Iran: Regime hangs protester Mostafa Salehi to terrorize the public, thwart uprisings
Mrs. Rajavi calls on the United Nations to condemn this crime and to visit Iranian prisons
Earlier this morning, in yet another heinous crime, the anti-human religious dictatorship ruling Iran hanged Mostafa Salehi, one of the prisoners of the Dec 2017-January 2018 uprising, in Dastgerd prison in Isfahan. Salehi, 30, was arrested in Kahrizsang, Isfahan, and sentenced to death during a sham trial for "leading the Kahrizsang riots in Najafabad.”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), strongly condemned the barbaric hanging of Mr. Salehi, and said: Reluctantly forced to refrain from executing eight other detained protesters subsequent to the millions-strong social media campaign calling for the halt in executions, the ruling religious fascism carried out this execution in retaliation and in order to terrorize the public and thwart the outbreak of any uprising.
Mrs. Rajavi urged the United Nations and its member states, as well as international organizations and institutions to immediately condemn this criminal execution. She emphasized that more than any other time, it is imperative to dispatch an international fact-finding mission to visit Iranian prisons and meet with prisoners.
