Iran Executions: Three Prisoners Hanged

Iran Human Rights –  At least three out of twelve prisoners who were transferred to the solitary confinement of Rajai Shahr Prison in last two days, were executed on Wednesday, April 25. Iman Hosseini Moqaddam is still in solitary confinement.


According to a close source, on the morning of Wednesday, at least three prisoners were hanged at Rajai Shahr Prison. The prisoners have not been identified so far.

The prisoners were transferred to the solitary confinement in a group of 12 on Sunday, April 22 and Monday, April 23.

One of the prisoners was an Afghan named Amir Khalili from Ghezel Hesar Prison, and another one was named Amir Ahmadi from Khourin Prison in Varamin.

Iman Hosseini Moqaddam, who is sentenced to death on the charge of corruption on earth by rape which he denies, was one of the prisoners who were transferred to the solitary confinement. He is sentenced to public execution and is still held in the solitary confinement. It’s possible that the authorities intend to carry out his execution in public.

A close source told IHR, “The authorities advised Iman to write a letter of repentance this morning. He refused and said that he didn’t need to because he had not committed any sins.”

Ahmad Sabet Ahmadi, Amrollah Ajdar, and Javad Sohrabi are three of the prisoners who were transferred to the solitary confinement. However, they were able to ask for time from their plaintiffs and returned to their cells on Tuesday, April 24.

According to statistical department of Iran Human Rights (IHR), at least 19 prisoners were executed in Iran last week. IHR had earlier warned against a new wave of executions in Iran following the nationwide uprising.
