Tehran, Iran, Jul. 20 – Members of Iran’s parliament from the north-eastern city of Mashad, where a minor and an 18-year-old man were publicly hanged yesterday, vented their anger on Wednesday on foreign and domestic news outlets for reporting the ages of hanged prisoners.

Ultra-conservative deputy Ali Asgari said that the two deserved to be hanged in public, adding, “Whatever sentence is decreed by an Islamic penal system must be approved, unless proven otherwise”.

Asgari complained of foreign and domestic reporting that the two were mere boys. “Instead of paying tribute to the action of the judiciary, the media are mentioning the age of the hanged criminals and creating a commotion that harms the interests of the state”, the member of the Majlis Legal Affairs Committee said.

“Even if certain websites made a reference to their age, journalists should not pursue this. These individuals were corrupt. Their sentence was carried out with the approval of the judiciary and it served them right.”

Effat Shariati, another Majlis deputy from Mashad, told a state-run news agency on Wednesday, “The issue of the age of the convicts is created by those who are causing problems for our country”.

The two young men were lashed 228 times before being hanged at 10 am (local time) on Tuesday in Edalat (Justice) Square in downtown Mashad.
