    Lined up and hanged in front of a baying mob: Human rights group condemns surge in public Iranian executions
    At least 28 public executions in Iran in recent months
    By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
    Last updated at 2:25 PM on 22nd July 2011


    Lined up standing on buses in front of a baying mob with their necks tied to a bridge, these are the final moments of three men subjected to a public hanging.
    But rather than originating from decades ago, these pictures were taken last week in Iran, where the death penalty is still publicly used to this day.
    After the ties are secured, the buses on which the men stand are driven away, leaving the hastily-convicted criminals hanging in front of crowds of onlookers, many of whom are children.
    SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

    A shocking video has been released by Amnesty International showing a public execution in Iran

    Outrage: The video was passed on to human rights campaign group Amnesty International
    The footage was released by human rights group Amnesty International, who have denounced the renewed surge in the use of the death penalty across the Islamic republic.


    The video was shot on July in Azadi Square, in the western city of Kermanshah and features the public execution of three men convicted of rape.
    During the 26-second clip in which the crimes of the men are announced over a loudspeaker, numerous onlookers are seen photographing or filming the graphic executions.
    Human rights officials are concerned not only about the executions, but also the legal system preceding them.
    It is thought the three men seen hanged were tried and convicted of rape within two months, raising questions about the fairness of their trial.
    Amnesty International say the deaths are among at least 28 executions acknowledged by the authorities.
    The group's Middle East and North Africa Deputy Director Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui said: 'These latest public executions underline the continuing horror of the death penalty in Iran.

    Amnesty International have described the videos as 'deeply disturbing' and a 'gross affront to human dignity'

    Grisly: At the end of the video the buses move away and the prisoners die in front of the crowd
    'Not only those executed, but all those who watch public executions, including, children, are brutalised and degraded by the experience.
    'These public displays of killing perpetuate a culture of acceptance of violence and bloodlust, rather than a belief in justice.
    'It is deeply disturbing that despite a moratorium on public executions ordered in 2008, the Iranian authorities are once again resorting to this inhuman practice.
    'All executions violate the right to life. Those carried out publicly are a gross affront to human dignity which cannot be tolerated.
    'Executions after speedy unfair trials are no solution to the extremely serious problem of rape in Iran, which feeds on the acceptance of violence against women at all levels of society.
    'The Iranian authorities should be aiming to combat this culture of violence rather than perpetuate it through these public displays of brutality.'
    The executions follow several widely publicised gang rapes of women this year in Iran. In some cases, officials blamed the victims for failing to adhere to the official code on dress or gender segregation.
    According to UN human rights experts, executions in public serve no legitimate purpose and only increase the cruel, inhuman and degrading nature of this punishment.
    The Iranian authorities do not publish official statistics on their use of the death penalty, despite repeated calls for transparency by UN human rights bodies.

    If America is allowed to kill its prisoners why shouldn't Iran be allowed?

    Cos it's great FUN, but maybe you're right maybe the Yanks should promote it to include COONS of all religions?

    Catford might be a good starting benchmark?

    I guess not much difference in the end result. The yanks video taped a guy being killed today in Georgia.

    I don't reckon you will hear a diplomatic outcry from the USA.

    9/11, how many patriotic Yanks used their cell phones etc as the WTC collapsed with 1,000's dieing and then uploaded it to youtube, didn't hear much public outcry about them uploading and making available these vids.

    Amnesty International has come out against American capital punishment, as well. If the U.S. administration does say anything about Iran's death penalty then that would be the height of hypocrisy.

    I betcha Iran has lower crime rates then most Western countries. Those against the death penalty should have to pay for the keeping of these prisoners for the rest of their life, but I doubt they really give a flying fuck to do so, bunch of hypocrites.

    Are yo really saying that you want to trade Iranian Justice system for your own? What part of Mogadishu do you live in?

    Not sure the same mentality, but non the less disturbing effect of the increasing voyageur nature of our world. Ever since Vietnam we have been conditioned to expecting to seeing death and destruction as it happens. Just can't agree with the attitude of any government sanctioning what I consider a barbaric act. Any government.

    Following that logic, those who advocate it can pay for the electricity/gas bill; the death row accommodation costs; the appeal processes; childcare and counselling of children (where applicable); compensation to families for cases of executed prisoners being later proven to be innocent (IIRC it's happened over 70 times in the US) and the hygenic disposal of human waste from the execution chamber; and the morgue for the post-execution autopsy. Execution isn't necessarily a more economical option.

    we are all figments of our own imagination.

    I generally agree, except when it comes to the British Labour Party, Guardian, Independent, TUC & BBC, and "Common Purpose" for whom, hanging is too good.

    I see nothing wrong wrong with execution for the most depraved crimes but using it for public entertainment is sickening and you got to wonder at the sanity of a culture that condones such a thing, unsurprisingly this is predominantly a Muslim cultural norm.

    I think with the likes of Ian Huntly, Levi Bellfeild, Maninder Pal Singh Kohli there is no chance of innocents being executed, and what of the justice to the victims and their families?
    Criminals rights far exceed those of their victims (in the UK) and the balance needs redressing.

    I understand what you are saying and when the death penalty was last used in the UK there were indeed injustices but times have moved on and in many cases certainty of guilt can now be proved beyond a shadow of a doubt, if you consider that the UK is now the most heavily video monitored country in the world and the advancement of DNA evidence which can eliminate all other suspects except the guilty then the death penalty seems much more viable, of course where there is ambiguity this penalty shouldn't be used.
