Seems like it was few days ago (25 Nov) when the Amnesty International highlighted human rights in Iran have remained a low priority despite earlier promises made during the presidential campaign, furthermore Iran’s prisons remain full of political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, many of whom suffer from lack of adequate medical care. The Islamic Regime of Iran quickly gallops his horse in the international arena, and nobody can stop him.

While the world powers are engaged to deal on Iran’s nuclear programme, new government come into office of Rouhani has distorted the international circles eyes from the human rights condition in Iran and Rojhelat (Eastern Kurdistan) taking advantage of the “heroic flexibility” policy adopted by Iranian Supreme Leader as smile to outside and suppression to inside.

According to the report of HRANA News Agency, the anti-human regime of Iran hanged 11 prisoners 11 including 10 men and a woman in a mass execution in Ghezel-Hesar prison, Karaj, west of Tehran on Monday 25 Nov. After these executions all prisoners of this ward went on hunger strike.

“We did not get the food which is given to us by the prison and gave the food which we had bought from the prison shop to the guard room. There are 3000 death row prisoners in this ward. We want our cases to be retreated and the death penalties to be repealed.” that was one of the prisoner’s talks.

A day before this mass hanging, more than 1000 prisoners went on hunger strike protesting this inhumane sentence. Families of the victims had protested outside the Ghezel-Hesar prison prior to the execution asking the annulment of the sentences, but according to the other prisoners, Amoozadeh, of the prison wardens told the condemned prisoners that ‘you will all be hanged after the Geneva talks with the P5+1, stated the People Mojahedin Organization of Iran.

Following the execution wave in the past months in Iran, families of death row prisoners gathered on Tuesday (26 Nov) outside the Iranian Parliament in a peaceful protest against the death penalty, various human rights agencies reported. The protesters who were mainly women were carrying placards where it was written “Why Death Penalty? Firat News Agency reported from Tehran.

It is worth mentioning that the types of psychological-mental stresses, lack of attention to the physical conditions of inmates by prison doctors-linked the regime also discrimination and torture have grown over against civil and political prisoners in Bandar Abbas and Minab Prisons. This unacceptable circumstance has become a daily matter and commonplace, was called “hellish jail” by the prisoners.

Coincided with the escalation of violence and breach of Human Rights in the Iran Prisons, on November 21st “Kaveh Veisi, Mokhtar Rahimi, Kaveh Sharifi, Behrouz Shahnazari, Taleb Maleki and Shahram Ahmadi”, the Sunni prisoners who have been sentenced to death on charge of supporting the Salafi groups, are transferred to ward 350 of Evin prison after 15 days hunger strike.

On 26th of October 2013 Hebibulla Gulperipur, a well-known political activist and Reza Ismaili (PJAK members) also 16 other political prisoners were executed in Iran. Again, on 4th of November 2013 Sherko Mearefi, another Kurdish political prisoners, was executed in west of Iran.
