According to Rokna, on the morning of Wednesday, April 24, a man was hanged at the Iranian northern city of Babol’s prison. His identity was not revealed and his name was mentioned as “A.GH” in the news. He was sentenced to death for murdering a man around five years ago.
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.
