Ali Motayyeri executed in Sheiban (Sheyban, Shaiban) Prison, Ahvaz, on January 28.
He was charged with being an Isis terrorist. According to state-run Tasnim news agency, Ali Motayyeri was executed at Sheiban Prison this morning. He had been sentenced to qisas (retribution-in-kind) and efsad-fil-arz (corruption on earth) for murder. In a statement on Ali Motayyeri’s execution, the Judiciary of Khuzestan Province wrote: “In a terrorist attack on 7 May 2018, Ali Motayyeri, a terrorist member of ISIS, attacked the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) base in Sheiban, Khuzestan province and as a result, martyred two active IRGC members on the base named Bashir Hamidi and Hassan Karoun-Bahmanshir.” Around nine months after his arrest, Branch One of the Ahvaz Criminal Court sentenced Ali to qisas (retribution-in-kind). Informed sources have told IHR: “Ali Motayyeri and a few other prisoners had been on a hunger strike and sewn their lips in protest to his unfair death sentence and the prison guards’ treatment of prisoners since January 23." Ali’s execution in the Arab region of Ahvaz comes at a time when executions and crackdowns have intensified in the Baluch and Kurdish regions in the past few weeks.
