(Mar 02, 2008) According to a directive issued by Iran's Chief of the Judiciary, no convicted criminal may be executed in public without the prior approval of the Head of the Judiciary, based on social requirements. The directive forbids publication of the photos of the execution procedure in the mass media. Public and Revolutionary prosecutors are responsible to see that the instructions issued regarding the execution of convicted criminals are fully observed.
