Human Rights in Iran – Monday, October 3, 2022 – At least 5 prisoners accused of drug-related crimes were executed in Mashhad Central Prison.

According to the report of Human Rights in Iran, at dawn on Saturday, October 1, 2022, five prisoners charged with drug-related offenses were executed at Vakilabad Prison in Mashhad, the capital of Khorasan-e Razavi Province.

“The charges against all five prisoners were related to drug offenses and they were transferred to solitary confinement a few days ago for the enforcement of the sentence”, an informed source told the reporter of Human Rights in Iran.

The identities of the five prisoners have not been determined so far.

The execution of the prisoners has not been announced by the media inside Iran or by official sources, until this announcement has been made.

After the appointment of Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ezhe’ei as the head of the judiciary and his claim to speed up the execution of old cases and as a result the execution of death sentences with the aim of reducing the country’s criminal crimes, this process lead to the protest of Amnesty International by publishing a report on 27th June, 2022, explaining the situation of the implementation of death sentences in the first 6 months of 2022 in Iran.

Due to the lack of transparency of the Iranian authorities, it is difficult to find out the actual number of executions in this country, and the number is certainly much higher than the announced figure.

Issuing and executing death sentences violates international human rights documents, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the provisions of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
