02 March 2024 :

March 1, 2024 - IRAN. In February 2024, the death sentences of at least 10 prisoners were carried out in the prisons of the Islamic Republic of Iran, marking a strong decrease compared to the previous month, which saw 74 executions.
Hengaw speculates that the slowdown in executions this month may be attributed to the commencement of the parliamentary election campaign in the Islamic Republic, with a potential for a resurgence after the elections.
This report indicates that in February, the death sentences of at least 3 Turkish and 1 Kurdish prisoner were carried out. Additionally, one citizen each from Afghanistan and Iraq were executed in Iranian prisons.
Out of the total 10 executed prisoners in February, only one case, accounting for 10% of the total, was officially announced by Iranian authorities and judiciary-affiliated websites.
5 of the prisoners executed in February were sentenced on charges related to premeditated murder, and 5 to drug-related crimes.
