US ambassador called out Iran after regime hanged gay man in public

United States Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell called out Iran after the country publicly hanged a 31-year-old man after he allegedly violated anti-gay laws:

From the Jerusalem Post:

The ISNA reported that the 31-year-old kidnapped two 15-year-olds. The opaque inner workings of Iran’s judicial system create enormous difficulties for journalists and human rights advocates to examine judicial cases.

“The LGBT community in Iran has lived in terror for the last 40 years,” said Alireza Nader, CEO of Washington, DC-based research and advocacy organization New Iran. “Next time Foreign Minister Zarif speaks in Washington, the host and audience should ask him why his regime is one of the top executioner of gays in the world.”

Grenell also called on “our European allies” to “speak up”:

Hopefully, they step up.
