2 Unidentified Men Executed in Karaj

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); October 26, 2023: State media have reported the execution of two unidentified men for murder in Ghezel Hesar Prison.

According to Hamshahri Online, two men were executed in Ghezel Hesar Prison in Karaj on 25 October. The unidentified men were sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder.

One of the men was accused of killing two women after a financial dispute on 19 October 2018. The second man was also accused of killing a woman in the summer of 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, as the plaintiffs, the victim’s family are required to choose between death as retribution, diya (blood money) or forgiveness.
