Shahbaz Latifi Sarini Executed in Kermanshah

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); November 16, 2023: Shahbaz Latifi Sarini, a man sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder, was executed in Kermanshah Central Prison.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Kermanshah Central Prison on 13 November. His identity has been established as 37-year-old Shahbaz Latifi Sarini who was sentenced to qisas for murder.

An informed source told IHRNGO: “Shahbaz Latifi was accused of killing his wife and a police officer with an AK47 two years ago. He was a father of a young child.”

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.
