A woman was hanged among 19 people executed between March 9 and 17, 2022, in the Central Prison of Shiraz, also known as Adelabad Prison.
An unidentified woman was hanged along with her husband on the morning of Monday, March 14, 2022, in Adelabad Prison on charges of deliberate murder. They had just got married at the time of the arrest.
At least 19 prisoners were executed in the Central prison of Shiraz between March 9 and 17.
The authorities of Adelabad Prison have told another 15 death-row prisoners that their sentences will be carried out before Ramadan.
The world’s chief executioner of women
With this latest execution in Shiraz, the number of women executed in Iran since summer 2013, reaches 131.
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’s 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.
