Whilst Rouhani smiles abroad, executions have been stepped up in Iran according to Mina Ahadi and the International Committee against Execution. Since the election at least 213 prisoners have been executed. 27 were executed in the past two weeks. There are plans to execute 26 political prisoners imminently.
Rouhani was quoted saying he wanted to empty the prisons – it seems the regime intends to do so via executions…
Here Shahin Najafi and Majid Kazemi sing against executions as should we all.
