Inmate Executed in Adelabad Prison for Drug Offenses

On Sunday, July 7, a death-row inmate convicted of drug-related charges was executed in Adelabad Prison, Shiraz, as reported by Kurdpa.

His identity has been reported as “Mojtaba Karami, 28 years old, from Harsin, a county in Kermanshah Province.”

The report states: “This prisoner was arrested about three and a half years ago on drug-related charges and was subsequently sentenced to death by the judiciary.”

No official sources or domestic media outlets within the country have provided coverage of these executions at the time of writing. In 2023, 66% of HRANA’s reports on executions lacked official announcements by judicial authorities and went unreported by media inside Iran, highlighting a troubling lack of transparency in due process.

According to data compiled by HRANA, in 2023, Adelabad Prison carried out 49 executions, ranking five among prisons across Iran. For a comprehensive examination of the details and statistics surrounding the executions in Iran, refer to HRANA’s report.
