ICBPS- The Islamic Republic’s authorities in Iran hanged four ethnic Arab detainees arrested during the November 2019 widespread protests in Iran.
The Islamic judiciary executed them in Ahvaz, the capital of Khuzestan province on Sunday February 28, 2021.
Four ethnic Arabs Ali Khasarji, Hossein Silavi, Nasser Khafajian, and Jasem Haydari were hanged for allegedly carrying out armed attacks according to the rights groups.
The Islamic Intelligence agents called the relatives of the prisoners and told them to go to Ahvaz Sepidar prison to briefly meet with their loved ones. But they were not notified that the prisoners were going to be executed the next day.

“The prisoners were brought to meet them in shackles,” families said.

The Iranian Crown Prince, Reza Pahlavi has again come out in support of the minorities, writing on his Twitter account: “While the world is held hostage by Khamenei’s nuclear blackmail, he continues his murderous campaign against Iranians. Today his regime killed four political prisoners who were tortured & denied due process. Their families were not notified until after they had been put to death.”

Three of the executed prisoners had been kept in solitary confinements since late March 2020 after riots broke out in two prisons in the oil-rich Khuzestan province — wardens killed several prisoners during the riots, and a number of others lost their lives in a blaze.
