HRANA – At 12:00 noon on Sunday, May 23, 2010, a man was executed in public in the city of Ahvaz.

Based on information received by HRANA, the Islamic Republic’s judiciary announced the man’s crime as “smuggling narcotics.” He had been sentenced to execution by the Revolutionary Court of Ahvaz.

This is the second person hanged in public in the city of Ahvaz for allegedly “smuggling narcotics,” over the past few days. The government seems to have little concern for that fact that carrying out executions in public is one of the most effective ways for normalizing and perpetuating violence.
