Iran Human Rights strongly condemns the wave of executions in Iran and urges the international community to react. Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, the spokesperson of IHR, said: "We ask the world leaders and the General Secretary of the United Nations to condemn the wave of the executions and demand a stop in all executions in their dialogue with the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Death penalty is the worst kind of violence against the society and a violation of the right to life, and unfortunately Iran is on the top of the list of the countries practicing this violence."
