IRAN: BRUTAL EXECUTION OF A YOUNG PRISONER WHO WAS 15 YEARS OLD WHEN ARRESTED
August 10, 2017:
In the early morning of August 10, the mullahs’ regime once again executed a teenager. The regime hanged Alireza Tajiki, a young prisoner arrested at the age of 15, after serving six years imprisonment in the Adelabad prison in Shiraz, southern Iran.

This crime took place despite repeated requests from human rights and international authorities.
Alireza Tajiki was transferred to solitary confinement six years ago after being arrested, and was tortured for forced confession despite being a teenager.
His case was full of ambiguous questions, and his family repeatedly requested a retrial; a request that was never answered.
According to regime officials, 5300 prisoners, most of whom are between the ages of 20 and 30, are sentenced to death.
