Sadegh Khalkhali

Mohammed Sadeq Givi Khalkhali (27 July 1926 – 26 November 2003) (Persian: صادق خلخالی‎) was an Iranian Shia cleric who is said to have "brought to his job as Chief Justice of the revolutionary courts a relish for summary execution" that earned him a reputation as Iran's "hanging judge".

A farmer's son from Iranian Azeri origins was born in Givi, Azerbaijani S.S.R., U.S.S.R. (now in Azerbaijan Republic).

He is also reported to have born in Kivi, Khalkhal, in the Khalkhal County, Iran (ergo his name).Khalkhali has been described as "a small, rotund man with a pointed beard, kindly smile, and a high-pitched giggle."
