About this Case

News of the execution of Mr. Ebadollah Rasuli, son of Almas, was published in the Jomhuri Eslami newspaper on November 26, 2000, quoting the Informational and Social Deputy of Judiciary. His case was related to a murder in March of 2000.

Arrest and detention

The circumstances of Mr. Rasuli’s arrest and detention are not known.


No information is available on Mr. Rasuli’s trial.


According to the Informational and Social Deputy of Judiciary, the charge brought against Mr. Rasuli was announced as “murder.”

The validity of the criminal charges brought against this defendant cannot be ascertained in the absence of the basic guarantees of a fair trial.  International human rights organizations have drawn attention to reports indicating that the Islamic Republic authorities have brought trumped-up charges, including drug trafficking, sexual, and other criminal offences, against their opponents (including political, civil society activists, as well as unionists and ethnic and religious minorities). Each year Iranian authorities sentence to death hundreds of alleged common criminals, following judicial processes that fail to meet international standards. The exact number of people convicted and executed based on trumped-up charges is unknown.

Evidence of guilt

The report of this execution did not provide any specific information on the evidence presented against Mr. Rasuli.


No information is available on Mr. Rasuli’s defense.


The court condemned Mr. Ebadollah Rasuli to death. After legal procedure concluded and with the permission by the Head of Judiciary, the ruling was carried out when he was hanged at the Ilam Central Prison in 2000.
