2015 Annual Report: Darkest Year For Executions As Iran's Isolation Ends
The 8th annual report on the death penalty in Iran shows that the Islamic Republic of Iran had one of the darkest years of its history with reference to the number of executions. On average between two and three people were hanged every single day in 2015. This stands in contrast to the fact that 2015 also was the year when the Islamic Republic of Iran emerged out of several years of isolation. IHR calls on the international community to puts Iran's horrifying death penalty record on the agenda.
