About this Case

News of the execution of Mr. Amanollah (without stating his family name), son of Adineh, was announced by Islamic Republic daily (December 30, 2006) citing the Public and Islamic Revolutionary Prosecutor of Saravan County.

Mr. Amanollah’s case pertains to possessing illegal firearms, armed robbery and obstructing roads. 

Arrest and detention

Mr. Amanollah was arrested after he had obstructed the Ghafourabad-Kulu road in Saravan County. However, there is no further information available on the details of his arrest and detention. 


Mr. Amanollah was tried by the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Zahedan. However, there is no information available on the details of the session or sessions of his trial. 


Mr. Amanollah was charged with “armed robbery.” Before his last arrest, he had spent some time in prison and then obtained a furlough on bail, during which he obstructed the Ghafourabad-Kulu road.

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.
