Tehran, Nov. 29 – A 19-year-old man was sentenced to death yesterday, after being convicted of murder. The young man whose identity has not been announced was found guilty of killing his father in the Iranian capital of Tehran.

This latest sentence follows a string of public executions carried out by the Iranian regime in recent days.

A prisoner identified only as Esmaeil K. from Isfahan’s central prison was hanged on Saturday. The execution took place after it was upheld by the Supreme Court.

Last Tuesday an unnamed man was executed in the city of Isfahan, also accused of murder. He was hanged in public in the early hours of the day in Toughchi Square.

On the same day a 20-year-old called Payam Erfani-Nejad died as the result of beatings by Iranian Revolutionary Guards in the town of Salmas (Western Iran). The Guards severely beat up Payam last week for talking to a woman in public leaving him bleeding in the street. Payam’s relatives rushed him to hospital where he died within 48 hours due to the severity of his injuries.

Again on Tuesday, a 64-year-old man called Aziz Rasouli was hanged in public opposite the central mosque of Hadi-Shahr (Northeastern Iran).

On Nov. 12, Kaveh Habibi-Nejad, a 14-year-old schoolboy from Sanandaj died after being flogged for “eating in public” during the holy Islamic month of Ramadan. The autopsy revealed that the boy died “as a result of brain hemorrhage, after the back of his skull was fractured by a blow from a hard object”.
