Safar Angoti who committed a crime when he was 17 years old will be executed in public tomorrow by Islamic Republic of Iran.

Safar is the fourth juvenile offenders who will be executed this year despite the fact that Islamic Republic of Iran is a signatory to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which stipulates that members cannot execute convicts found guilty of committing crimes as minors. The imposition of the death penalty for juvenile offenders represents the ultimate rejection of the International law.

We urgently request the international community to swiftly act and pressure the Islamic Republic of Iran Supreme Court to abolish the practice of executing juvenile offenders.
