Juvenile offender at imminent risk as Iran continues execution spree

29 July 2015, 15:56 UTC
Salar Shadizadi scheduled to be executed on 1 August for crime committed when he was 15 years old.

A juvenile offender in Iran is at imminent risk of execution amid a horrifying rise in the number of executions in the country, Amnesty International said today.
Salar Shadizadi, who is now 24, is due to be hanged on Saturday 1 August, after he was convicted of murdering a friend in 2007. He was 15 years old at the time of the offence.
“To execute Salar Shadizadi, who was a child at the time of his arrest, flies in the face of international law. The Iranian authorities must immediately halt any plans to carry out the execution and ensure that Salar Shadizadi’s death sentence is commuted without delay,” said Said Boumedouha, Deputy Director of Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Programme.
“The Iranian authorities’ pledges to respect children’s rights ring disturbingly hollow when they plan the execution of a juvenile offender just months before Iran’s review session at the UN Committee on the Rights of the Chid.”

At least 72 juvenile offenders are believed to have been executed in Iran between 2005 and 2014 and at least 160 juvenile offenders are believed to be on death row. International law strictly prohibits the use of death penalty for crimes committed by persons below 18 years of age.
The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child is scheduled to review Iran’s children’s rights record in
January 2016.
Earlier this month, Amnesty International exposed the shocking surge in executions in Iran during 2015. The reasons behind this year’s spike are unclear but the majority of those put to death in 2015 were convicted on drug charges.

Islamic Regime in Iran and the continued Execution of Prisoners ....

The Killing Machine of the Islamic Regime in Iran doesn't want to stop , instead of keeping the criminals in prison and trying to use rehab programs ,it send them to the gallows group by group , this is the major violation of human rights .

Report today by HRANA indicates that;  five prisoners were sent to death gallows today in Shahab prison in the city of Kerman and three others were sent to solitary confinement for execution in Bandar Abbas city.
Among the executed one was women and the rest were men and they had drug trafficking charges.
The officials of the judiciary keep most of the execution secret to the last hours , violating the rights of prisoners.

According to a report , in Iran from 2005-2014 at least 72 juveniles ( at the time of crime ) were executed and 160 other juvenile who have committed criminal act  are sentenced to death and are awaiting their execution.

According to a report by Amnesty International , Iran has signed the International convention on citizen and political rights and based on Islamic Republics signature under this agreement , they must not execute people who are under the age of 18 ( juveniles ).

Why is it so hard for the regime to understand that, they can give chance to these prisoners and keep them in prison and use different rehab program to make them new person .........? ????

Detained US journalist used in Iranian power struggle

Published on Wednesday 22 April 2015.

Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the way rival government factions in Iran are using the case of detained Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian for political purposes in an unrelenting struggle for power.
Rezaian, who completes his ninth month in detention today, is to face trial on several charges including spying, his lawyer reported two days ago. He has US and Iranian dual nationality.
Arrested in a completely illegal manner by Revolutionary Guards on 22 July 2014, Rezaian has been held ever since in the security wing of Tehran’s Evin prison. Like other detained journalists, he has been subjected to to a greal of a pressure, including long spells of solitary confinement, in order to extract a confession for use in a trial.
His lawyer, Leila Ahsan, told Agence France-Presse on 20 April that he is accused of spying, cooperating with hostile governments, gathering confidential information and anti-government propaganda. She added that her meeting with Rezaian on 20 April was their first since she took the case at the start of March.
Farsnews, a news agency linked to the Revolutionary Guards, already reported on 12 April, a week before her announcement, that Rezaian woud be tried for “selling business and industrial information to the CIA.”
Responding to the report the same day, Washington Post editor Martin Baron described the allegation as absurd and condemned the fact that Rezaian had been denied any legal advice for the past nine months.
Vatan-é Emrooz, an extremist daily that supports the Revolutionary Guards and former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, ran a front-page story on 18 April that was headlined “Unveiling Jason’s secrets.” It accused Rezaian of infiltrating the government and various institutions to uncover the methods used by Iran to circumvent international sactions.
Iranian opponents of the nuclear accord with the United States and better relations with the international community have been referring to the Rezaian case since 3 April, and this is no coincidence because Rezaian was arrested with the aim of being used in this all-out war betweeen rival ruling factions,” said Reza Moini, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran/Afghanistan desk.
“Unfortunately, the governments led by Barack Obama and Hassan Rouhani let slip an opportunity to include human rights and the release of journalists as one of the priorities in their talks. We call for the immediate release of Jason Rezaian and all the other detained journalists and bloggers.”
Revolutionary Guards in plain clothes arrested Rezaian at his Tehran home on 22 July along with his wife, Yeganeh Salehi – a journalist working for The National, a newspaper based in the United Arab Emirates – and two other US citizens.
Their apartment was searched and ransacked, and all computers and electronic devices were seized. The two other US citizens were released provisionally a month later. After payment of a large sum in bail, Salehi was freed provisionally on 4 October pending trial.
Ever since his arrest, Rezaian’s family in the United States has been pressing the Obama administration to make his release a priority.
In a statement issued on 2 April, Rezaian’s brother, Ali, said: “Now that the framework agreement is in place, we call on the Iranian leadership to review the evidence their underlings claim to have against Jason.”
More than 400,000 people have so far signed a petition for Rezaian’s release that Reporters Without Borders has relayed. Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire joined a dozen well-known media figures, including Noam Chomsky, Anderson Cooper, Christiane Amanpour, Marty Baron and National Press Club president John Hughes, in writing to Iranian judicial system chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani requesting Rezaian’s immediate release.
Rezaian is not the only information provider with dual citizenship currently held in Iran. A Tehran court sentenced Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, who has dual Iranian and British citizenship, on 27 May 2014 to 20 years in prison, a sentence that was reduced to five years at the start of this month. Farideh Shahgholi, who has dual Iranian and German citizenship, is serving a three-year jail term. Both were arrested in connection with their activities on Facebook and other social networks.
President Obama half-heartedly requested Rezaian’s release in his Iranian New Year greeting on 20 March. The British and German authorities have not so far issued any official statement about the detention of their citizens. It is time the international community seriously tackled the Iranian authorities about respect for fundamental rights and the release of detained journalists and online activists.
