Three Inmates Executed in Torbat-e-Jam and Zahedan

On November 14, two inmates convicted of drug-related crimes were executed in Torbat-e-Jam Prison, Razavi Khorasan Province. Moreover, an inmate convicted of murder was executed in Zahedan Province.

According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, quoting Rasank News, Torbat-e-Jam Prison officials executed Mohammad-Nabi Soleimani, age 31, and Abdollah Soofi.

An informed source claimed that “in June 2019, these individuals were arrested by border police while returning home with a cab. Based on false reports, the police agents arrested them without finding any drugs in the vehicle. After a few days, the police set them up with a small consignment of drugs, claiming that it belongs to them.”

Haal Vsh also reported the execution of an inmate identified as Esmail Faghirdadzehi, age 27, in Zahedan Prison on November 15. He was convicted of killing someone during a fight in 2016.
None of the official sources and media outlets inside the country has reported these executions.
