Iran hangs 2 men in Qom

The death sentence for two people on charges of complicity in carrying narcotics was carried out in Qom.

“On Thursday morning, the death sentence for two narcotics traffickers was carried out in the Qom Central Prison on charges of complicity in carrying 25 kilograms of crack [the term used in Iran for a kind of heroin and not for crack cocaine]”, the Qom Public and Revolutionary Court announced.

According to this report, these two people who were sentenced to death were executed after their sentences were confirmed by the Attorney General and after their requests for amnesty were turned down by the Central Judicial Amnesty Commission.
