IRAN: TWO PRISONERS HANGED ON DRUG CHARGES
January 20, 2017: Two prisoners were reportedly hanged on theĀ morning at Khorammabad's Parsilon Prison (western Iran) on drug related charges.
Human rights news agency HRANA has identified the prisoners as Jahangir Beiravand and Adel Beiravand.
"Adel Beiravand was innocent, but he was executed based on the confessions of the main individual convicted in the case file," a close source tells Iran Human Rights. The close source also says that the execution sentences for six other prisoners at Parsilon Prison were just confirmed by the Supreme Court and have been sent for implementation.
Iranian official sources, including the Judiciary and the media, have not announced these two executions. (Sources: Iran Human Rights, 26/01/2017)
