On January 25, 2020, the head of the Ministry of Justice office in Iran's Hormozgan Province announced that Mr. Isa Zaminkufteh had been executed on charges of leading a drug cartel. In this interview produced by Tabnak News and distributed by Iran International on the same day, Zaminkufteh's wife describes how judicial authorities failed to inform her in advance of her husband's execution or grant a final visitation to her and their children. Zaminkufteh's father and a local cleric, meanwhile, raise their concerns of failures of evidence and due process in the case and call on judicial officials to investigate.
