IRAN: TWO PRISONERS HANGED PUBLICLY

May 28, 2012: two men have been hanged publicly in Iran recently.
The first prisoner was executed on May 25 outside Lar prison (southern Iran) in the morning.
Iran Human Rights has confirmed the information on this recent execution through two reliable, independent sources.
The sources said the young man was in his twenties and his name was Abdolreza Damankeshan (known as Navab). He was convicted of rape.
In an interview with Radio Farda on the night before Abdolreza’s execution, his attorney (Mr. Hossein Raeisian) said, "The person who had accused Abdolreza of rape later withdrew her accusation. However, the authorities did not pay attention to the facts and executed him to set an example for others."
On May 24, one prisoner identified as Amirhossein Hosseini was publicly executed in a city square in Ilam for the murder of a 13-year-old, reported the Iranian state-run news agency FARS.
Since May 15 at least 60 people have been executed in Iran. (Sources: Iran Human Rights, 26/05/2012)
