According to various state-run news agencies, the public execution was carried out on Wednesday September 20 in front of a large crowd of people, including children.
The judicial process for the prisoner lasted for a total of three months before his execution was carried out. Iran Human Rights is concerned that Ismael Rangers did not receive a fair trial.
