Iran once again resume execution of Afghan prisoners

By Sajad - Tue May 29 2012, 8:44 pm

Afghan senators expressed concerns regarding the situation of Afghan prisoners in Iran and said that Iran has once again resumed hanging Afghan prisoners in this country.

The senators further added at least 4 Afghan prisoners have been hanged in Iran during the past one and half week and their bodies have not been handed over to Afghanistan yet.

In the meantime a number of Afghan senators said Iran failed to prevent approval of Afghanistan-US strategic pact and therefore wants to avenge by hanging Afghan prisoners.

The issue of Afghan prisoners being sentenced to death in Iran has created concerns among the Afghans and political parties however the Afghan government has not taken any step to resolve the issue of Afghan prisoners.

Recently Afghan House of Representatives also passed a legislation that would allow the transfer of Afghan prisoners with the neighboring countries however it seems that the Afghan government has not reached to an agreement with the Iranian government so far.

An Afghan parliament member who visited Iran to resolve the issues of the Afghan prisoners upon his arrival said the Iranian government had agreed to hand over Afghan prisoners whose legal cases have been finalized but none of the prisoners have been handed over to Afghanistan yet.

According to reports around 2,000 Afghans have been jailed in Iran over drugs smuggle and other criminal charges and more than 250 Afghan prisoners are facing death penalties.

  1. I don’t think that there be any link between Afghan criminals execution in Iran and US and AFghanistan’s Strategic pact, these people committed crime and according to Iran’s law they will be executed,Iran do execute her own people as well when they commit a crime, like killing or drugs smuggling.

  2. Yes indeed this is Iran “s law. But we are talking about afghans and not iraniers. Where is the evidence that this people committed a crime we want to see this first. I hope that a revolution takes place in Iran inshallah

    1. What revolution? They already had an islamic revolution and majority of the people are happy.. only like 10-20% people are not happy and thats because of things like Islamic rulings such as hijab, death penalty, no alcohol and such.

      I assure you Zohra the proper evidence was provided and they had a fair trial. Also when you say they are Afghans and not Iranian does that mean I can go to a different country break their law and be asked to not be judged by their legal system?? Unfortunately it just doesn’t work this way.

      Lastly it is sad to see soo much hate towards Iran.. Understand that now in this day it is the only ISLAMIC country that stands up to the West, stands up and supports Palestine, and its leaders themselves also follow Islam. I mean look at the country that is the home of Kabaa, Saudi Arabia, selling oil at dirt to USA while the USA bombs Muslims, never standing up against Israel, and buying F16s from the states to support the US economy.
