According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Karaj Penitentiary in Karaj Penitentiary on 8 October. His identity has been established as 38-year-old Mehrab Sintab who was sentenced to qisas for murder.

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.
