Unnamed Man Executed in Kerman

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); November 8, 2023: State media have reported the execution of an unnamed man for murder in Kerman Central Prison.

According to the judiciary’s Mizan news agency, a man was executed in Kerman Central Prison on 8 November. The unnamed man was sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder by the Criminal Court.

He had allegedly set fire to a residential building, causing the death of seven people and injuring three.

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.
