Iran Human Rights (IHR); February 5, 2019: A prisoner who was sentenced to death on murder charges, was hanged at Quchan prison last Wednesday.
According to IHR sources, on the morning of Wednesday, January 30, a man identified as Tabib Rouzmehr, was executed at Quchan prison.
A source close to Tabib told IHR, “two years ago, he was working for a person called Vahid who had given him a cheque for the salary. However, there was no money in the account. Tabib could not find Vahid to ask for his money but found Vahid’s brother. The brother refused to give Tabib the address and the two fought.”
Vahid’s brother fell down and bump his head to the street curb. The person died and Tabib sentenced to qisas (retribution in kind).
There is a lack of a classification of murder by degree in Iran which results in issuing a death sentence for any kind of murder regardless of intensity and intent.
