Iran Stops Public Executions
By Micah Halpern

Thursday January 31, 2008

I've Been Thinking:

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Iran issued a public statement yesterday. There will be no more public executions in Iran without his written permission.

No more public executions without the permission of the Chief Justice does not mean that there will be no more executions.
Executions will continue, just not publicly. Executions, the Chief Justice made clear, will continue to take place behind the walls of prisons in Iran.
The most common form of execution in Iran is hanging.
But they also decapitate.

In Iran it's all about international public image.
The Chief Justice is trying to "spin" some of the awful PR Iran has received.
The Iranian understanding of the world is so warped that they truly think this statement is positive, that it will actually improve their image.

Today in Iran's notorious Evin Prison they executed five people.
That's Iran for you.
