NCRI - In the latest series of brutal and inhuman punishments being carried out by the clerical regime in Iran, henchmen in a prison in the northwestern city of Mashhad amputated a man’s hand.
The victim, a 30-year man, whose identity has not been revealed, had been sentenced to the amputation of one hand for theft.
According to a report by state-run Mashreq News, the sentence was carried out early on the morning of December 30.
The amputation was carried after “the head of judiciary in Khorasan Razavi province had stressed on firmly executing verdicts by the judiciary”.
The United Nations General Assembly last month slammed the violations of human rights by the Iranian regime.
The resolution criticized the Iranian regime's use of inhuman punishments, including flogging and amputations.
The UN’s 61st resolution also censured the mullahs’ dictatorship ruling Iran for the rise in executions, public executions and execution of juveniles.
In this resolution, the UNGA condemned the Iranian regime for cruel, inhumane and degrading punishments, especially the flogging and amputation of limbs and hands.
The Iranian regime unveiled a terrifying device in 2013 that they use to chop off fingers. The device that looks like something devised for a grisly horror movie operates as a circular saw that guillotines prisoners’ fingers.
Since Hassan Rouhani became president of the clerical regime some 1,200 have been executed and hundreds more have been subjected to degrading and inhumane punishments such as amputation, flogging in public and being paraded in streets.
The Iranian Resistance has repeatedly condemned the carrying out of medieval punishments by the clerical regime in Iran and has called for referral of the regime's violations of human rights record to the United Nations Security Council.
