Executions In Iran
Prior to Rouhani’s election, Iran had the highest per capita execution rate in the world, with Dr. Shaheed expressing his alarm at “the rate of executions in the country.”
Executions have not only continued unabated since Rouhani’s election but have escalated, with some 100 Iranians executed in the first month alone following his election. Moreover, a large number of prisoners are killed by the regime in secret, such that the number of executions is almost certainly higher.
Query: Will President Rouhani declare a moratorium on executions?
