28 August 2019 :
Hamid Reza Derakhshandeh was executed on August 28 in public in the city of Kazeroun, state news agency IRNA reported, citing the chief justice of Fars province, Kazem Mousavi. According to the state-run news website Iran Online, he was sentenced to death for the assassination of an Iranian cleric, a mullah, three months ago.
Hamid Reza Derakhshandeh (also Derakhshande), 47, had stabbed to death Mohammad Khorsand on May 29 as he was returning from a religious ceremony at 3:30 in the morning during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting, IRNA said. The execution was carried out at the location of the murder.
Derakhshandeh, was tried on July 3, at a court in Shiraz. The judge issued the verdict minutes after a single court session. Rampant corruption and embezzlement in the clerical regime in Iran and lack of justice have frustrated the people suffering under the poverty line.
In a recorded audio message published on social media, Hamid tells his intention for killing the cleric was the corruption of authorities which has led people to starvation. His death sentence had been issued and upheld by the Iranian Supreme Court in just three months, and it is unknown that he had a fair trial or not. Mullahs who lead Friday prayers in Iran are appointed by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
