Iran: Halt Milad Azimi’s Execution (UA 245/15)




Iranian juvenile offender Milad Azimi may be at risk of execution in connection with the murder of a man when he was 17 years old. His trial was grossly unfair and relied on “confessions” extracted through torture. 
1) Please write immediately in in Persian, English, Arabic, Spanish, French or your own language:
  • Urging the Iranian authorities to halt any plans to execute Milad Azimi immediately, and ensure that his death sentence is quashed and he is granted a retrial that complies with international fair trial standards, without recourse to the death penalty; 
  • Calling on them to investigate the allegations that Milad Azimi was tortured or otherwise ill-treated and bring those responsible to justice;
  • Reminding them that Iran has ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, both of which strictly prohibit the use of the death penalty for crimes committed below the age of 18.
