Juveniles still to face the noose

Juveniles still to face the noose
by SCE Campaign

In a statement by Amnesty international titled "Juveniles still to face the noose: authorities’ word games exposed" stated:

"Amnesty International deplores the re-affirmation by a senior Iranian judicial official that Iran will continue to judicially execute juvenile offenders, clarifying a misleading statement he made on 16 October."

The organization is concerned that the 16 October statement, which stated that Iran would no longer execute anyone below the age of 18, irrespective of the crime allegedly committed, played with words and was intended to mislead Iranian and international public opinion."
