Time and time again, Iran is listed as the country with the second highest rate of executions in the world.The Huffington Post shared an insightful article from Movements.org, that discusses the disturbing human rights violations taking place in Iran.
Below is an excerpt from the article:
The cruel and unusual punishment the Iranian government inflicts on its citizens does not stop at death sentences for crimes not meeting international standards, but continues in its treatment of prisoners currently sitting on death row. Two days after his execution, Hamed Ahmadi’s words gave the world a glimpse into the atrocities committed against death row prisoners. It describes how, over the course of five years, prison guards repeatedly left him with the impression he was to be executed the next day:
“The door opened. Our hearts started to pound. The nightmare of death was coming true…But 45 days went by. Every day, we thought we would be executed the next day but no one came for us. We approached death 45 times. We said good-bye to life 45 times.”
