17 October 2017 :
According to ISNA and the Deputy of Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor’s office of Kerman, Mokhtar Shamsuddini, on the morning of October 12, a prisoner was hanged at Kerman Prison.
The prisoner identified as P.D. was charged with Moharebeh for blocking the road, kidnapping some Afghans, and extorting them.
At least 530 prisoners were executed last year, 44 of whom were sentenced to death on the charge of Moharebeh and “Spreading corruption on earth”.
Due to the ambiguity of the notions of Moharebeh (waging war against God) and “Spreading corruption on earth”, these two charges are commonly used for a large number of offences.
