Farzad Golmohammadi Executed in Sanandaj

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); December 20, 2023: Farzad Golmohammadi was executed for murder charges in Sanandaj Central Prison.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Sanandaj Central Prison on 20 December. His identity has been established as 32-year-old Farzad Golmohammadi from a village in Kamyaran.

He was sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder by the Criminal Court.

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.
