A death row prisoner, Keyvan Rezagholi, was hanged at Sanandaj Central Prison on Monday, August 10, on charges of “premeditated murder.”

Keyvan Rezagholi, 43 years old and from Sanandaj, was arrested in February 2015 for the murder of his friend and he was later sentenced to retaliation.

The Kurdistan Human Rights Network has also been informed that another prisoner, Fayeq Ahmadi who was transferred to solitary confinement in Sanandaj Prison to serve his sentence, is still in danger of imminent execution.
