Four prisoners sentenced to execution on the charge of murder were reportedly transferred to solitary confinement at Orumiyeh Central prison from various wards in preparation for execution on July 15.

Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN) has identified three of these detainees as Heman Banavand and Mohammad Aref Najafian from ward 3-4 in addition to Abdolkhalegh Royayi from ward 14.

It is said that Abdolkhalegh Royayi has been detained at Orumiyeh Prison for the past 17 years.

Prison Authorities have told the prisoners that their death sentences would be carried out tomorrow if the “blood owners (Oliya-e-dam)” did not show leniency towards them.
