According to IHR sources, on the morning of November 5, prisoner Karam Sedghi was hanged at the central prison of Borujerd city, Lorestan province.
“He killed a person by a firearm four years ago. It was an honour killing case,” a well-informed source told IHR.
Out of the 110 people who were executed in the first half of 2019, 83 were sentenced to qisas (retribution in-kind) for murder.
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.
