Confirmed: Iranian Regime Used Boy to Push Chair Out During Public Hanging

The Iranian regime used a boy to push the chair out during a public hanging this week in the city of Qazvin, west of Tehran.
This photo was reportedly taken during the hanging.

Iranian officials purportedly allowed a young boy to perform one of the public hangings.
There were some concerns that the photo may have been doctored.

It wasn’t. The photo is real.
I found the original at the Iranian Borna News website.

A young boy was used to draw the chair Mehdi was standing on.
