include 113 women.
At least 18 executions were carried out in the past two weeks, alone.
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 also holds the world’s record of top. 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.
