Shahram Ali Abbasi Executed in Gorgan

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); November 10, 2023: Shahram Ali Abbasi, a man sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder, was executed in Gorgan Central Prison.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Gorgan Central Prison on 8 November. His identity has been established as 38-year-old Shahram Ali Abbasi from Langroud.

Per IHRNGO sources, he was arrested for murder charges and sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind).

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, as the plaintiffs, the victim’s family are required to choose between death as retribution, diya (blood money) or forgiveness.
