    According to a report by the human right news agency HRANA, the executions were carried out on Wednesday January 18. The report identifies one of the prisoners as Habib Khazayi. The names of the other three prisoners are not known at this time.

    Two Prisoners Hanged on Drug Charges

    (JAN 30 2017): Two prisoners were reportedly hanged at Arak Prison (Markazi province, central Iran) on drug related charges. According to the human rights news agency HRANA, the executions were carried out on Wednesday January 25. The prisoners have been identified as Seifollah Chezabi and Alireza Jalayeri.

    Mr. Chezabi and Mr. Jalayeri were reportedly taken to solitary confinement the day before their executions. Iranian official sources, including the Judiciary and the media, have not announced the execution of these two prisoners.

    Executions for drug related charges are increasing in Iran while the Iranian Parliament has proposed a law to limit the use of the death penalty for drug charges. The law must first be approved by Iran's Guardian Council, and it is not clear whether it would actually lead to a reduction in the number of drug related executions. Additionally, members of parliament recently wrote a letter to the head of the Judiciary calling for a halt to the execution sentences of about five thousand prisoners who are on death row for allegedly committing drug related offenses.


    Two Juvenile Prisoners Executed

    (JAN 28 2017): Two juvenile offenders were executed in Kerman (southeastern Iran) and Tabriz (northwestern Iran) prisons. This is in addition to the more than 70 people who have been executed since the beginning of 2017. Iran Human Rights calls for international reactions to the wave of executions and in particular juvenile executions in Iran.

    "We want abolition of the death penalty, and as a first step abolition of the death penalty for all offences committed while under age of 18. We are calling on the international community, especially the United Nations and the European Union, to place abolition of the death penalty, in particilar the death penalty for juveniles, at the top of their talks with the Iranian authorities," says Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, spokesperson of Iran Human Rights.

    The Iranian authorities lead the world in the most executions of minors, despite the revisions made to the Islamic Penal Code and that child executions violate Iran's international obligations.

    Arman Bahr Asemani - Convicted of murder at age 16

    Iran Human Rights has received confirmation on the execution of a a juvenile prisoner who was convicted of murder at the age of 16.

    "Arman Bahr Asemani, born February 10, 1997, convicted in November 2012 of murdering his cousin, was hanged on Sunday January 15, 2017 at Kerman's Shahab Prison," a close source tells Iran Human Rights.

    "Bahr Asemani, who was 20 years old at the time of his execution, had also been condemned to 74 lashings on the charge of consumption of alcohol. Hs lawyer had attempted to argue that if [Arman] was drunk, then he should not have been charged with first degree murder, but the lawyer never got anywhere," says the close source.

    Iranian official sources had announced an execution at Shahab Prison of a 23-year-old prisoner charged with murder; however, there was no mention of Bahr Asemani's execution.

    Hassan Hassanzadeh - Convicted of murder at age 15

    The human rights news agency HRANA reports on the execution of a juvenile prisoner at Tabriz Prison on Wednesday January 18. The prisoner, identified as Hassan Hassanzadeh, was reportedly around 15 years old when he was convicted of murder. He was reportedly jailed for about two and a half years before he was executed at the age of 18.

He was a driver, and he never returned after driving one of his passengers to Kermanshah.

    Close sources have identified the other prisoner as Hamidreza Reybaz, 35 years old, arrested in 2006 on the charge of possession of two kilograms of crystal meth and 200 grams of crack, sentenced to death in 2011 by a court in Kermanshah. This is reportedly the second time that the execution sentence of Mr. Reybaz was postponed.

    The execution sentences of Mr. Azizpanah and Mr. Reybaz were reportedly postponed due to the Fajr decade celebrations.

    Six Prisoners Executed in Northeastern Iran- Three Scheduled For Execution

    IRAN HUMAN RIGHTS (24. MAY 2017): Six prisoners were executed in two different Iranian prisons early Tuesday morning, May 24.

    According to the Kurdish Human Rights Network five prisoners were hanged in the prison of Tabriz. Three of the prisoners were identified as "Kazem Hajaji", "Seyed Ali Mousavi" and "Jaber Fakhri". All the five prisoners were convicted of murder and sentenced to qisas (retribution in kind).

    The website "No to prison, no to death penalty" reported about the execution of one prisoner in the prison of Ardebil. The prisoner is identified as "Davoud Hamdard" and was charged with drug offences. Iran Human Rights (IHR) has confirmed the execution of Mr. Hamdard.

    None of the above mentioned executions were announced by official Iranian sources.

    IHR sources have reported about the scheduled execution of one prisoner from Rajaishahr prison of Karaj (west of Tehran). According to these sources the prisoner scheduled to be executed publicly in the coming days.

    Two other prisoners identified as "Abdolkarim Shahnavazi" and "Saeed Hood" were transferred to solitary confinement in the prison of Zahedan Monday morning in preparation for execution. Both the prisoners were charged with drug offences.
