The execution of Mohammad Reza Haddadi, a 21-year-old man, scheduled for 9 December, did not take place. No new execution date has been announced. He is held in Adelabad prison in Shiraz, southern Iran. Juvenile offenders have previously been executed without prior warning to their lawyers.
Mohammad Reza Haddadi was sentenced to death in 2004 for a murder he allegedly committed when he was 15 years old. He denies being involved in the murder. His death sentence was confirmed by the Supreme Court in July 2005. He was first scheduled for execution in October 2008, but it was stayed on the order of the Head of the Judiciary. His execution was then scheduled on 27 May 2009 and 16 July 2009.
Amnesty International is concerned that the prison authorities may go ahead with the execution without informing his lawyers in advance, as required under Iranian law. Two juvenile offenders, Behnam Zare’ and Reza Hejazi, were executed in Adelabad prison in August 2008 without their lawyer being informed.
Execution of those under the age of 18 at the time of their alleged offence is strictly prohibited by international law.
