Amnesty International, 12-6-2020.

The Iranian authorities must immediately halt imminent plans to amputate the fingers of six men convicted of robbery following unfair trials and torture-tainted “confessions”, said Amnesty International in a detailed analysisreleased today.

The analysis reveals horrific figures, provided to the organization by a human rights group, Abdorrahman Boroumand Center, that over the past two decades, on average, the Iranian authorities have amputated the fingers of at least one person every two months and flogged at least two people every week.
