Hengaw: Monday, November 13, 2023
Covert Execution of Three Baloch Political Prisoners in Zahedan Prison
The death sentences of three Baloch political detainees-Mohammad Brahui Anjumani, Idris Bilrani, and Mohammad Karim Barakzaei-were discreetly carried out in Zahedan Central Prison without the knowledge of their respective families. The Chief Justice of Zahedan has officially acknowledged the execution of these three individuals. According to reports obtained by the Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, during the early hours of Monday, November 13, 2023, the death sentences of three political detainees from Zahedan, specifically 28-year-old Mohammad Brahui Anjumani, 30-year-old Idris Bilrani, and 28-year-old Mohammad Karim Barakzaei, were enforced after two years of detention without knowledge of their families and an absence of the right to a final visit within Zahedan Central Prison. Hengaw underscores that, in the case of these three Baloch political detainees, the basic tenets of a fair trial were not adhered to, even within the laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran. While unequivocally denouncing the execution of these three individuals, Hengaw implores the international community and human rights organizations to give due consideration to this egregious infringement of the right to life in Iran. The arrest of these three Baloch individuals transpired in August 2020 by IRGC intelligence forces. After enduring six months of detention and maltreatment in the security institution's detention center, resulting in a coerced confession, they were subsequently moved to Zahedan Central Prison. It is imperative to note that during their period of detention, they were deprived of both the right to legal representation and familial visitation. Mohammad Brahoui Anjumani, Idris Bilrani, and Mohammad Karim Barakzaei received a final sentence of death and 15 years in prison from the second branch of the Zahedan Revolutionary Court on February 24, 2022. The charges brought against them include corruption on earth dealings through collaboration with armed groups against the regime. As per the documented statistics of the Statistics and Documentation Center of the Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, comprising these three cases, no fewer than 20 political, religious, and security detainees have faced execution within Iranian prisons since the commencement of this year. Moreover, the number of Baloch detainees executed during this period stands at 145.>>

Hengaw Organisation for Human Right - Nov 11 2023
<<Execution of Baloch Political Prisoner Meysam Chandani in Zahedan Central Prison
The death sentence of Meysam Chandani, a Baloch political prisoner convicted nearly twelve years ago by the judicial system of the Islamic Republic of Iran for the charge of <waging war against God (Moharebeh),> was carried out in Zahedan Central Prison. According to a report received by the Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, on the dawn of Saturday, November 11, 2023, the execution of Meysam Chandani, a political prisoner from Saravan, took place in Zahedan Central Prison. The political prisoner had been transferred to solitary confinement last Wednesday in preparation for the execution. The Hengaw Organization strongly condemns the execution of Meysam Chandani, emphasizing that he was sentenced to death by the judicial system of the Islamic Republic of Iran in a process deemed completely non-transparent, unfair, and illegal. According to Haalvsh, Meysam Chandani faced severe torture during his one-year detention at the Zahedan Intelligence Department's detention center, resulting in a coerced confession. Meysam Chandani had previously received a death sentence on charges such as <action against national security,> <membership in opposition groups of the Islamic Republic of Iran (Jundallah),> and <waging war against God through armed action.> He was arrested on August 28, 2011, during a raid conducted by Saravan Intelligence Department forces on his father's residence located in the Bakhshan area of this city.>>

Hengaw Organisation for Human Right - Nov 8 2023
<<Ghezel Hesar Prison: Execution of Death Sentences for Nine Prisoners
Nine prisoners faced execution at Ghezel Hesar prison in Karaj. The identities of three of these individuals, namely Hossein Hawasi, Rasul Taimuri, and Bahman Fethullahzadeh, have been officially confirmed. According to reports received by the Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, in the early hours of November 8, 2023, the death sentences of two prisoners hailing from Kohdasht, Lorestan, Hossein Hawasi and Rasul Taimuri, along with another inmate named Bahman Fethullahzadeh, were carried out within the confines of Ghezel Hesar prison. Additionally, the remaining six prisoners, whose identities remain under investigation, had their death sentences executed within the same correctional facility. Hossein Hawasi and Rasul Taimuri had received death sentences for offenses related to drug crimes. The other prisoners, on the other hand, were sentenced to death by the judicial system of the Islamic Republic on charges that encompassed muharebe (waging war against God), murder, and armed robbery. Notably, this development has yet to be announced in government-affiliated media outlets, particularly those closely aligned with the judiciary, at the time of composing this report.>>


NCRI - Womens committee - 2 Nov 2023 - in Women's News
<<Maryam Forough-Manesh hanged in Yasuj Prison; 18 women executed in 2023 so far
Another unfortunate woman, Maryam Forough-Manesh, was hanged in the Central Prison of Yasuj at dawn on Wednesday, November 1, 2023. The news of the execution of this execution has not been published by the Iranian state media and press at the time of writing this report. Maryam Forough-Manesh was from Dehdasht, in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer Ahmad Province in southwestern Iran. She had been convicted of murder and sentenced to death. It is not yet clear how many years she was incarcerated. According to the data compiled by the NCRI Women's Committee, this is the 221st woman to be executed in Iran since 2007, and the 18th woman executed in 2023, so far. Ebrahim Raisi has so far executed six more women every year. The number of executions in Iran has drastically increased since more than two years ago, when Ebrahim Raisi took office as the mullahs' president in August 2021. Based on the data compiled by the NCRI Women's Committee, 118 women were executed in Iran from August 2013 to August 2021, when Hassan Rouhani was in office. That makes an average of 15 women executed per year. However, under Ebrahim Raisi, 42 women were executed from August 2021 to August 2023. That makes an average of 21 women per year, which is six more women executed every year compared to the regime's previous president.
The Iranian regime is the world's top record holder of the executions of women.
The Women's Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran has compiled these women's names in a list called <List of Women Executed in Iran since 2007.> No government in the world has executed so many women. The list does not account for the tens of thousands of women executed in Iran on political grounds. The Iranian regime is the world’s top record holder of executions of women. The NCRI Women's Committee has previously mentioned that many women executed by the mullahs' regime are victims of domestic violence against women and have acted in self-defense.>>

<<Executions in Iran Are up 30 Percent, UN Report Says
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that the Islamic Republic of Iran is carrying out executions <at an alarming rate.> and expressed deep concern at the <lack of transparent and independent investigations> into reports of massive human rights violations. The Iranian authorities executed at least 419 people in the first seven months of the year, up 30 percent from the same period in 2022, Guterres said in a new report to the UN General Assembly on the human rights situation in Iran. More than half of those executed - 239 people - were reportedly put to death on drug-related charges, a 98-percent increase from the same period last year, he said. Seven men were executed in relation to or for participating in the monthslong nationwide protests sparked by the September 2022 death in police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, according to the report. In all seven cases, the judicial proceedings <did not fulfill the requirements for due process and a fair trial under international human rights law,> it said, adding that <access to adequate and timely legal representation was frequently denied, with reports of coerced confessions, which may have been obtained as a result of torture.> Guterres cited information received by the UN rights agency that between September 2022 and February 2023, an estimated 20,000 people were arrested for their involvement in the protest movement. <It is particularly concerning that most of the individuals arrested may have been children, given that the reported average age of those arrested was estimated to be 15 years, according to the deputy commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps,> the secretary-general said. He cited reported instances of disproportionate and excessive use of force against demonstrators, and beatings and sexual violence after they were put into custody, as well as psychological abuse.The government said <a minimum of> 22,000 people detained during the protests were pardoned, but Guterres pointed out that it was difficult to verify the numbers of those arrested and released. He also said that a number of those who were pardoned then received summonses on new charges or were rearrested, including activists, journalists and members of minority groups. According to the report, <the continued denial of adequate medical care in detention remains a serious concern.> The secretary-general urged Iran to immediately halt all executions, abolish the death penalty and release all people detained arbitrarily <for legitimately exercising their rights to freedom of opinion and expression, association and peaceful assembly.>
Guterres said the government should guarantee the right to peaceful assembly, ensure that security at protests complies with international human rights norms and standards, and respect the rights to due process and fair trials.>>
