Iran: Prisoner Hanged on Murder Charges

Iran Human Rights (MAY 3 2017): On Sunday April 30, a prisoner was reportedly executed at Hamadan Central Prison on murder charges, and another prisoner was returned to his cell after his execution was temporarily halted.

Close sources have identified the prisoner who was executed as Imran Askardasht, 30 years of age.

"He was charged with murder in 2010," a close source tells Iran Human Rights.

On the same day, a prisoner in Hamadan Central Prison, who is on death row on murder charges, had his execution sentence temporarily halted upon receiving consent from the plaintiffs on his case file. 

Close sources have identified this prisoner as Bakhtiar Leilinejad, 31 years of age.

Imran and Bakhtiar were both transferred to solitary confinement on Saturday April 29 in preparation for their executions.
