Hassan Mehraban Executed in Qazvin/2 Escape Gallows

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); February 3, 2024: Hassan Mehraban was executed for murder charges in Qazvin Central Prison. Two others escaped the gallows after obtaining extensions in their cases.

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, a man was executed in Qazvin Central Prison (Choobindar) on 3 February. His identity has been established as 46-year-old Hassan Mehraban who was sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder.

An informed source told Iran Human Rights: “Hassan Mehraban had killed his first wife. He’d divorced her and remarried but killed his first wife due to conflicts.”

Hassan was transferred to pre-execution solitary confinement with two other men who were returned to their cells after obtaining extensions in their cases.

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.
