Select Language:

According to Rokna, on the morning of Thursday, April 18, three prisoners were executed at Ilam prison. All were sentenced to death for murder charges. More details have not been revealed by Iranian authorities or 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.
