Man hanged at Borujerd prison in Iran

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.
