Iran Human Rights (IHR); February 14, 2021: Saeed Ali-Mohammadi, a prisoner sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder, has been executed at Nour Prison, Mazandaran.
According to Rokna, a male prisoner was executed at Nour Prison on the morning of Sunday, February 14. The identity of the prisoner who was sentenced to qisas (retribution-in kind) for murder, has only been reported as S.A by Rokna.
Iran Human Rights’ informed sources have established the prisoner’s identity as Saeed Ali-Mohammadi.
Saeed Ali-Mohammadi was accused of committing murder during a street fight a few years ago.
According to Iran Human Rights’ annual report, at least 225 of the 280 of those executed in 2019 were charged with "premeditated murder."
As there are no legal distinctions made between murder and manslaughter, whether voluntary or involuntary in Iran, those charged under the umbrella term of “premeditated murder” will receive the death penalty regardless of intent and the circumstances.
