Prisoners Hassan Teyran and Afshin Amin-Khani who were previously sentenced to death on murder-related charges, were transferred today to solitary confinement at Orumiyeh Central Prison for execution.

Teyran, 43, and Amin-Khani, 30, were arrested in 2020 and 2021, respectively, on charges of “premeditated murder”.

The two civilians were sentenced to death under the Islamic law of qisas or retribution-in-kind, which grants the right to retaliate to the victim’s family.

Earlier this morning, two other prisoners, Milad Jajouyi Khanik and Mohammad Ali Akhtari Kohlan were executed in Orumiyeh Central Prison.
