About this Case

News of the execution of Mr. Labakhsh Bameri, son of Rasulbakhsh and known as Dakali, along with another person, was published in the Ettela’at newspaper on October 29, 2001, quoting the Public Relations Office of the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Iranshahr.  

Arrest and detention

The circumstances of Mr. Bameri’s arrest and detention are not known.


Branch One of the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Iranshahr tried Mr. Bameri. No information is available on his trial.


The charges brought against Mr. Bameri were announced as “sedition, road-blocking, armed robbery, and creating public insecurity in the area.”  

The validity of the criminal charges brought against this defendant cannot be ascertained in the absence of the basic guarantees of a fair trial.  International human rights organizations have drawn attention to reports indicating that the Islamic Republic authorities have brought trumped-up charges, including drug trafficking, sexual, and other criminal offences, against their opponents (including political, civil society activists, as well as unionists and ethnic and religious minorities). Each year Iranian authorities sentence to death hundreds of alleged common criminals, following judicial processes that fail to meet international standards. The exact number of people convicted and executed based on trumped-up charges is unknown.   

Evidence of guilt

The report of this execution did not provide any specific information on the evidence presented against Mr. Bameri.


No information is available on Mr. Bameri’s defense.


The court condemned Mr. Labakhsh Bameri to death and the Supreme Court confirmed the ruling. He was hanged in public in Iranshahr in November of 2001. No specific date of execution is reported.
