Two Sunni Muslim political prisoners executed in Zahedan
Two political prisoners of Sunni Muslim minority in Zahedan, provincial capital of Sistan and Baluchistan in Southeast Iran, were hanged in prison on Saturday.
According to the regime’s judiciary in the province, “Those executed, Ayoub Rigi and Massoud Gomshadzehi, were accused of waging war against God and spreading corruption on earth … and therefore sentenced to death,” the state-run daily Qods, reported today.
The clerical regime also hanged 13 other political prisoners on July 14 for the same charges.
The regime is trying to spread fear by these executions in the province in order to prevent people’s uprising. The mullahs are extremely worried about the situation due to people’s hatred toward the regime as a result of repression, discrimination and widespread poverty.
