Ali Asghar Khalili Executed for Murder in Isfahan

Ali Asghar Khalili, a man sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder, was executed in Isfahan Central Prison.

According to Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Isfahan Central Prison on July 13. His identity has been established as 37-year-old Ali Asghar (Amir) Khalili who was arrested around four years ago and sentenced to qisas for murder.

Iran Human Rights previously reported the execution of Amirhossein Abadi for murder charges at the prison that day.

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.
