Iran Human Rights, Friday September 18 2015: Saeed Zargari; a prisoner charged with theft, kidnapping and murder; was reportedly hanged to death in public in Ardestan (a city in the province of Isfahan).
According to Iran state media Seda o Sima, quoting Ardestan's Justice Department, Zargari was executed in public on the morning of Wednesday September 16. Zargari is reportedly accused of murdering Seyed Parsa Hashemi, a seven-year-old child.
According to the Prosecutor of Ardestan, Saeed Zargari was arrested in 2013 as a result of a financial dispute with Parsa Hashemi's father. The Prosecutor says that prior to the arrest Zargari had kidnapped Parsa Hashemi and hid him in the trunk of his car, but due to Zargari's arrest, Parsa Hashemi was left in the trunk of the car where he eventually died.
Though Saeed Zargari's hanging was reportedly carried out in public, Iranian authorities or state media have not published any photos of the execution.
