Thirteen Were Executed in a Month for Rape

HRANA News Agency – The Statistics, Publications and Achievements Division of Human Rights Activists in Iran has reported that thirteen prisoners accused of rape have been executed in various cities throughout Iran during the last thirty days.According to the policy set forth by Iran’s Judiciary Branch, twelve of these individuals were hanged in public in order to set examples and frighten the masses.

These executions have been happening while in recent days, the news of gang-rapes in Esfahan and Kashmar has caused increasingly sharp criticism of the Judiciary System that has failed to assist the victims who called the emergency services for help.

According to the report released by the Statistics, Publications and Achievements Division of Human Rights Activists in Iran, nine prisoners were also hanged in different cities throughout Iran from mid April to mid May.

It seems as if punishing the perpetrators of rape violently has produced reverse effects in dealing with this harmful social phenomenon such that the spokesman for Iran’s Judiciary Branch has indirectly pointed out that there are tens of rapes cases only in the city of Kashmar.
