Two of the last people may have been Mehrdad Karimpour and Farid Mohammadi, executed in Iran at the end of January this year.

Karimpour was 32 and Mohammadi was 29. They were accused of sodomy by the Iranian authorities, for which they spent six years on death row, according to the group Human Rights Activists in Iran (HRAI), which reports on human rights violations and abuses in the country. .

The gallows awaited them on January 30 in the city of Maragheh, some 500 kilometers northwest of Tehran.

The difficulty in obtaining official data makes it difficult to know if Mehrdad and Farid are the most recent victims, but most likely they are not the last.
