Iranian man sentenced to hang again

An Iranian death-row prisoner who survived his hanging execution has been sentenced to hang again once his health has been restored, a judge has ordered.

The 37-year-old man, identified only "Alireza M", was executed on October 9 by a hanging at the Bonjord Prison after being sentenced to death for the possession of 1kg of amphetamines, Iranian.com reports.

Alireza M was "very scared when he was walking towards the gallows" where he then hanged by the neck for 12 minutes, the country’s state media reported.


Spokesperson for Iran Human Rights Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam has called on the international community to voice its outrage over the father having to meet his fate for a second time.

Poor guy. I don't agree with the death penalty in the first place, I can't imagine the torture of this for he and his family going through this twice.

2. I read about an opposite case about ten years ago.

A man was sentenced to stoning. The sentence was to be carried out by collapsing a brick-wall over him. When they dug in the rubble, they found him alive. He was allowed to live.
