Official confirms secret mass executions in Mashhad

State-run news agency – The Pubic and Revolutionary Prosecutor in Mashhad said that foreign media exaggerate the execution of drug smugglers in Vakil Abad Prison in Mashhad.

“Foreign and anti-revolutionary websites have maneuvered around the [reports of these executions] while they have keep in mind that in light of the fact that Khorasan Razavi is neighbors with Afghanistan, this province is a transit for narcotics”, Mahmoud Zoqi said…

“According to the anti-Narcotics Law, possessing, buying and selling more than 30 grams of heroin carries the death sentences. This is while the amount of narcotics brought into the province is high and naturally the implementation of the death sentence is also high”.

The Mashhad Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor said that in the current [Persian year], death sentences were carried out in five phases. (ISNA state-run news agency – Jun. 24, 2011)
