Execution of Inmate at Khorramabad Prison

On April 5, 2024, Khorramabad Prison carried out the execution of an inmate found guilty of murder, as reported by the Iran Human Rights Organization.

The inmate, identified as Hassan-Ali Mirzania, aged 30, was convicted four years ago for the fatal shooting of two brothers with a hunting gun.

At present, there is no coverage of the execution from official sources or domestic media outlets within Iran. This absence of information raises significant questions regarding the transparency and accountability of the execution process.

In 2023, the Department of Statistics and Publication of Human Rights Activists in Iran registered the execution of 767 individuals. Out of these, 7 were carried out in public. Among the executed individuals whose genders were identified, 21 were female. Additionally, 2 juvenile offenders, defined as individuals under the age of 18 at the time of their alleged crimes, were also executed. For a comprehensive examination of the details and statistics surrounding the executions in Iran, refer to HRANA’s annual report.
