Execution is a tool of repression and intimidation of the society in Iran
The heads of the government use execution as the most important tool to suppress and intimidate society. By increasing the number of executions, they are trying to prevent the rise of uprisings again. The heads of the government severely suppress any gathering related to condemning the executions and even prevent the gathering of the families of the prisoners sentenced to death.
