Afkari was on Saturday executed according to IRNA (Iranian news Agency) cnn reports 

 Navid was put to death on Saturday at a prison in Shiraz Iran. The wrestler was condemned to death over the killing of Iranian government water and sewage Department’s agent "Hassan Turkman" during the august 2018 protest in shiraz 

 Local reports said Navid was put to death after the victims family “Hassan turkman" refuse to forgive him and allow him to pay for his restitution 

 EU spokesperson today said in statement "Human rights remain a central feature of our engagement with Iran condemning the killing as a “cruel and inhumane punishment” 

“ We will continue to engage with Iranian authorities on this issue including through the local EU representation in Tehran and also individual cases such as the recent execution. 

The EU is opposed to the death penalty under all circumstances and cases with no exception. It is cruel and inhumane punishment which falls to as as deterrent and represents an unacceptable denial of hand dignity and integrity ".

Navid's lawyer Hassan Younesi told CNN that donors had gone to the city of Shiraz and were trying to raise money to pay the restitution, but it was too late -- the Shiraz judiciary informed Afkari's family the sentence was already carried out and they didn't get to say goodbye.
