A Baluch youth was executed in Shiarz Prison before seeing his family for the last time.
Criminal execution of a 23-year-old Baluch youth before his family arrived in Shiraz from Sistan and Baluchestan to see him for the last time, is yet another violation of human rights conducted by the theocratic regime ruling Iran under Khamenei and the mass murderer Ebrahim Raisi.
The human rights center of “No to Prison, No to Execution” quoting Resanak reported that at dawn of Tuesday, November 2, 2021, a 23-year-old Baluch youth named Mohammad Raisi was executed in Shiraz prison on murder charges. This is while Mohammad himself had informed his family that he had been transferred to quarantine section to be executed the night before. But before his family reached Shiraz from Sistan and Baluchistan Province, Mohammad was executed. Mohammad Iqbal Raisi, 23, was the son of Iqbal from Ritak village in Fanooj county.
According to the report last night, Mohammad contacted his family and informed them that he had been transferred to quarantine. When his family arrived in Shiraz this morning, they were referred by the mortuary authorities to receive their son’s body.
In connection with the cause of the murder by the 23-year-old Baluch, it is explained: “Mohammad Iqbal Raisi went to Shiraz for work and his boss, who was Azeri and from Ardebil, intended to sexually assault him one night being high. Mohammad Iqbal Raisi defended himself, which led to the man’s death.”
It is said that the victim’s family had demanded one billion tomans as blood money from Mohammad’s family.
Conditioning the executions to the satisfaction of the victim’s family and heavy blood money, while most families are under the poverty line in Iran, is an unprecedented crime committed under the name of Islam by the dictatorship of Velayat-e-Faqih in Iran.
Considering the execution of this prisoner, at least 196 prisoners have been executed since the beginning of this Persian year (March 21, 2021). More than two-thirds of the world’s countries (144 countries) have now abolished the death penalty in law or stopped its implementation, according to Amnesty International’s annual report. But the execution machine in Iran is accelerating every day, and with Ebrahim Raisi’s presidency and the Ejei presidency over the judiciary, executions have accelerated.
Also, according to a report published by the human rights center of “No to Prison, No to Execution”, the number of executions from October 2020 to October 2021 were at least 314, of which 283 men, 12 women, 13 political prisoners and six juvenile offenders were registered in prisons in 25 provinces of Iran.
