Ali Poursiamak Executed in Neishabur

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); December 19, 2023: Ali Poursiamak who was sentenced to death for murder charges, was executed in Neishabur Prison.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Neishabur Prison on 18 December. His identity has been established as 37-year-old Ali Poursiamak who was sentenced to qisas(retribution-in-kind) for murder.

Ali was a farmer who was arrested for murder during a fight over farmland.

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.
