Tehran, Jan. 10 – An Iranian man is to be hanged in Tehran on January 19, charged with murder.

The man only identified by his first name Ali-Reza was originally sentenced to be publicly hanged by Judge Javad Esmaeili for the murder of five members of a family some two years ago.

His sentence was subsequently upheld by Iran’s Supreme Court.

Iran’s Judiciary recently announced that Ali-Reza would be hanged inside the notorious Evin prison rather than in public.

In a separate incident a young man who stands accused of murdering a colleague at work in October 2001 will be publicly hanged within the next month.

Gholam-Reza was handed down the sentence by Judge Esmaeili which was subsequently approved by the Supreme Court.
