Unidentified Man Executed in Tabriz

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); November 9, 2023: State media have reported the execution of a man only identified as Akbar for murder in Tabriz Central Prison.

According to Rokna, a man was executed in Tabriz Central Prison in the last week. The man only named as Akbar was sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder by the Criminal Court.

He had allegedly killed someone during a group fight on 7 August 2019.

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.
