On Sunday, July 12, 2020, a prisoner charged with murder was hanged in Dieselabad prison in Kermanshah.
According to “No to Prison – No to Execution”, Farzad Shokri’s death sentence was carried out in Diesel Abad prison in Kermanshah on Sunday, July 10, 2020.
4 years ago, Farzad Shokri from Kal Davood village was arrested on charges of murder.
Recently, the execution of death sentences have dramatically raised in the mullahs’ judiciary, a prisoner executed on charges of drinking alcohol in Mashhad prison included.
Diana Eltahawy, Amnesty International’s Deputy Regional Director of Middle East and North Africa, said:
“The Iranian authorities have once again laid bare the sheer cruelty and inhumanity of their judicial system by executing a man simply for drinking alcohol. The victim was the latest person to be executed in Valkalibad prison, the site of numerous secret mass executions and a grotesque theatre of Iran’s contempt for human life.
This is the 23rd execution during the last 23 days and the 73rd since the beginning of the Persian new year (21st March).
Since in many cases, the executions are announced to up to several months later or are not made public at all, the real figures are much higher.
“No to Prison – No to Execution” strongly condemns death sentences for any reason and under any pretext and emphasizes that it must be stopped. The death penalty violates basic human rights and must be stopped immediately.
Article 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”
Iran has the highest number of executions in proportion to its population.
According to our sources and the statistics gathered from various sources, there were 281 executions in 2019, of which 15 were women.
