Two Inmates Executed for Murder in Ilam Prison

Two Inmates Executed for Murder in Ilam Prison

Ilam prison executed two inmates on March 11, 2024, following separate murder convictions, as reported by Kurdpa.

The executed individuals are identified as Mansour Mansouri, 44 years old, and Moein Selah Varzi, a father of two. Selah Varzi was convicted of killing his brother 32 years ago.

No official sources or domestic media outlets within the country have provided coverage of these executions at the time of writing. The lack of official information raises concerns about transparency and accountability. 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.

Moreover, in 2023, the Department of Statistics and Publication of Human Rights Activists in Iran registered the execution of  746 individuals. Out of these, 6 were carried out in public. Among the executed individuals whose genders were identified, 597 were male and 20 were female. Additionally, 2 juvenile offenders, defined as individuals under the age of 18 at the time of their alleged crimes, were also executed. For a comprehensive examination of the details and statistics surrounding the executions in Iran, refer to HRANA’s annual report.
