On January 18, an inmate previously convicted for murder was executed in Adel-Abad Prison in Shiraz City. Yesterday, he had been relocated to a solitary confinement cell as procedure for carrying out the execution. Also last Sunday, an inmate who was convicted for murder was executed in Khorramabad Prison.
According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, the inmate executed in Adel-Abad Prison was identified as Sajjad (surname unknown). Three and a half years ago, he was accused of and arrested for murder.
“In a group fight, where the police agents were also involved, one man was killed. They accused him of murder despite the fact that Sajjad had a rifle and the victim was shot dead by a colt. He never accepted this accusation,” according to an informed source.
According to Iran Human Rights Organization, last Sunday, another inmate was executed in Khorramabad Prison. He has been identified as Moslem Aghamirzai, 30 years old.
“Moslem was a building painter who two years ago killed a man in a fight to protect his friend’s sister.”
Neither of these executions have announced by judicial authorities or reported by media inside Iran.
