DAILYKENN.com -- Few nations continue to execute minor offenders. Iran is one of the few, says Dr Ahmed Shaheed.
Shaheed is the United Nations Special Rapportuer on the Situation of Human Rights in Iran.
He claims three children were executed in Iran in 2015 and a staggering 160 remain on death row.
"[G]irls as young as nine lunar years and boys as young as 15 lunar years to death by hanging," he says.
There have been over 2,000 executions in Iran in the two years that Hassan Rouhani has been in office, more than in any similar period in the past 25 years. On April 20, 2014, Hassan Rouhani described these executions as “God’s commandments” and “laws of the parliament that belongs to the people.” — ncr-iran.org
