The number of women executed in Iran under Rouhani reaches 108

number of women executed in Iran reaches 108With another execution carried out at dawn on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, the number of women executed in Iran reached 108 during Rouhani’s tenure as the president of Iran.
Iran’s Judiciary hanged Mahtab Shafii, 32, at dawn in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, also known as Rajaiishahr prison.
Mahtab Shafii had been detained for seven years in Qarchak Prison on the charge of murder.
None of the regime’s official agencies have announced the news of execution of Mahtab Shafii by the time this news is being published.
There are more women on the death row in the Central Prison of Urmia.

Iran’s Supreme Court upheld the death sentence for another woman in Tehran on September 21, 2020.

Iran holds the record of the world’s top executioner with the highest number of citizens executed per capita. Iran also holds the world’s record of top executioner of women. These executions are cruelly unjust.

The substantiated information is based on news and information published in the state-run media in Iran and other reliable sources inside Iran. The actual figure is higher. The clerical regime in Iran carries out most executions in secret and out of the public eye. No witnesses are present at the time of execution but those who carry them out.

The Iranian human rights supporters call for the abolishment of the death penalty in Iran.
