 Hanging (Execution) April & May 2009


 
Islamic Republic (Iran) hangs three for mosque bombing


UPI May 30, 2009 at 7:12 AM

ZAHEDAN, Iran, May 30 (UPI) -- Three men already jailed for other attacks were executed Saturday for planning this week's deadly suicide bombing at an Iranian mosque, officials in Tehran say.

The official Iranian Republic News Agency IRNA said the men were hanged Saturday morning near the site of the Thursday mosque attack in the predominantly Sunni Arab southeastern Iran city of Zahedan. Nineteen people died when a bomber infiltrated the Shiite facility and blew himself up, the BBC reported.

The Sunni militant group Jundallah claimed responsibility for the attack, with a spokesman telling Saudi-owned TV channel Al-Arabiya the bomber was targeting a high-level meeting of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards being held inside, the British broadcaster said.

IRNA said the three hanged men, who had been imprisoned in connection with other attacks, "confessed to illegally bringing explosives into Iran and giving them to the main person behind the bombing."

Islamic Republic (Iran) hangs 3 over mosque bombing


By ALI AKBAR DAREINI – Saturday, May 30, 2009 5:00 AM EST

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Three people convicted of involvement in a mosque bombing in southeastern Iran that killed 25 were hanged Saturday, Iran's official news agency reported.

The three men supplied explosives to the perpetrators who carried out the Thursday bombing in Zahedan, 1,000 miles southeast of the capital Tehran, said a statement issued by the judiciary.

Ebrahim Hamidi, the head of the justice department in Zahedan, said that the men were actually arrested before the mosque bombing, but they had "confessed to importing explosives into Iran and providing them to the main person behind the attack."

He added that the men, identified as Haji Nouti Zehi, Gholam Rasoul Shahoo Zehi and Zabihollah Naroui, were also involved in several other bombings including a bus attack in 2006.

Jundallah or God's Brigade, a Sunni militant group believed to have links with al-Qaida, claimed responsibility for the attack.

The group is composed of Sunni Muslims from the Baluchi ethnic minority who have been fighting a low level insurgency in southeastern Iran for years, complaining of persecution by the overwhelmingly Shiite and Persian Iranian government.

The Baluch minority can be found in Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Iran has blamed the U.S. and Israel for trying to stoke sectarian tension with the Sunni Muslim minority. The U.S. condemned attack Friday.

In March 2006, gunmen dressed as security forces killed 21 people on a highway outside Zahedan in an attack authorities blamed on "rebels," though Jundallah was never specifically named.

Two men hanged in Islamic Republic (Iran) – reports


Updated: Tuesday, May 19, 2009 11:30GMT—7:30AM/EST

Washington, 19 May (WashingtonTV)—A man convicted of murder and another for drug trafficking were hanged in Iran, the Iranian media reported on Tuesday.

According to Fars news agency, Mahmoud, 25, was hanged in the central city of Esfahan.

Mahmoud, who was angered by the marriage of a woman he desired to another man, allegedly stabbed and burned the body of the husband’s brother, to take revenge on the family, said the report.

In a separate execution, Ahmad A., who was convicted of smuggling 23 kilograms [50 pounds] of heroin, was hanged in a prison in the southwestern city of Dezful, AFP reported, citing the Kayhan newspaper.

The reports did not say when the executions took place.

Iran has carried out at least 140 executions so far this year, according to Amnesty International.

The London-based human rights group said that at least 346 executions took place in Iran in 2008, second only to China – although its population is 18 times smaller.

Murder, rape, armed robbery, drug trafficking, adultery and apostasy are among the crimes punishable by death in the Islamic Republic.

Islamic Republic (Iran) hangs drug trafficker and murderer!


19/05/2009 09:10 TEHRAN, May 19 (AFP)

Iranian authorities have hanged a man convicted of drug trafficking and another for murder, media reported on Tuesday.

The convicted trafficker, identified as Ahmad A., smuggled 23 kilograms (50 pounds) of heroin, the Kayhan newspaper said. He was sent to the gallows in Iran's southwestern city of Dezful.

In a separate execution, Mahmoud, 25, was hanged in the central city of Isfahan, the Fars news agency reported.

The reports did not say when the two were hanged.

In March 2008, Mahmoud, jilted by a woman who married another man, stabbed, cut the throat and burned the body of the husband's brother to take revenge on the family, Fars said.

The latest hangings bring to at least 112 the number of people executed in Iran so far this year, according to an AFP tally based on press reports.

Last year, 246 executions were reported in the Islamic republic.

The human rights group Amnesty International has said that in 2007 Iran applied the death penalty more than any other country apart from China, executing 335 people.

Tehran says the death penalty is a necessary tool for maintaining public security and is only applied after exhaustive judicial proceedings.

Islamic Republic (Iran) executes four just days after woman artist was hanged!

Last updated at 9:02 AM on 07th May 2009

Delara Darabi was executed for a crime she allegedly committed when she was 17

Iran has executed four more people including a 30-year-old woman who had been convicted of murder, according to reports.

State-owned newspaper IRAN claimed Zeynab Nazarzadeh had been convicted of killing her husband with a hammer.

The other three prisoners, identified as Hamid, Safar Ali and Hassan Ali, were also convicted of murder.

All four were hanged at Tehran’s Evin prison.

The executions came just days after the killing of artist Delara Darabi, who allegedly killed a relative when she was just 17, prompted international outrage.

The country had been due to execute two more juvenile offenders yesterday.

But it appears death penalties on Amir Khaleqi and Safar Angootim, both convicted murderers, have been postponed.

Khaleqi was just 16 when he killed a man in a drunken fight.

His lawyer Mohammad Mostafaie said he did not remember the incident and was so filled with remorse he handed himself in to the police.

Angooti, meanwhile, was convicted of murder when he was 17 after stabbing to death another man who was talking to a girl he liked.

The executions of 23-year-old Darabi provoked international outrage.

She had initially confessed to the crime but later retracted her statement saying she had been defending her 19-year-old boyfriend.

In a desperate last phone call to her parents minutes before her execution, she said: 'Oh, Mother, I see the hangman's noose in front of me. They are going to execute me. Please save me.'

According to Amnesty International, 135 other juvenile offenders are currently on death row in Iran.

International law bans the execution of people convicted of crimes under the age of 18.

Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Deputy Director of Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Programme, said: 'The international consensus against executing child offenders reflects the widespread recognition that because of children’s immaturity, impulsiveness, vulnerability and capacity for rehabilitation, their lives should never be written off – however heinous the crimes of which they are convicted.

'The scheduling of these executions, just days after the appalling execution of Delara Darabi, shows that the Iranian authorities have total disregard for international law which unequivocally bans the execution of those convicted of crimes committed under the age of 18.

'There may still be time to save the lives of Amir Khaleqi and Safar Angooti who, like Delara, may be killed for crimes they allegedly committed when they were still minors.'

Murder, rape, armed robbery, kidnapping and drug trafficking are all punishable with the death penalty under Iran's Islamic penal law.

Iran has executed more than 90 people this year according to media reports.

The country does not publish official statistics on executions.

Islamic Republic (Iran) hangs drug traffickers in mass execution!


(AFP) 6 May 2009

TEHERAN - Iran has hanged eight men convicted of drug trafficking and another man found guilty of murder, press reports said on Wednesday.

The unnamed drug traffickers were hanged on Saturday in a prison in the town of Taybad in northeastern Iran near the Afghan border, Aftab-e Yazd said, quoting police sources.

It did not say whether the men were all Iranians.

Another man identified as Abdolbaret Noorzehi was executed for murder in a prison in Khash in the eastern province of Sistan Baluchestan, the Jomhuri Eslami newspaper said, without specifying when the hanging took place.

The latest hangings bring to at least 85 the number of people executed in the Islamic republic so far this year, according to an AFP count, compared with 246 in 2008.

The rights group Amnesty International has said that Iran applied the death penalty more than any other country apart from China in 2007, executing 335 people.

Teheran says the use of the death penalty is a bid to improve security in society

Man Stoned To Death In Islamic Republic (Iran) For Adultery !


May 05, 2009 8:43 AM

TEHRAN (Reuters) -- A man has been stoned to death in Iran for adultery but the woman involved in the case repented, the judiciary said, suggesting her life was spared.

The Islamic republic has been heavily criticized by the European Union, rights groups, and the United Nations for stoning criminals and there are official Iranian recommendations the practice should not occur.

Asked whether he could confirm that a man charged with adultery was stoned to death in the northern city of Rasht during the Iranian month that ended on March 20, judiciary spokesman Alireza Jamshidi told a news conference:

"What you said about stoning is correct. But the woman repented.... Among the instances in which the sentence is not performed is when there is a repentance by the individual involved."

Iranian media said the executed man was 30 years old.

According to Iran's Islamic Penal Code, men convicted of adultery should be buried up to their waists and women up to their chests for stoning. Stones used should not be large enough to kill the person immediately.

In January, Jamshidi said two men convicted of adultery were stoned to death the previous month in the northeastern city of Mashhad, but a third convicted man escaped while the punishment was being carried out.

The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, a nongovernmental group based outside Iran, said that someone who was convicted on the basis of another's testimony and who escaped the stoning pit may have their life spared.

Iran's judiciary, which ordered a moratorium on stoning in 2002, last year said the lives of four people sentenced to stoning had been spared and the implementation of other sentences had been halted pending a review of their cases.

Iran has implemented Shari'a law since its 1979 revolution.

Convicted Adulterer Stoned To Death In Islamic Republic (Iran) !


Tuesday, May 5, 2009 @10:10am CST

(Tehran) -- A man was apparently stoned to death for adultery in Iran earlier this year.

The Islamic Republic's judiciary announced the execution Tuesday, adding that the woman in the case was spared after she repented.

The 30-year-old man was reportedly executed in the northern city of Rasht sometime in March.

The judiciary spokesman confirmed the stoning.

Human right groups have long criticized Iran's practice of stoning criminals and Iran had supposedly adopted recommendations to halt this particular form of execution.

Iran's penal code is based on Islamic sharia law.

It calls for burying men up to the waist and stoning them if they're found guilty of adultery.

Women are first buried up to their chests.

The stones are supposed to be small enough to avoid killing the condemned person right away.

Islamic Republic (Iran) hangs woman for murder committed when minor: report

 
Reuters Saturday, May 2, 2009; 8:43 AM

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran has executed a woman convicted of murdering her father's cousin when she was 17, Iranian media reported on Saturday.

Human rights groups criticized Iran's execution on Friday of 23-year-old Delara Darabi in the northern city of Rasht.

"Delara Darabi, a painter charged with murder, was executed on Friday morning in Rasht prison without her lawyer and family being informed of her execution," the daily Etemad reported on Saturday.

The Czech presidency of the European Union strongly condemned the execution of Darabi and urged Iran to "avoid juvenile executions."

"Such human rights violations erode the ground for understanding and mutual trust between Iran and the European Union," the presidency said in a statement.

Etemad said Darabi had been in jail for five years and had initially confessed to the murder because she believed she would be pardoned as the crime was committed when she was a minor.

"Amnesty International is outraged at the execution of Delara Darabi, and particularly at the news that her lawyer was not informed about the execution," Amnesty said on its website.

Human rights groups have criticized Iran for sentencing minors to death. Iran says it only carries out the death penalty when a prisoner reaches the age of 18.

Iran has executed at least 42 juvenile criminals since 1990, including seven in 2007, according to the groups which say Saudi Arabia and Yemen are the only two other countries to do so.

Murder, rape, adultery, armed robbery, drug trafficking and apostasy are all punishable by death under Iran's sharia law.

Rights groups had praised Iran when it seemed to have ended the practice in October 2007. But a judiciary official later clarified Iran's position, saying juvenile offenders could still face execution for murder but not for other capital crimes.

Iran regularly rejects accusations of human rights abuses, saying it is following Islamic sharia and accusing Western governments of double standards.

Juvenile offender executed in Islamic Republic (Iran)

 
Friday, May 01, 2009 12:00GMT—8:00AM/EST

Washington, 1 May (WashingtonTV)—Iran on Friday executed juvenile offender Delara Darabi, in a prison in the northern city of Rasht, Amnesty International reported.

The hanging marks the second execution of a juvenile offender in the Islamic Republic this year, says the London-based human rights group.

Amnesty International said it was “outraged” at the execution of the 23-year-old, who was convicted of committing a murder at the age of 17. Her lawyer was not informed about the execution, despite the legal requirement that he should receive 48 hours’ notice, the group said.

“This appears to have been a cynical move on the part of the authorities to avoid domestic and international protests, which might have saved Delara Darabi’s life,” said Amnesty International.

The human rights group also pointed out that the head of Iran’s Judiciary, gave Darabi a two-month stay of execution on 19 April.

Amnesty International said her trial was not fair, because the courts later refused to consider new evidence, which Darabi’s lawyer said would have proved she could not have committed the murder.

Her execution brings to at least 140 the number of executions in Iran this year, said the human rights group.

Iran has ratified two international treaties which prohibit the execution of persons who had allegedly committed a crime while under the age of 18. According to Amnesty International, the Islamic Republic has executed at least 42 juvenile offenders since 1990.
