As the anniversary of the great civil protests of the Iranian people that began in September last year approaches, the dictatorial mullah regime ruling Iran, fearing a new wave of civil protests, has launched a new wave of arbitrary arrests of released prisoners as well as their family members and relatives of those killed during the civil protests. In the last few days, a large number of these people have been arrested at their homes or workplaces in different cities of the country and taken to unknown places.

"This shocking crime must be stopped as soon as possible!"

And so far there is no news about their whereabouts. Moreover, a large number of prisoners who have been in prison for more than 10 years, as well as hundreds of demonstrators in different cities of Kurdistan and other provinces of Iran, have been arrested under different pretexts and taken to the dreaded Qezal Hesar prison in Karaj, where the minimum standards of hygiene, food and humane accommodation are lacking.
This regime has also executed more than 500 prisoners since the beginning of January this year, making it the world's leading executioner in 2023. This shocking crime must be stopped as soon as possible.

Protests for freedom and human rights have been taking place in Iran since September 16, 2022. Women and young people in particular, but also more and more people from all sections of the population, are taking part and demanding their most basic human rights. The inhumane Mullah regime tried to suppress people's peaceful demonstrations with all kinds of methods, including direct shooting, but despite killing more than 750 demonstrators, including more than 69 children, the regime is not able to stop this great civil movement.

In recent years, execution has always been a main means of repression used by the mullahs to prevent protests by the population for their rights by creating an atmosphere of fear and terror.In relation to the population, the mullah regime has the highest number of executions in the world, especially for juvenile executions and public executions. 
Currently, a large number of those arrested, including many children and young people under the age of 18, face execution.

Geneva, May 19, 2023 - A moving vigil was held yesterday in Nations Square, in front of the UN in Geneva. Exiled Iranians and volunteers from Verein Welle gathered to protest the cruel wave of executions in Iran, in which three innocent young men, Saleh Mirhashemi, Saeed Yaqoubi and Majid Kazemi, were executed last Friday. The participants carried placards with inscriptions such as " Stop torture in Iran " and "Stop executions in Iran".


On December 8, the first arrested protester was executed. In an inhumane act, Iran's ruling mullahs sentenced 23-year-old Mohsen Shekari to death in an illegal show trial solely for his participation in the peaceful demonstrations and executed him without prior notice.
On December 12, just two days after International Human Rights Day, 22-year-old athlete Majidreza Rahnavard was publicly hanged.
