Last Friday, a 26-year-old prisoner accused of rape was publicly executed in the town of Lar. According to a statement issued by his attorney, the woman who filed the rape charge recanted three days later, and the court rejected the charges. Despite this and the lack of any evidence against him, the man was still executed publicly.
