An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
In the latest public execution in Iran, a 30-year-old man has been hanged in Shiraz, in the south of the country.
Accused of armed robbery over a year ago, Allah Gholi has been awaiting his execution.
Oddly, it doesn’t say he was CONVICTED of the crime, only accused.
Public hangings are becoming almost a daily occurrence in Iran and in the month of July alone 30 executions were carried out.
In some cases, I would be all for ‘public executions’. Child predators would be one.
Iran has carried out more than 150 executions to date this year compared to 177 in 2006.
It makes one wonder just why the increase. Are those executed actually guilty of the crime of which they are accused, or is this a political push to rid themselves of dissidents?
The killings have prompted outrage in some Western nations and Italy recently appealed to Iran to halt the executions on humanitarian grounds.
Perhaps there has been some ‘outrage’, but I sure haven’t heard much about it.
Tehran told Rome not to interfere in Iran’s internal matters
Did anyone expect Ahmabooboo to actually listen to what the ‘infidels’ have to say?
Looks a tad staged, with the hand holding and all. I thought such PDA was against the law?
