Execution of Inmate in Qazvin Central Prison

09:51 - 4 February 2024


Hengaw; Sunday, February 4rd, 2024

The death sentence of Hassan Mehraban, a 46-year-old inmate from Qazvin previously condemned for premeditated murder, was carried out in Qazvin Central Prison on the morning of Saturday, February 3rd, 2024.

The Hengaw Organization for Human Rights received a report confirming the execution of Hassan Mehraban, who had been detained on charges of premeditatedly murdering his ex-wife. The judicial system of the Islamic Republic of Iran had sentenced him to death.

It's crucial to note that, as of the time of this report, there has been no official announcement regarding the execution of Hassan Mehraban in government-sanctioned media outlets, particularly those aligned with the judiciary. The lack of official disclosure raises questions about transparency and accountability in the implementation of capital punishment within the country. The Hengaw Organization for Human Rights will continue to monitor developments related to this case.
