Political prisoner executed in Oroumieh, Iran

The Iranian regime executed a political prisoner in the northwestern city of Oroumieh on Saturday January 15, according to reports.

Hossein Khezri was hanged without the prior knowledge of his family or lawyer. 

He was taken to an unknown location two weeks ago. Three other political prisoners and cellmates staged a hunger strike in protest to the relocation. Following Mr. Khezri’s execution, they said they would continue with the hunger strike.
