Iran Hangs Two Young Men For Stealing Less Than 35 Euros

Sisters Of The Victims of Hanging Watching As Their Brothers Are Being Hanged




The Iranian regime publically hanged Alireza Mafiha, 20, and Mohammad-Ali Sarvari, 23, accused of Moharebeh(waging war against God) and "corruption on earth", on Sunday morning, January 202013. The two young men had been accused of stealing 150 thousand Tomans (less than 35 Euros) while carrying cold weapons. Even though the plaintiffs in the case had opposed the sentence, the regime hanged the two young prisoners to follow its own objectives in creating an atmosphere of horror, fear, and absolute repression in order to prevent any public expression discontent especially as the regime's sham presidential election is approaching.
According to state-run media, the theft had occurred less than 7 weeks ago on December 2nd, and the two youths were arrested on December 15. That means the entire process leading to executions took only 6 weeks. The so-called court session was presided by regime’s henchman judge Salavati who has a dreadful record of arbitrary executions and must be brought to justice for crimes against humanity.
