According to the reports received by the “Human Rights and Democracy Advocates in Iran”, the judiciary of Vali Faghih, Mullah Ali Khamenei has commenced planning massexecution of the prisoners in Gohardasht prison.
A board has been established in Karaj Gohardasht prison within the last few weeks, headed by a person called “Najafabadi”, one of the deputies to Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi, the Tehran Attorney General. that gives some forms to the prisoners that have been convicted to death sentence and urges them to fill in the forms. In those forms in addition to the personal specifications, the major highlighted question is “Why your death sentence has not been executed yet?”.
After this the plaintiffs of the convicted to death prisoners are called on and are put under pressure to ask for execution punishment of the prisoner or pay the required costs for keeping them in prison.
There are more than 1,000 inmates awaiting execution in the Gohardasht prison of Karaj.
