8 prisoners hanged in iran

-

The Iranian regime’s henchmen in Central Prison in the city of Karaj hanged eight prisoners on Monday. The victims had been sentenced to death for drug related offence.

The state-run media in Iran reporting the executions gave no other information on the victims.

The prisoners in Gohardasht Prison and Central Prison in Karaj launched a protest on Sunday to save dozens of their cellmates who are on the verge of execution.

Prisoners have attacked the prison guards with rocks, broke glasses and entered the open air area. Sunday afternoon in the prison in Karaj, clashes continued with prison guards. Prisoners cried out loud “We will not let you kill us!”

Meanwhile, the families gathered in front of Karaj Court and chanted “We will not let you execute them.” (watch Heartbreaking cries of families of prisoners facing execution)

On Sunday, the Iranian Resistance called for immediate action by the United Nations Security Council, the US government and the European Union to stop increasing trend of executions in Iran, and called on human rights bodies for a widespread global campaign against human rights violations in Iran.
