Iran Human Rights (IHR); June 14, 2019: A man hanged at Gorgan prison for murder charges last Sunday.
According to HRANA, on the early morning of June 9, Hashem Amiri, 47, was executed at the northern Iranian city of Gorgan’s prison. He was a father of three kids.
“Hashem Amiri was a worker at a shopping centre four years ago. At that time, he fought with a shop owner and hit his head with a rod. The shop owner was killed and Hashem was sentenced to death,” a well-informed source said.
The aforementioned execution has not been announced by Iranian authorities or media so far.
There is a lack of a classification of murder by degree in Iran which results in issuing a death sentence for any kind of murder regardless of intensity and intent.
