Iran Human Rights (IHR); December 7, 2019: A prisoner was hanged at the central prison of the central Iranian city of Yazd for murder charges Thursday.
According to Baluchi Activists Campaign, prisoner Abdossatar Dehmordeh was hanged at Yazd Prison on December 5, 2019. He was sentenced to death for murder charges four years ago.
Out of the 110 people who were executed in the first half of 2019, 83 were sentenced to qisas (retribution in-kind) for murder.
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.
