Individuals may be arrested and indefinitely detained without charge or on trumped-up offenses; subject to degrading treatment, including torture, in order to extract confessions; denied rights such as access to legal counsel and fair and speedy trial; and sentenced to other barbaric penalties such as amputation, blinding, and flogging. Those accused and/or convicted of perpetrating crimes are incarcerated in overcrowded prisons where they may be subject to torture, rape, and other atrocities.
With the nationwide increase of population protests in 2019 in Iran, the mullah regime has increased repression and in August 2021 installed Ebrahim Raisi as the president of the Iranian regime, who was one of the main perpetrators of the massacre of 30,000 imprisoned human rights activists in 1988, in order to spread fear and terror with him and to suppress the population protests in which the courageous Iranian women hold a crucial role. Currently, many imprisoned Iranian women are in danger of execution.
