Iran HRM: Continuation of Death Sentences in Iran, March 2022

Iran Human Rights Monitor (Iran HRM) has published its report on executions in March 2022. This report focused specifically on executions for various charges across Iran.

Below is an excerpt of the report:

With 39 executions carried out in March 2022, the Iranian regime demonstrated its flagrant assault on human rights and the right to life.

Statistics compiled by the Iran Human Rights Monitor may be far higher as a lack of transparency makes it difficult to confirm the real total number of executions.

These executions were carried out in Zanjan, Dastgerd Isfahan, Rajai Shahr, Adelabad Shiraz, Dezful, Miandoab, Khash, Zahedan, Urmia and Qazvin prisons.

Drug-related executions
On March 2, a man identified as Akbar Shahsvand, 36, was executed in Isfahan’s Dastgerd prison. He was sentenced to death on “drug” charges.
On March 13, the death sentence of six drug offenders was carried out in Adelabad Prison in Shiraz. Three of the victims were identified as Najaf Anjem Rooz, Jamshid Fadai and Hossein Mehrabani, 37, from Jahrom. Najaf Anjem Rooz was an Afghan national who had been in prison for about 5 years.

Executions on murder charges
On March 2, five men were taken to the gallows in Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj to serve their death sentences. Two of them, Vahid Mousavi and Vahid Tabatabai, who had been sentenced to qisas (an eye for an eye or retribution in-kind) were hanged and the execution of the other three was called off.
On the same day the death sentence of another convicted murderer named Yousef Hashemi was carried out in Qazvin Central Prison. Yousef Hashemi was the father of a child and his job was to repair alternators and car batteries before his arrest. He spent more than four years on death tow.
At least three men, Gholam-Ali Khavargir, Abbas Khavargir, and Mohsen Jandaghi, were executed also on March 16, in Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj. The three men were detained for 20 years on charges of “murder” during armed robber.

Iran HRM at the end of the report, writes: ”Iran Human Rights Monitor once again calls on the Secretary-General, the High Commissioner and the UN Human Rights Council, the European Union and its member states, to condemn executions in Iran and to take immediate action to save the lives of prisoners on death row”.

Iran HRM continued: “The Iranian regime’s dossier of systematic human rights violations must be referred to the UN Security Council, and the top regime officials must be brought to justice for four decades of rights violations and crimes against humanity”.
