Executions in Iran have escalated during Rouhani Presidency

According to the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center, at least 529 people have been executed in Iran this year, and more than 300 of the executions took place after Hassan Rouhani ascended to the Presidency in August. Other estimates put the number of executions in Iran, this year, at more than 600.

Iran activists also point out that executions in Iran have increased markedly since the Obama administration and the Iranian regime began its most recent faze of negotiations, which concluded with a deal to give the Mullocracy the green light to enrich uranium while easing sanctions against them.
