On Monday, the European Union joined the voices condemning Iran's execution of wrestler Nawid Afkar, who was convicted of killing a government employee during anti-government demonstrations in the south of the country in 2018.

"The European Union condemns this execution in the strongest terms," ​​a European Commission spokesman, Peter Stano, said in a statement.

"Human rights remain an essential component of our engagement with Iran. We will continue to communicate with the Iranian authorities on this issue (...) in addition to the separate issues," AFP quoted Stanoe as saying.

Analogous to this last execution

The European official affirmed that "the European Union opposes the death penalty in all circumstances and cases without exception."

"This is a brutal, inhuman punishment that does not have any deterrent effects and represents an unacceptable annulment of human dignity and integrity," he said.

The London-based Amnesty International saw the "secret execution" of my ideas on Saturday as "a horrific farce of justice that needs immediate international action."

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemned the execution, which he considered "brutal."
