Iran Human Rights: Two unidentified prisoners were reportedly hanged at Mashhad's Vakilabad Prison on Sunday February 12 on murder charges, and seven unidentified prisoners were reportedly hanged at Qom's Langroud Prison on Monday February 13 on drug related charges.
According to the state-run news agency Rokna, one of the prisoners from Vakilabad Prison comitted murder on March 11, 2007 at the age of 19 while the other prisoner committed murder on December 19, 2007 at the age of 21.
The human rights news agency HRANA reported on the seven executions carried out at Langroud Prison. Their report identifies one of the prisoners as Saeed Shokri, 26 years of age.
"The prosecutor of Qom is newly appointed, and these seven executions were his way of spreading fear. Unfortunately, they didn't even allow Mr. Shokri's lawyer to file a request for a retrial. Instead, they ridiculed him and said that he should attend his client's funeral the next day," a source close to Mr. Shokri tells Iran Human Rights.
Iranian official sources, including the Judiciary and the media, have been silent on these seven executions.
