According to the source: "Earlier this week, at least five prisoners on death row were forgiven by the families of their victims. One of the prisoners named Hassan, had gone to the gallows twice in the last two years but after seven years, his victim’s mother forgave him without asking for diya (blood money).” At the time of writing, Alireza Ghorbani’s execution has not been reported by domestic media or officials in Iran.
