Iran Human Rights – A woman was executed at Noshahr Prison on the charge of murdering her husband.
According to a close source, on the morning of Tuesday, January 30, a woman was executed at Noshahr prison. The prisoner was sentenced to death on the charge of murdering her husband with an accomplice. The murder was committed in Molkar village in 2014.
“The accomplice of this prisoner was sentenced to 15 years in prison,” told a close source to Iran Human Rights (IHR).
The execution was first reported by HRANA news agency, but the state-run media have not announced it so far.
According to Iran Human Rights annual report on the death penalty, 142 of the 530 execution sentences in 2016 were implemented due to murder charges. There is a lack of any classification of murder by degree in Iran which results in issuing a death sentence for all types of the murder, regardless of intensity and intent.
