According to the IHR sources, on April 30, 2019, Seyyed Samad Enayati was hanged at Zanjan prison for murder charges. He was from the Iranian city of Bijar and executed at the age of 31.

Seyyed Samad Enayati was a plumber. According to one of his relatives, “Five years ago, he did all of the pipe-works of a building. However, he did not receive any money from the contractor. He fought with the contractor and the man was killed during the fighting. Seyyed Samad told the court that he did not want to kill the man.”

His execution was unannounced by authorities and can be classified under “unannounced and secret executions” in Iran.

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.

According to the Iran Human Rights statistic department, at least 273 people were executed in Iran in 2018. At least 188 of them executed for murder charges.
