IRAN Davoud Abdollahi Moghadam (m), aged 41, army colonel

Davoud Abdollahi Moghadam is now known to have been executed, possibly on 22 June, in Tehran's Evin Prison.

He had been sentenced to death in February 2007 by a military court, after an unfair trial, for spying. He had confessed under torture.

No further action is requested from the UA network. Many thanks to all who sent appeals.
