According to IHR sources, on the morning of Thursday, July 25, a man was hanged at Zanjan prison. He, identified by IHR as Heshmat Imani, 34, was sentenced to death for “armed drug smuggling.”
His execution has not been announced by the Iranian authorities or media so far.
At least 110 people were executed in Iran in the first half of 2019; Only 37 of the executions have been announced by authorities or Iranian media. Iran Human Rights (IHR) could confirm 73 more through its sources. IHR only reports the unannounced executions if it could confirm those with two separate credible sources. Therefore, the actual number of executions may be even higher than reported.
