Mr. Salar Shadi Zadi, a young prisoner who was merely 15 at the time of his alleged crime, is waiting to be executed on November 28 after already enduring 9 years behind bars., Amnesty International reported.
The religious fascism ruling Iran, dubbed by the people as the “Godfather of ISIS”, has in the past five days alone executed at least 17 prisoners. This follows the recent United Nations resolution condemning vicious human rights violations in Iran and a UN call to stop executions in Iran. Six of those executed had only 20 to 25 years of age.

A 20-year-old man in the town of Mayamey in Semnan Province was hanged on Wednesday, November 25. Despite calls made by international organizations the day prior to that Alireza Shahi, aged 25, was executed along with four other individuals. From the age of 18 he has been behind bars for 7 years.

Three prisoners hanged on November 21 in Zahedan Central Prison were all young men. Mojtaba Lak-Zehi, 22, was aged 17 at the time of his alleged crime. He and Hassan Dori Moghadam, 20, were both from Iran’s Baluchi minority community. Nazir Ahmad Rigi, 24, was an Afghan national.

Also on November 21 Mehdi Budineh was executed in Zabol Central Prison at the age of 25.
