Shahram Mohammadbeigi Executed in Ilam

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); November 28, 2023: A man named Shahram Mohammadbeigi has been executed for murder charges in Ilam Central Prison.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Ilam Central Prison on 28 November. His identity has been established as Shahram Mohammadbeigi, a 38-year-old man sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder.

Informed sources told Iran Human Rights: “Shahram Mohammadbeigi was a cross-country runner who’d won medals. He was arrested for the murder of his friend around three years ago and sentenced to qisas.

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.
