Two Prisoners Executed In Isfahan


Human Rights in Iran – Tuesday, September 13, 2022 – The execution of two prisoners on the charge of moharebeh through armed robbery (waging war against God) was carried out at Dastgerd Prison in Isfahan.

According to the report of Human Rights in Iran, Mehran Nour-Mohammadi, born in 1995, a citizen of Minadasht, and Hassan Mohammad-Pour, born in 1995, from Minadasht, two prisoners accused of moharebeh through armed robbery (waging war against God), were executed at Dastgerd Prison in Isfahan Province, at dawn on Sunday, September 11, 2022.

“Mehran and Hassan were arrested in a joint case in Isfahan in 2016 on charges of armed robbery and aerial shooting and after the proceedings, they were sentenced to death by the Revolutionary Court of Isfahan on the charge of moharebeh (waging war against God),” according to an informed source.

On September 7, 2022, these two death row prisoners were removed from the general ward of Dastgerd Prison and transferred to solitary confinement in this prison.

The execution of these 2 prisoners has not been announced by the Iranian media or official sources until the moment of writing this news.

After the appointment of Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ezhe’ei as the head of the judiciary and his claim to speed up the enforcement of old cases and as a result the implementation 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.

Also, on August 23, 2022, Javaid Rehman, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights, in his periodic report on cases of human rights violations in Iran, protested the increasing process of issuing and executing death sentences in Iran.

Due to the non-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.
