Baluch Mansour Narouyi Executed in Gonbad Kavous

Iran Human Rights (IHRNGO); April 29, 2024: Mansour Narouyi, a Baluch man on death row for murder, was executed in Gonbad Kavous Prison.

According to Haalvsh, a Baluch man was executed in Gonbad Kavous Prison on 28 April. His identity has been reported as 36-year-old Mansour Narouyi who was sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder. He was a father of three from the village of Kamal Abad and was able to say goodbye to his family in a final prison visit the day prior to execution.

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, the victim’s family are required to choose between death as retribution, diya (blood money) or forgiveness.

In 2023, at least 282 people including two juvenile offenders and 15 women, were executed for murder charges, the second highest number of qisas executions since 2010. Only 20% of the recorded qisas executions were announced by official sources. In 2023, Iran Human Rights also recorded 857 cases of families choosing diya or forgiveness instead of qisas executions.
