The sentence of an Iranian Baluch prisoner named Hamed Kheradmand, who was sentenced to retaliation (execution) on charges of “premeditated murder”, was carried out in Zahedan Central Prison.
According to the Campaign for the Defense of Political and Civil Prisoners, the death sentence of a prisoner named Hamed Kheradmand, who had previously been sentenced to death for “premeditated murder”, was carried out in Zahedan Prison on Saturday, February 19th, 2022.
According to the report, Hamed Kheradmand, 35, from Sistan and Baluchestan and a resident of Mashhad, was sentenced to retaliation for “premeditated murder.”
According to this source, Hamed Kheradmand Hamed was arrested in 2019 on charges of family murder in Zahedan, and in 2020 he was sentenced to retaliation in the Branch 1 of the province court.
The execution of this prisoner has not been announced by the Iranian media or official sources as of this writing.
According to the annual report of the Human Rights Organization of Iran, at least 211 executions out of 267 executions carried out in Iran in 2020 were charged with “premeditated murder.”
Lack of grading for premeditated murder in Iran causes any type of murder, regardless of the severity, weakness and motive of the accused, to result in the death sentence.
