    Iran Executions - 2011

    Iran hangs 4 for abduction, murder

    TEHERAN - IRAN hanged on Saturday four men convicted of kidnapping and killing several people in the restive southeastern Sistan-Baluchestan province, the official IRNA news agency reported.

    The men identified as Mahmoud Barahui, Shahram Narui, Zohoor Ahmad Asef-Doost and Jahanbakhsh Barahui, were executed in a prison in the provincial capital Zahedan.

    'They took innocent people hostage, extorted money from their families and caused fear and insecurity by killing some of the hostages,' Sistan-Baluchestan justice chief Ebrahim Hamidi told the agency.

    The official said the group had killed three kidnapped men and a policeman.

    Sistan-Baluchestan lies on a major drug trafficking route from neighbouring Pakistan and Afghanistan. Several people, including government officials, have reportedly been kidnapped by rebels and drug traffickers in recent years.

    The province has also seen several deadly bombings over the past years blamed on the Sunni insurgent group the Jundallah.

    The four were the first hangings reported in 2011. Iran hanged at least 171 people in 2010, according to an AFP count based on media reports. At least 270 people were executed in 2009.

    Iran hangs murderer in public

    TEHRAN, Jan 5 - Iran on Wednesday hanged in public a man convicted of committing a sensational daylight murder in a Tehran neighbourhood in October, state news agency IRNA reported.

    The convict, identified only by his first name Yaqub, was hanged in front of a "large crowd" in northern Tehran's Kaj square, close to the neighbourhood where he had murdered Mohammad Reza, the report said.

    Iranian media in October reported that Yaqub stabbed Mohammad Reza to death in public and in front of two policemen.

    The murder, which triggered widespread anger in the neighbourhood, gripped the attention of Iranians as videos of the brutal stabbing surfaced on the Internet and were shown on Iranian television channels for several days.

    Iran widely uses the death penalty but convicts are rarely executed in public. The Islamic republic says the death penalty is essential to maintain law and order and is applied only after exhaustive judicial proceedings.

    The latest hanging brings to 13 the number of executions reported in Iran so far this year, according to an AFP count based on media reports. At least 179 people were executed in 2010.

    Along with China, Saudi Arabia and the United States, Iran has one of the highest numbers of executions each year.

    Murder, rape, armed robbery, drug trafficking and adultery are other crimes punishable by death in Iran.

    Iran hangs two political prisoners

    Tehran/London, Jan. 24 - Iran hanged two political prisoners on Monday for taking part in anti-government protests in 2009 and supporting the main Iranian opposition group, according to a statement by the Tehran prosecutor's office.

    Jafar Kazemi, 47, and Mohammad Ali Haj-Aghaie, 62, were hanged at dawn, though the statement did not state where they were hanged. Both were affiliated to the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI).

    "The convicts had resorted to distributing pictures and banners related to the Monafeghin (PMOI), taking photos and films of the clashes as well as chanting slogans in favour of the group", the statement said.

    The executions were condemned by the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the main opposition coalition which includes the PMOI.

    NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi in a statement called on the world community, the UN Security Council and the European Union to "condemn these barbaric executions and to suspend economic and diplomatic ties with the ruling medieval regime until an improvement in the situation of human rights and a halt in torture and execution".

    Both men had visited their relatives in Camp Ashraf, Iraq. The camp houses some 3,400 members of the PMOI.

    UK Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt MP earlier this month urged Tehran not to carry out the sentences.

    "I am also deeply concerned by reports that Jafar Kazemi and Mohammad Ali Haj-Aghaie may be imminently executed for 'enmity against God'. The United Kingdom condemns the use of the death penalty, and appeals for these sentences to be commuted", Burt said in a 10 January statement.

    Amnesty International has said that Jafar Kazemi was arrested on 18 September 2009, after mass anti-government protests and interrogated and possibly tortured for months in Evin prison in Tehran, possibly to pressure him to make a televised "confession", which he refused to do. He was accused of participating in protests which followed the disputed outcome of Iran's presidential election in June 2009, but was not accused of committing any violent acts, it said, adding that one of his sons is a PMOI member in Camp Ashraf.

    Amnesty's 5 January statement also said Mohammad Ali Haj-Aghaei was arrested and tried alongside Kazemi for visiting relatives in Camp Ashraf. The Supreme Court upheld his death sentence in September 2010.

    US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last August urged Iran to release the two men.

    In December, Ali Saremi, a political prisoner of 24 years, was hanged on charges of visiting his son in Camp Ashraf. Earlier this month, a young Kurdish dissident, Hossein Khezri, met the same fate.
