Mohammad Kariminejad, Hamed Manouchehri and Sobhan Shohani Executed in Ilam

According to information obtained by Iran Human Rights, three men were executed in Ilam Central Prison on the morning of January 19. Sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for murder, their identities have been established as Mohammad Kariminejad, Hamed Manouchehri and Sobhan Shohani.

An informed source told Iran Human Rights: “Mohammad Kariminejad had been behind bars for six years and Sobhan Shohani for two and a half.”

At the time of writing, none of their executions have been reported by domestic media or officials in Iran.

According to Iran Human Rights’ Annual Report on the Death Penalty, at least 211 of the 267 people executed in 2020 were sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) for “premeditated murder.”

As there are no legal distinctions made between murder and manslaughter, whether voluntary or involuntary in Iran, those charged under the umbrella term of “premeditated murder” will receive the death penalty regardless of intent and the circumstances.
