January 23 januari were in the prison of Qazvin 3 men hanged.
The men, K Kh. (28), A. N. (34) and A. H. (41), were sentenced to fines, lashes and death for possession and trafficking of drugs.

30 humanrights organizations released a joint statement expressing "deep concern" about the imminent execution of five Ahwazi Arab activists and have urged the international community and human rights organizations to take immediate action.
The 5 Ahwazi are:
Jaber Alboshoka, 28, holds an associate degree in computer sciences and is a private in the military, Mokhtar Alboshoka,26, works at a stone mining company,Hadi Rashedi,39 holds a masters degree in applied chemistry and is a chemistry teacher, Hashem Shabaninejad,32 n Arabic literature teacher and a masters student of political science at Ahwaz University,and Mohammad Ali Amourinejad,34 a Fisheries engineer and school teacher.
These five men are the founders and active members of Al-Hiwar (dialogue)—scientific-cultural institute who had mass arrests of its members in February 2011. They were interrogated and tortured by agents of the Ministry of Information.
They were accused of moharebeh (waging war with God) and terrorism, however the defendants maintain that the confessions obtained from them are false confessions obtained under torture.

On Monday, a group of Iranian MPs visited the notorious Evin prison, Iran's biggest jail for political prisoners.
Unlike the political prisoners, most of which were arrested after 2009. and which in recent years have complained about the abuses in the Evinprison, an MP said that after this tour that he now only about "Hotel Evin" would speak.
Last month, 20 prisoners wrote an open letter to the head of the prison in which they criticised him for allegedly not letting sick inmates receive proper treatment.
