Iran today executed prisoners Rahman Ebrahimi, Kiyoumars Rezaei and Behrouz Rahmani on drug-related charges at Karaj’s Ghezel Hesar Prison.

The three prisoners were transferred to solitary confinement for execution on 22 August.

Kiyoumars Rezaei and Rahman Ebrahimi were both from Kuhdasht, Lorestan Province, and were arrested about a decade ago and sentenced to death in a joint case related to drugs.

Another co-defendant in their case, Moslem Havasi, was also executed in the same prison on 18 July.

Behrouz Rahmani, from Varamin, Tehran Province, was arrested approximately three years ago on drug-related charges and subsequently sentenced to death.
