Human Rights Society of Iran, at dawn on Wednesday, September 7, 2022. Death sentence of two prisoners in Shiraz, named Ramzan Jafarzadeh on drug charges and Mohammad Mohammadi Qaed on murder charges, carried out.
The Iranian Human Rights Organization, which published this report, said: “Ramazan Jafarzadeh and Mohammad Mohammaddi Qaed were sentenced to death in separate cases.
“These two prisoners was in prison for about two years.”
While condemning the implementation of death sentences, Iranian Human Rights Society announced that shocking number of executions has reached at least 443 people in 2022 and at least 347 people in 1401.
This is while many death sentences in prisons carried out secretly and are not published anywhere.So actual number of executions in Iranian prisons is much higher than this figure.
On the other hand, judiciary headed by Mohseni Ajei and under the presidency of Ebrahim Raisi has ordered executions to be carried out as soon as possible.
This is while Amnesty International announced in its previous report: “144 countries in the world have now abolished death penalty in their laws or stopped it in practice.” But Iran has highest number of executions in the world in proportion to its population.
