Woman prisoner was executed in Qazvin Central Prison at dawn of Wednesday October 27, 2021.
The human rights center of “No to Prison, No to Execution”, quoting HRANA, reported that at dawn on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, the death sentence of a female prisoner, Susan Rezaee-Poor, who had previously been sentenced to death for murder, was carried out at Qazvin Central Prison. Susan Rezaee-Poor was arrested six years ago on charge of murdering her husband and sentenced to death by judicial authorities.
“Susan married forcefully and did not actually love her cousin, to whom she eventually got married,” the report said. “Before her sentence was carried out, Susan said that her husband was drunk every day from 3:00 p.m. to the end of the night and beat her. Ultimately, she could not endure the situation and committed the murder,” the report added.
The execution of this prisoner has not been announced by the media inside Iran or by its official sources.
Considering the execution of this female prisoner at Qazvin Central Prison, since the beginning of 1400 (March 21, 2021), at least five women have been executed under the rule of the mullahs in Iran.
According to Amnesty International’s annual report more than two-thirds of the world’s countries (144 countries) have now abolished the death penalty in law. But the execution machine in Iran is accelerating every day. With Ebrahim Raisi’s presidency and the Ejei presidency over the judiciary, executions have accelerated. Also, according to a report published by the human rights center of “No to Prison, No to Execution”, the number of executions from October 2020 to October 2021 were at least 314, of which 283 men, 12 women, 13 political prisoners and six juvenile offenders were registered in prisons in 25 provinces of Iran.
