According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, on Wednesday morning, an inmate currently unidentified was executed. He was sentenced to death five years ago for committing murder and had been in jail since then.
According to an informed source, the inmate could not afford to pay “blood money” to the victim’s family in order to exact satisfaction. Because of this, he was ultimately executed.
