Tehran, Oct. 5 – A young man was publicly hanged yesterday afternoon in the Robat square of Isfahan (central Iran) as his wife and child were forced to watch.

Mehrzad Vajebal-Hoghough, a 33 year old resident in Isfahan was accused of armed robbery and possession of 7 Kilograms of marijuana.

The judge who had sentenced Mehrzad asked him if he had any final comments as he was being led to the gallows, according to witnesses. Mehrzad did not reply and was silent, they said.

Some 3 thousand people had crowded in the square to witness the hanging. One eye-witness stated that State Security Forces (SSF) forced the victim’s son to stay and watch his father execution while tormenting him by swearing at him and calling him the son of an infidel. He added that the crowd became ‘violent and vocal’ upon seeing the young boy crying, and that the regime’s agents, fearing ‘a furious reaction’ from the crowd, were forced to quickly bring down the dead corpse within 10 minutes.

The regime’s state-run press has confirmed over 125 public executions since March 2004. The actual figure is believed to be much higher.
