A woman, Fatemeh Yusuf Abadi, was executed in Rajai Prison, Karaj, on July 12, 2023, after being convicted of murder. Her execution is part of Iran's ongoing capital punishment practices, which have drawn scrutiny from human rights organizations. According to reports, she was transferred from Qarchak Prison to Rajai Prison for execution, while another woman's execution was halted for undisclosed reasons.
In the year 2023, at least 617 executions were carried out in Iran, including 13 women and 6 child offenders, as documented in the annual report on executions. This troubling statistic has raised concerns about the fairness and transparency of the country's legal system and has drawn international attention to Iran's position as one of the top implementers of capital punishment, particularly with regards to women.
