Tehran, Apr. 13 – A father and his 17-year-old son will be executed by hanging on Saturday after being convicted of rape and theft, a state-run newspaper reported today.

The execution of Mousa Ali-Mohammadi and his son Rasoul will take place at dawn on Saturday before which each will receive 74 lashes, the Iran daily wrote. Mousa Ali-Mohammadi is due to be hanged in public, while his son will be simultaneously hanged in Isfahan prison.

Iran is a member of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, yet routinely carries out death penalties on children under the age of 18.

In a separate incident, two men were executed in the southern city of Yasooj on charges of murder.

The state-run daily Hambastegi reported today that the two men, identified as Hatam Jarideh Kish, 38, and Ali Fath Hemati, 50, were hanged in prison on Monday.

Iran has been consistently rebuked for its human rights abuses and execution rate.

Iran daily wrote yesterday that a man, only identified as Abdollah, would be hanged in public in Tehran next week. The execution will take place using a crane, it added.

Two young prisoners, aged 18 and 22, will also soon be publicly hanged in Kerman (southern Iran), according to Iran daily’s April 11 issue.

In the past three weeks state-run press have reported 18 counts of public hangings or execution sentences in Iran.

Iran experts and human rights organizations say, however, Tehran, which has the highest record of political executions in the world, avoids declaring executions of political prisoners.
