The death sentence of a woman was carried out in Shiraz, the capital of Fars Province in southern Iran.
The clerical regime carried out the death sentence of yet another woman in Adelabad Prison of Shiraz on Sunday, May 22, 2022.
The unfortunate woman has been identified only by her last name, “Hayati.”
Ms. Hayati had been sentenced to death by retribution (Qisas) for the deliberate murder of her husband. Ms. Hayati was hanged with a Baluchi man, Abdolbari Rigi, 32.
The state media have not announced the news of the hanging executions of the two as this report is being published.
Most women executed in Iran on the charge of deliberate murder are victims of domestic violence. The lack of social or government support for battered women and the denial of divorce rights to Iranian women has such unfortunate outcomes.
With the execution of this woman in Shiraz, the number of women executed in Iran since September 2013 has reached 133.
Chief executioner of women
Almost a year since Khamenei appointed Ebrahim Raisi as the regime’s president, at least 300 persons have been executed. The clerical regime executed 18 women in 2021, with a surge in executions under Raisi.
183 imprisoned women have death sentences
Death by retribution is carried out on persons convicted of murder, regardless of their motives.
During a series of major revelations, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has published extensive information obtained from the clerical regime’s judicial system, including the Prisons Organization.
According to the statistics registered by the office of the Prisons Organization, 5,197 people are on death row or sentenced to Qisas (retribution in kind). Of these, 1,366 are sentenced to death, including 39 women. Another 3,831 prisoners, including 144 women, have a sentence of Qisas or retribution in kind.
The documents also list the names of 51 persons, including 23 women, sentenced to death by stoning.
Some 48,559 of the detainees, including 1,706 women, are going through the “investigation phase” and held with “undecided” status by agencies such as the State Security Force (SSF) and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS). Based on this data, 17,190 prisoners have more than 15 years of the sentence.
