The heads of the government use execution as the most important tool to suppress and intimidate the society. By increasing the number of executions, they are trying to prevent the rise of uprisings again. The heads of the government severely repress any gathering related to condemning the executions. They also prevent the gathering of the families of prisoners sentenced to death.
The execution of prisoners on drug charges carried out in Iran’s prisons in a situation where the drug cartels are run and managed by the Revolutionary Guards.
