About this Case

Information about Mr. Bahador Nezamkhan Mohimi, son of Alikhan, was sent to Omid by persons close to him, via electronic forms. His execution, along with two other men, was reported in the Jomhuri Eslami newspaper on September 4, 1984.

According to existing reports, Mr. Mohimi was born in Mishpedum, near Kahnuj city, in the eastern province of Kerman in 1956. He was single, a high school graduate, a farmer, and a khan in the Kahnuj and Jiroft area.  

Arrest and Detention

Mr. Bahador Nezamkhan Mohimi was arrested on April 9, 1984, in Jiroft (Kerman Province). According to the information sent to Omid, he had no access to an attorney and only had visits twice with his family.


Based on the newspaper report, Mr. Mohimi was tried at the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Jiroft and Kahnuj. According to one electronic form, he was tried in Jiroft.


According to the newspaper report, Mr. Mohimi was charged with “military action against the Islamic Republic through collaboration with other rebellious chieftains and thugs; extorting money from poor people in Jiroft and Kahnuj; making armed threats and terrorizing people in those cities; participating in martyring two Revolutionary Guards and a Hezbollahi brother; carrying and storing weapons of war; and collaboration with atheist groups.”

The validity of the criminal charges brought against this defendant cannot be ascertained in the absence of the basic guarantees of a fair trial.

Evidence of Guilt

The report of this execution does not contain information regarding the evidence provided against Mr. Mohimi.


No information is available about Mr. Mohimi’s defence.  


The Islamic Revolutionary Court of Jiroft and Kahnuj called Mr. Mohimi “a corruptor on Earth and an enemy of God” and sentenced him to death. The Supreme Judicial Council approved the ruling. He was executed by firing squad in Jiroft on September 3, 1984, at midnight. He was 28 years old. According to the information sent to Omid, authorities did not give his body and the bodies of his two relatives to their families, but since this resulted in turmoil across the city, they changed their minds, and all three bodies were buried at a family cemetery in Naserabad. According to the same report, all properties of Mr. Alikhan Mohimi (the victim’s father) in Jiroft and southern Rudbar were confiscated and given to the Mostaz’afan Foundation [a charitable and enterprising organization].
