Iran Human Rights (IHR); July 28, 2019: A prisoner was hanged at Shiraz Central Prison (known as Adel Abad) for murder charges a week ago.
According to HRANA, around a week ago, a man was executed at Shiraz Central Prison (known as Adel Abad). He, identified as Arash Shah-hosseini, was sentenced to death for murder charges. He was arrested three years ago for killing a man during a fight.
His execution has not been announced by the Iranian authorities or media so far.
At least 110 people were executed in Iran in the first half of 2019; Only 37 of the executions have been announced by authorities or Iranian media. Iran Human Rights (IHR) could confirm 73 more through its sources. IHR only reports the unannounced executions if it could confirm those with two separate credible sources. Therefore, the actual number of executions may be even higher than reported.
