Iranian Regime Executes Kurdish Political Prisoner In Sanandaj

Wednesday, 06/21/2023

A Kurdish political prisoner was executed on Wednesday morning in Sanandaj Central Prison of Iran’s Kordestan Province.

The judiciary of the Islamic Republic is yet to respond about the reports of the execution of Hayman Mostafaei published by Hengaw human rights organization and the Free Union of Iranian Workers.

Reports on social media say a rally was also held in front of prison on Tuesday night to prevent the execution of the 34-year-old political prisoner.

“The people of Sanandaj and a large crowd coming from Marivan gathered in front of the prison and did their best until the last moment to save Mustafaei’s life, but they took the life of another person,” wrote the Free Union of Iranian Workers.

Mustafaei was accused of killing an IRGC member in 2012 and sentenced to death after being tortured to obtain a forced confession.

In recent months, the Islamic Republic has expedited the execution process of imprisoned citizens.

Many of the people executed in recent months were accused of killing security forces, however, the Islamic Republic has never opened any case to investigate the killing of protesters by security forces.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk expressed concern over the increase in executions in Iran on Monday, saying " I am concerned by the massive recent increase in executions, as well as continuing discrimination against women and girls."

“Iran continues to engage formally with my office, including on issues pertaining to discrimination against women and girls; accountability for severe human rights violations; and imminent executions,” added Türk.
