Human rights organizations estimate that China executes thousands of people a year. The number of executions is a state secret, and the executions reported in the media are a fraction of those that are carried out. [1] It is estimated that China executes more than the rest of the world together. [2]

Given the secrecy surrounding executions, exact numbers are difficult to obtain and different figures are provided by various organizations.

According to the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center, 109 people have been executed as of August 6, 2019. [1]

The Iran Human Rights Monitor reports that at least 143 people, including three men who were under the age of 18 at the time of the crime, have been executed in 2019. [2]

According to the Abdorrahman Boroumand Foundation, there have been 117 executions in 2019. [3]

Iran Human Rights also collates reports of executions [4] and reported that by the end of June, there had been 110 executions. [5]

In April 2019, Amnesty International reported the execution of two 17-year-old boys, who were 15 years old at the time of the alleged offense. [6] Body marks indicated that they had been flogged before execution. [7] One of these juveniles was reportedly intellectually disabled. [8] In July 2019, authorities hanged a man, reportedly Touraj Ghassemi, who was possibly a juvenile at the time of committing murder. [9] In August 2019, Hamid Avesti, a Kurdish man, was executed for murder allegedly committed when he was under 18, having been sentenced to death when he was 17. [10]

The actual number of executions is likely to be higher given the government’s underreporting of executions and the holding of secret executions.

At least four, including two women. [1]

Because of the secrecy surrounding capital punishment, we are not able to offer a reliable estimate. This is the number of executions reported in the media (which often obtain their information from South Korean sources), but media reports are not always accurate.

In March 2019, two women accused of carrying out “'superstitious activities'” were publicly tried and executed by firing squad in North Hamgyong’s Chongjin city. [2] In February 2019, a man convicted of drug dealing was executed by firing squad in the city of Hamhung, South Hamgyong Province. [3] Adherence to fair trial standards and due process seems unlikely as both the women and the man were allegedly publicly tried and executed. [4] Also, in January 2019, a man was executed by firing squad at the Hoeryong Jongori correctional labor camp in front of other inmates. [5] The man allegedly killed a prison guard, and his execution took place only four days after an investigation had begun, contravening the North Korean criminal code’s requirement of several layers of investigation, indictment, and trial in such cases. [6]

At least 134.

In July, a report by Baroness Helena Kennedy stated that at least 134 people have been executed in 2019. [1] The European Saudi Organisation for Human Rights reported that at least 122 people have been executed. [2] In May 2019, Amnesty International reported that at least 110 people, [3] including 44 foreign nationals, [4] have been executed in Saudi Arabia in 2019. At least three men who were under the age of 18 at the time of the alleged offense [5] and at least three women from Nigeria, the Philippines, and Pakistan were among those executed. [6] Male foreign nationals from Pakistan, India, and Yemen have also been executed. [7]

On April 23, Saudi Arabia carried out the mass execution of 37 people convicted of terrorism-related offenses after trials that failed to meet fair trial standards. [8] At least 33 of the 37 people executed belonged to the country’s Shi’a minority [9] and at least three were under the age of 18 at the time of the alleged offense. [10]

Some of the reported executions were carried out in public by the military, with indications that fair trial standards were not upheld. [2]

There have been no reports of executions in Somalia’s semi-autonomous region Puntland in 2019. [3]
