Tehran, Nov. 13 – Iranian officials in the town of Babol (northern Iran) paraded a young man around the town’s main streets on Wednesday.

One eyewitness reported that in a bid to mock and disgrace the young man as well as to ‘humiliate his dignity’ the regime’s agents ‘shaved his hair like a cross, put a long stick through his sleeves, and paraded him around the streets’.

The Iranian authorities frequently parade youths, forced to sit backwards on donkeys, in their local neighborhood so as to embarrass and humiliate them.

Such punishments are often used for petty crimes such as alcohol consumption, disregarding nightly curfews, and disrespect towards security agents.
