According to IHR sources, a man was hanged at Shiraz prison (known as Adel-Abad) for murder charged on August 18, 2019.

IHR can confirm his identity as Amin Zanganeh. The Execution is not announced by the Iranian authorities so far.

Sources told IHR that Amin was in prison for four years before his execution was carried out.

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.

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.
