Sadegh Ajdar Executed in Yasuj

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); December 9, 2023: Sadegh Ajdar, a man sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder, was executed in Yasuj Central Prison.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Yasuj Central Prison on 4 December. His identity has been established as Sadegh Ajdar who was sentenced to qisas for murder.

Sadegh was arrested around three years ago.

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.
