Death-row Prisoner Hanged in Northern Iran

Iran Human Rights (IHR) February 1, 2020: A death-row prisoner was hanged at the northern Iranian city of Rasht on January 30, 2020. 

According to IHR sources, prisoner Mohsen Khojasteh (42) was hanged on Thursday, January 30, at the central prison of the northern Iranian city of Rasht. 

“He was sentenced to death three years ago for murdering his wife’s boyfriend with a firearm,” a well-informed source told IHR. 

In 2019, most of the executions in Iran were carried out for murder charges.
