Hamid Samaei hanged at Gorgan Prison on July 31. According to IHR sources, a man was hanged on Wednesday, July 31, at Gorgan prison (Amirabad prison). IHR identified him as Hamid Samaei. “In a wedding, a gang fight happened. A drunk man who attacked others by a sword, was ultimately killed by a knife. Several people testified that Hamid was not the man who stabbed the victim,” a well-informed source told IHR. Iran Human Rights (IHR) has seen at least 8 signed-testimonies confirming Hamid’s innocence. However, he was sentenced to Qisas (retribution in kind). His execution has not been announced by Iranian authorities or media so far.
