Juvenile at risk of execution

No to the death penaltyWith all the current focus on Saudi Arabia and their barbaric activities, we forget that across the water is Iran which is the second highest executioner of its people after China.  This urgent action concerns a Hamid Ahmadi who was 17 when arrested for allegedly stabbing another person.  He was not allowed access to a lawyer or to his family and was allegedly tortured into confessing.  He is now 24 and is being tried for a second time.  Attached is a document which gives all the details and background.

If you have time we would be grateful if you could write.
