Inmate Executed in Qazvin Prison

On Saturday, June 22, a prisoner previously sentenced to death for murder was executed in Qazvin Prison, according to Iran Human Rights Organization.

His identity has been reported as Nategh Hosseini, 36, from Qazvin.
According to the report, three years ago, Nateg Hosseini accidentally committed murder during a fight and was sentenced to death by the judiciary.

The report states that the victim’s family requested that Nateg Hosseini’s seven-year-old child be present at the time of execution. Nateg’s family agreed and brought the child with them hoping that the presence of the child would increase the chances of the victim’s family granting clemency. However, the execution was ultimately carried out in the presence of his young child.
