IRAN - Anvar Narouei executed in Isfahanâs Dastgerd Prison on January 28
January 28, 2021:
Anvar Narouei, an Iranian Baluch, was executed in Isfahan’s Dastgerd Prison on January 28.
The Iranian government annually executes dozens of citizens, particularly residents of Sistan and Baluchestan province, on drug-related charges. This is while the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) control all of Iran’s crucial borders. In July 2011, then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called IRGC commanders “smuggler brothers.” A day earlier, authorities called the Naroueis to go to Isfahan’s Dastgerd Prison for the last visit with their loved one. With the execution of Anvar Narouei, the Iranian government has executed at least 17 Baluchi citizens in the past 40 days, according to human rights defenders.
