Italian Parliamentarians condemn rising wave of executions in Iran; Call for int’l intervention
According to the Committee’s recent statement, the Iranian regime has intensified its use of terror tactics, deploying a brutal execution campaign aimed at stifling a popular uprising that kicked off in September. The document indicates that, over the past month alone, there have been at least 112 recorded executions. The staggering figure underscores the urgency of the human rights situation, necessitating immediate international response.
The statement brought to light the execution of three young protestors in Isfahan on May 19. Saleh Mirhashmi, aged 36, Majid Kazemi, 30, and Saeed Yaqoubi, 37, were targeted specifically for their participation in the November protests. Their execution is characterized as one among a series of crimes committed by Khamenei’s regime, revealing its desperate efforts to retain power.
The Committee denounced the physical and psychological torture these individuals endured, which continued unabated despite domestic and international outcry. The detainees reportedly suffered months of cruel torment before facing execution by hanging.
In response to these profound human rights infringements, the Italian Committee of Parliamentarians for a Free Iran, echoing an appeal made by Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), urges decisive action from the Italian government, the United Nations, the European Union, and its member states. The Committee calls for a robust denouncement of these executions and the implementation of effective measures to exert pressure on the Iranian regime.
The Committee underlined that the ongoing cycle of repression carried out by the Iranian regime amounts to crimes against humanity, in clear violation of international law.
In summary, the Italian Committee of Parliamentarians for a Free Iran’s statement heightens concerns about Iran’s growing execution trend targeting political prisoners. It demands immediate global attention and action to prevent further human rights abuses, emphasizing the necessity of a united international front to condemn these executions, support the Iranian people’s aspirations for freedom and human rights, and advance a just and humane society within Iran.
