Mohsen Norouzi Executed for Murder in Rasht

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); June 16, 2022: Mohsen Norouzi, a man sentenced to retribution for murder, was executed in Rasht Central Prison today.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Rasht Central Prison on the morning of 16 June. His identity has been established as 24-year-old Mohsen Norouzi who was sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder.

At the time of writing, his execution has not been reported by domestic media or officials in Iran.

According to data gathered by Iran Human Rights, at least 183 people were executed on murder charges in 2021. Those charged with the umbrella term of “intentional murder” are sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) regardless of intent or circumstances due to a lack of grading in law. Once a defendant has been convicted, the victim’s family are required to choose between death as retribution, diya (blood money) or forgiveness.
