Inmate Executed in Dizelabad Prison in Kermanshah City

On Sunday, an inmate convicted for murder was executed in Dizelabad Prison in Kermanshah City.

According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, quoting Kurdpa, the inmate was identified as Mosayeb Faraji, a resident of Islamabad.

Reportedly, two years ago, he was arrested and charged with committing murder and subsequently was sentenced to death by judicial authorities.

The execution has not been announced by judicial authorities or reported by media inside Iran.

The most recent report from the Statistics and Publication Center of the Human Rights Activists in Iran (HRA) states that between January 1 of 2021 and December 20 of 2021, at least 299 citizens, including four juvenile offenders, were executed. In addition, 85 citizens were sentenced to death in this period.

As the report points out, Iran’s judicial authorities do not publicly announce over 88% of executions. These unreported executions are known as “secret executions” by human rights organizations.
