Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); July 13, 2022: Farzad Garavand and Mohammad Hatami who were sentenced to death for moharebeh for an armed robbery, were executed in Karaj Penitentiary this morning.
According to Rokna quoting the Alborz Province Chief Justice, two men sentenced to moharebeh (enmity against god) through an armed robbery, were executed in Karaj Penitentiary.
While the report does not name the men or specify their date of execution, Iran Human Rights has established their identities as 27-year-old Farzad Garavand and 28-year-old Mohammad Hatami who were executed on July 13.
Iran Human Rights had previously warned of their imminent execution after they were transferred to solitary confinement in preparation for the gallows.
An informed source previously told Iran Human Rights: “Mohammad Hatami was a shepherd in a village with two small children. They told him he could earn good money by accompanying them on a trip somewhere. He was tricked into the armed robbery. Mohammad and Farzad Garavand were arrested on charges of armed robbery with several other people around ten months ago. No gold was stolen from the gold shop and nobody was scratched but they want to execute them now.”
