No to the death penaltyWe attach an urgent action concerning Iran, which along with Pakistan, China and Saudi Arabia are the world’s leading executioners of its citizens.  This concerns a juvenile who was 15 at the time of the alleged crime.  He was charged with the murder of a friend but was denied access to a lawyer at the investigation stage and he alleges he was tortured in custody.

His execution has been delayed to 10 August so this case is urgent.  It is believed that an astonishing 72 juveniles have been executed between 2005 and 2014 and around 160 are currently on death row.

Please write if you have time.
