Please sign the Amnesty International appeal to save Saeed Jazee from execution:
Stop the execution of Saeed Jazee
Saeed Jazee was convicted of the murder of a 22-year-old man, which took place in 2003, and sentenced to qesas (retribution). The Supreme
Court upheld his death sentence and his case has been sent for final approval to the Head of the Judiciary, Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi.
Under Article 206 (b) of Iran's Criminal Code, murder is classed as premeditated "in cases where the murderer intentionally makes an action which is inherently lethal, even if [the murderer] does not intend to kill the person."
As a state party to both the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC),Iran has undertaken not to execute child offenders, those convicted of crimes committed when they were under 18. However, since 1990 Iran has executed at least 28 child offenders, six of them in 2007. At least 79 child offenders are now on death row in Iran. This number may be even
higher as at least a further 15 Afghan child offenders have reportedly been sentenced to death.
