Hanging (Execution) April - May 2012

IRI is the winner of the most execution in less than a year months


May-17-2012 00:57 -- Salem-News.com

According to the Iranian state media, 18 people were executed in four different Iranian cities yesterday and today. The Iranian authorities have confirmed the executions of 30 prisoners during the last seven days. IHR has received reports of 23 additional executions that have not been announced by the official Iranian media.

Iran Human Rights strongly condemns the execution wave going on in Iran and urges the international community to react. Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, the spokesperson of IHR said: “We are puzzled by the silence of the international community despite the fact that about 50 people have been executed in Iran in just one week.”

More than 80% of people executed in Iran are convicted of drug trafficking and tried by the revolutionary courts behind closed doors.

Amiry-Moghaddam has asked the UN to reconsider its cooperation with the Iranian authorities. He said: “We know that the UN and several western countries cooperate with the Iranian authorities in order to fight “drug trafficking”. Many of those arrested as a consequence of this cooperation are executed. The world community must condemn these executions and stop any cooperation with Iranian authorities until there is 100% assurance that their cooperation will not contribute to the Iranian regime’s execution policy.”


According to the state run Iranian news agency ISNA, 14 prisoners were executed in a Tehran prison early this morning.

All those executed today were convicted of drug trafficking. Names of those executed today will be published shortly.


The state run Iranian news agency Fars reported that two prisoners identified as “S.R.” and “V.A.” were hanged in Sanandaj prison yesterday morning. Both the prisoners were convicted of rape and robbery.


According to the official web site of the Iranian judiciary in Mazandaran, one prisoner was hanged in Sari prison (northern Iran) yesterday morning. The prisoner, who was not identified by name, was convicted of trafficking 50 kilograms of opium, said the report.


According to the Kurdish news agwncy Kurdpa, a Kurdish prisoner by the name of “Hiva Havas” was hanged in Dizelabad prison (Kermanshah) yesterday morning. The report did not mention the prisoner’s charges, but did state that Havas had previously been arrested in connection with the 2009 Iranian post-election protests. This report has not been announced by official Iranian sources.

Islamic Republic (Iran) Executes Accused Israeli Spy; Blamed for Killing Scientist

New York Times News Service
Tuesday, May 15, 2012 at 2:24 p.m.

LONDON | Iran said Tuesday that it had executed a man accused of being an Israeli intelligence agent responsible for the assassination of one of its nuclear scientists, Iranian state media reported.

Press TV, a satellite broadcaster, identified the man as Majid Jamali Fashi and said he had been convicted of killing the scientist, Masoud Ali Mohammadi, in January 2010. Mohammadi was a 50-year-old professor at Tehran University whose role in Tehran's nuclear program was unclear. At the time of his death, Iran's Atomic Energy Organization said he had no role in the nuclear program.

The case seemed to be part of a shadow war played out between Iran and Israel, which has shown growing impatience with Western efforts to employ diplomacy and sanctions in the enduring crisis over Tehran's nuclear program. Iran says the program is for peaceful purposes, but Western leaders suspect that Tehran is seeking the capability to build a weapon.

At the time of Mohammadi's killing, state media in Iran reported that a remote-controlled bomb attached to a motorcycle went off outside his home in north Tehran. Iran blamed the United States and Israel for the attack. A State Department spokesman in Washington dismissed the accusation of U.S. involvement as “absurd.”

Press TV said Fashi had been executed at Tehran's Evin prison. He had also been found guilty of “receiving training from Mossad” — the Israeli spy agency — inside Israel and of being given $120,000 to assassinate the Iranian scientist. He had also confessed to using forged documents, received in Azerbaijan, to travel to Tel Aviv, the broadcaster said. The Iranian state news agency accused Fashi of traveling abroad “on several occasions” to be trained.

The killing was one of several apparently aimed at Iranians associated with nuclear research. The latest came in January when Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, 32, who was deputy director of the Natanz uranium enrichment plant, was killed on his way to work in rush-hour traffic in Tehran.

While Israel generally declines comment on such assassinations, Iran routinely blames Israeli agents for seeking to derail its nuclear program.

Iranian news accounts said a motorcyclist slapped a magnetized bomb on Roshan's car, killing him and mortally wounding his driver and bodyguard, identified as Reza Qashaqei.

The execution of Fashi came weeks after Iran's state media announced that 15 people, including Iranians and unspecified foreigners, had been arrested in connection with what the country's Intelligence Ministry described as a “Zionist-regime-linked” plot to assassinate one of its “specialists.”

The report by the state broadcaster IRIB also said Iran's intelligence services had uncovered an Israeli spy base in a neighboring country, without elaborating.

The execution also coincided with talks in Vienna between Iranian envoys and officials from the International Atomic Energy Agency to discuss the agency's desire to inspect facilities that it suspects have been used to test explosives capable of detonating a nuclear charge, which Iran denies.

The talks, set to continue Tuesday, however, are also seen as an informal precursor to talks scheduled this month in Baghdad, between Iran, the United States and other nations

Islamic Republic (Iran) hangs alleged Israeli agent in shadow war

May 15, 2012 / Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran – At the gallows, the condemned prisoner Tuesday repeated the allegations Iran lodged against him: That he was trained by Israel's spy agency to carry out one of the first attack on Iranian scientists in a suspected shadow war against Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

"The end of the road has nothing except repentance — and rope," Majid Jamali Fashi was quoted as saying just moments before he was hanged for the January 2010 bombing that killed Tehran University physics professor Masoud Ali Mohammadi.

The execution inside Tehran's Evin Prison — and Iran's state-sanctioned coverage of his purported last words — are connected to a world of alleged covert operations and assassination plots that have stretched from the Black Sea to Bangkok, and yet have somehow not disrupted efforts at nuclear talks between Iran and world powers, which are expected to resume next week in Baghdad.

At least four other members of Iran's scientific community have been killed since the explosion of a bomb-rigged motorcycle that targeted Mohammadi. Iran has blamed Israel's Mossad spy agency as well as the CIA and Britain's MI-6. Washington and London have previously denied any roles.

In Jerusalem, Israel Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Tuesday the slayings "are not connected to us in any way."

But Israel and others haves pointed the finger at Iran for alleged reprisal missions, including a February bombing in New Delhi that wounded an Israeli diplomat's wife and the discovery of a cache of explosives in Bangkok that Thai officials claim was linked a plot to target Israeli diplomats. In Azerbaijan's capital of Baku, security officials in March announced the arrest of 22 suspects allegedly hired by Iran for terrorist attacks against the U.S. and Israeli embassies and other Western-linked sites.

The intrigue, however, has remained on the margins as the U.S. and allies try to press ahead with negotiations over Iran's nuclear program. A first round last month in Istanbul produced no breakthroughs, but discussions are expected to intensify at the next session beginning May 23 between Iran and a six-nation group comprising the five permanent U.N. Security Council members plus Germany.

Possible bargaining could center on efforts to halt Iran's enrichment of uranium at 20 percent levels, the highest-grade material announced by Tehran. Iran, in turn, has signaled it could urge the U.S. and Europe to ease some of the most painful new sanctions, including those hitting Iran's oil exports and its access to international banking networks.

In Vienna, meanwhile, Iran and the U.N.'s nuclear agency held a second day of talks over suspicions that Tehran might have tested atomic arms technology at a military site. Iran denies the claims — as well as insisting it only seeks nuclear reactors for energy and medical research.

The morning of Jan. 12, 2010, signaled a potential shift in Iran's nuclear standoff with the West. The scientist Mohammadi was leaving for work when a bomb-laden motorcycle was blown apart by apparent remote control, killing the 50-year-old researcher whose work on subatomic particles had no direct military applications.

The suspect, Fashi, was put on trial in August 2011 in proceedings that received full state media attention. Iranian TV broadcast what it said were his confessions in which he admitted that he was recruited by the Mossad and went to Israel for training as a paid assassin. Little else has been made public about the 24-year-old Fashi except that he was a member of the national team in the sport of pankration, which includes elements of boxing, wrestling and fighting.

He was sentenced to death for crimes of "defiance of God," or using arms against Iran's Islamic government, and spreading "corruption on the earth," or damaging public security and order, according to the official IRNA news agency.

The scientist's wife, Mansoureh Karami, was quoted by a website affiliated with Iranian state TV as saying Fashi and his supporters will now "face the wrath of God" after his hanging.

But Palmor, the Israel Foreign Ministry spokesman, noted that "the killing of innocent people comes as a sad and morbid habit" in Iran, which has one of the world's highest execution rates.

Iran's state-controlled media usually portrays the country as a victim of Israel-linked aggression in the attacks on nuclear figures.

In a ceremony in February to insert domestically made fuel rods at a Tehran research reactor, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke on national television next to photos of the five nuclear scientists and researchers killed since 2010. Nearby was a large portrait of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei holding the son of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a senior director of Iran's main uranium enrichment facility, who was killed in January after a magnetic bomb tore through his car in Tehran.

Ahmadinejad lifted to his knee the daughter of nuclear electronics expert Darioush Rezaeinejad, who was fatally shot last year by two gunmen on motorcycles. Iran's nuclear chief, Fereidoun Abbasi, embraced the girl. Abbasi was wounded in November 2010 twin bombings that killed nuclear scientist Majid Shahriari.

Man hanged for alleged gay sex in Islamic Republic (Iran)

'Gangster' accused of gay sex executed in public in Fars Province, Iran

Thursday, April 26, 2012 10:19 PM EST | By Dan Littauer

A young man known by the initials CH M was hanged publicly in Marwdasht, Fars Province, Iran, for allegedly engaging in 'sodomy' with another man.

Speaking with the Iranian Fars News Agency, Gholamhossein Chamansara, the Attorney General of Marwdasht, reported that the death penalty was given to the man - whose exact age is not known - due to his 'despicable act' that contradicted Sharia Muslim laws.

Chamansara also added that the man was a gangster and performed the type of 'unlawful activities' for which the death penalty is usually applied.

He was executed on 19 April.

The Iranian Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRAN) stated that the reference to 'despicable acts' indicates that the death penalty was carried due to same-sex acts. However the judiciary regulatory office in Fars Province was unwilling to give more precise information about the case and the type of sexual activities of the executed man.

Commenting on the case, Hossein Alizadeh, of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) told Gay Star News: ‘None of the media sources that we have seen indicates that the person executed was gay.

'The state media have conflicting reports, noting that the person was involved in rape, sodomy and 10 other counts of criminal activities, including kidnapping and blackmailing.

'Even the initials of the person's name is reported differently in different sources. All sources so far have mentioned the person had a history of criminal activity and have described him as a gangster.

‘At this point, all we have are three media reports by three state-run sources. Given the lack of transparency in the Iranian legal system, it is not possible for us to verify any of the information.’

Gorji Marzban chairperson of the Austrian-based Oriental Queer Organization (ORQOA) told Gay Star News: ‘In Iran any kind of sexual activities beyond the category of marriage can be punished by death.

'Gay sex, adultery and in some cases rape are offences potentially punishable by the death penalty. In this case I did not see any statements given by judiciary bodies about adultery or rape, so to me it is seems very likely that "CH M" was hanged for gay sex.

‘At the same time the government claims that there are no homosexuals in Iran and homosexuality, and if existing at all, is a curable “condition”. Sexuality is basic human right and the person’s dignity and right to sexuality must be respected as long it involves adult consensual activity.’

Saghi Gaharahman, chairperson of the Toronto based Iranian Queer Organization (IRQO) told Gay Star News that she condemns the huge rate of execution in Iran.

But she told us: ‘It is hard to state he was gay. It's true that a gay-sex allegation was used to confirm the sentence, but that doesn't give reason to call it a gay execution. It can only be protested as an executions without adequate hearing and the services of a lawyer.’

She added: ‘I am afraid at this point, the regime is threat to everyone not only the LGBT community.’

Human Rights Watch (HRW) in its 2011 - We are a Buried Generation: Discrimination and Violence Against Sexual Minorities in Iran - stated that because trials on moral charges in Iran are usually held in closed sessions, it is difficult to determine what proportion of those charged and executed for same-sex conduct are gay and in what proportion the alleged offense was consensual.

Because of the lack of transparency, Human Rights Watch said: ‘It cannot be ruled out that Iran is sentencing sexual minorities who engage in consensual same-sex relations to death under the guise that they have committed forcible sodomy or rape.’

The issue of the death penalty for same-sex acts is further compounded by the fact that the Iranian legal code does not differentiate between rape and homosexual acts.

Furthermore, in many cases, it is often unclear whether the accused has actually committed a sexual act or it is a mere accusation based on some dispute. Even in the cases where the same-sex act has happened, often it is not clear whether the individuals involved are actually gay or it is an occasional act of sexual gratification.

Iranian Human Rights activists constantly note the fact that the two genders are strictly segregated increases the tendency for same-sex acts among the youth, in a phenomena that is also similarly known in single gender prisons. Indeed this phenomenon happens throughout highly segregated societies in the Middle East and North Africa.

Islamic Republic (Iran): 15 Executed On Drug Charges

Thursday, April 26, 2012 06:19 AM EST

Since Monday, April 23, 15 people have been executed at the Shahroud, Rejaishahr and Evin prisons in Iran.

The Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) reports that on April 25, five people convicted of drug charges were executed at Shahroud Prison. Four of the convicts were Afghan nationals and they were charged with “storing large amounts of drugs.”

Their applications for pardon were processed in two stages and denied by the Pardons Commission.

On Tuesday, April 24, the website for the Human Rights and Democracy Activists of Iran reported the mass execution of eight prisoners at Rejaishahr Prison in Karaj. One of the prisoners hanged in Karaj was also an Afghan national.

On April 24, another two prisoners, who had been transferred from Ghezel Hessar Prison to solitary confinement at Evin, were hanged at Evin.

In an earlier report, human rights activists said nine prisoners convicted of drug charges were executed in Shiraz, Marvsadht, Semnan and Zanjan between April 15 and 20.

Ahmad Shaheed, the special UN rapporteur on human rights in Iran, has expressed concern over the growing number of executions in Iran since 2003.

In his report, he indicated there had been more than 400 executions in Iran in 2011 and he mentioned the possibility of unannounced executions. About 81 percent of the death penalties are reportedly for drug charges.

According to Amnesty International, Iran has the second-highest rate of executions in the world, surpassed only by China. Share on facebookShare on twitterShare on emailShare on printMore Sharing Services About the author:
