Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); July 14, 2023: At least two men were executed for murder charges along with Fatemeh Yousef Abadi in Rajai Shahr Prison.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, at least wo men were executed in Rajai Shahr (Gohardasht) Prison on 12 July. The two men whose identities have not been established at the time of writing were sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder.

Woman prisoner Fatemeh Yousef Abadi was also executed for murder charges at the prison that day, increasing the number of executions to three that day.

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

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.
