June 21, 2023:
(June 21, 2023) - Hemin Mostafaei (Hemn Mustafai) executed on June 21 in Sanandaj central prison.
Hemin Mostafaei, a Kurdish prisoner from the city of Marivan, was arrested on March 1, 2013 on charges of murdering Ebrahim Mohammadi, a former member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)
He was sentenced to death after his confession was broadcasted on Iran’s state-owned Press TV.
Sources close to Mostafaei’s family claim that the inmate had buckled under the intense physical and psychological torture he was being subjected to and was left with no choice but to take responsibility for the murder, according to human right monitors in Rojhelat.
The death row inmate was transferred to solitary confinement on Monday in preparation for his execution. His family members and rights activists gathered in front of the prison to try to cancel the execution but to no avail.
