In two isolated incidents, three citizens were sentenced to death in Tehran, all on charges of murder.
According to the HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, quoting Rokna news, death sentences were upheld by the Supreme Court for two defendants who were sentenced under the Qisas (loosely translated as eye-for-an-eye) principle of Shariah Law.
The sentence was issued after 37-year-old Meysam, a shopkeeper, was stabbed to death in Varamin in Tehran.
In a separate incident, according to the Javanonline News, a defendant was sentenced to death for murder under the Qisas principle by the criminal court in Tehran province.
The victim’s wife and two murder suspects, all suspected of orchestrating the killing, were also sentenced to prison time.
