That this House is deeply concerned by the increasing number of executions in Iran, where 600 people have been executed in 2012, including many in public; notes that two men, aged 20 and 23, accused of stealing the equivalent of 35 euros, were hanged brutally in public on 16 January 2013 in front of their terrified family members and their horrified and crying young sisters; further notes that thousands of prisoners are on death row including political prisoners from Kurdish, Balouch and Arab ethnic minorities, those affiliated with the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI) and even prisoners under the age of 18; further notes three political prisoners were killed under torture in December 2012; further notes that Mr Gholamreza Khosravi, a PMOI supporter whose death sentence has been upheld by the regime's Supreme Court, could face execution at any moment and that Mr Khosravi has been charged with providing financial support to an opposition satellite TV channel; further notes that Iran's leaders and high ranking judiciary, military and intelligence officials are responsible for the execution of more than 120,000 political prisoners, including the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988; and urges the Government to condemn in the strongest terms torture and executions in Iran and to take urgent measures to stop this criminal trend.
