According to IHR sources, Hedayat Mehrabi, 37, was hanged for murder charges on the morning of April 19. A well-informed source told IHR, “Hedayat was arrested around five years ago in the city of Kermanshah for murder a person. He was sentenced to death and the verdict was upheld by the Supreme Court around two years ago.”
The aforementioned execution has not been reported by Iranian media so far.
According to the Iran Human Rights statistic department, the majority of executions in 2017 and 2018 in Iran was for murder charges. At least 188 prisoners were executed for murder charges in 2018. Only 33% of executions were announced by Iranian authorities in 2018.
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.
