Execution of Four Prisoners Charged with Moharebeh

Iran Human Rights (Jan 2 2018): The official media finally confirmed the execution of four prisoners who were charged with Moharebeh for robbery after two weeks.

According to Rokna News Agency, four prisoners were hanged at Rajai Shahr Prison on the charge of Moharebeh. The report doesn’t mention the time of the execution.

Iran Human Rights (IHR) had earlier reported the execution of these prisoners on Wednesday December 20. At least 8 more prisoners were executed at Rajai Shahr Prison on the same day. One of the prisoners who had returned to his cell by asking for time had told us that, “The four prisoners were not among the other death-row prisoners, who were executed at Rajai Shahr Prison, and were transferred to an unknown place one hour earlier.”

Three of the prisoners were identified as Moslem Mohammadi, Mohsen Kamali, and Abolfazl.
