Two Dissidents Executed in Khorramabad in Iran
The two executed dissidents were Jahanbakhsh Abbasi and Mehran Naqdi, whom the mullahs’ court sentenced to death last year after torturing them and forcing them to take part in television confessions.
The execution of these two dissidents is reminiscent of the inhuman execution of Mostafa Salehi and Navid Afkari. Mustafa was executed in Isfahan on August 5, 2020, after two and a half years of torture and solitary confinement, on charges of killing a Revolutionary Guards member during the December 2017 Iran protests.
The Iranian Resistance calls on the United Nations Secretary-General, the UN High Commissioner, the UN Human Rights Council, the UN Special Rapporteurs, and all human rights organizations, as well as the European Union and its member states, to take action to save the lives of death row prisoners.
