“Justice Minister carried out today the death sentence against 42 terrorists involved in different cases,” Dhi Qar Governor Yehia al-Naseri said during a press conference attended by Justice Minister Haidar al-Zamli and several military leaders.
“Local government will not, starting today, keep any terrorist with death sentence at al-Hout prison.”
The governorate, according to Naseri, “urged the prime minister to swiftly ratify the death sentence against inmates at Naseriya central prison.”
