IRAN: FIVE MORE HANGINGS

September 4, 2013: Two prisoners were executed in Iran for murder and rape.
The first prisoner was hanged publicly in the Western Iranian town of Ilam in the morning, reported the Iranian state media.
According to the official Iranian news agency IRNA, the prisoner identified as "J. H." was hanged a the Imam Hossein Square of Ilam.
Ali Kamali, the public relation spokesman of Ilam Judiciary told IRNA that "J.H. who was 23 year old and from Ilam was convicted of murdering another person identified as "A. M" 5 years ago".
Since the exact date of birth of the prisoner is not known, Iran Human Rights can not rule out that the prisoner who was executed in Ilam yesterday was a minor at the time of committing the alleged offence.
Another prisoner was hanged in the prison of Sanandaj (Iranian Kurdestan), reported the Kurdish website "Kurdpa" (unofficial). The prisoner was identified as "Yunes Asadi" and was convicted of rape, said the report.
Between 31 August and 3 September 2013, three prisoners were executed in three different Iranian cities, the State broadcasting reported. On 3 September, one boy was hanged in the Karoun Prison of Ahwaz. He was identified as Samir and was convicted of murder, said the report. The State broadcasting also reported about public hanging of a prisoner in Khomeini Shahr on 1 September, and another prisoner in the Adelabad prison of Shiraz on 31 August. The first prisoner was 32 year old and convicted of possession of 740 grams of crack. The other prisoner was 36 year old and convicted of a murder 17 years ago, said the report. None of the prisoners were identified by name.
