According to Rokna, the execution was announced by Iranian judiciary authorities. However, neither the name of the prisoner nor the place of execution was not revealed. The prisoner was executed for murder. The crime happened around six years ago at a village near Farouj, North Khorasan province but the verdict was carried out in Khorasan Razavi province.

Farouj city’s chief prosecutor told the crime had happened during a gang fight in which a 30 years old man was killed.

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.
