Are you ( Islamic Republic of Iran ) with the convention or not?
Shireen Ebadi ( Founder of the" Association of Defenders of Human Rights" )-Tehran:
This gathering was to protest to issuing death sentences for person less than 18 years of age.
Since the government of Iran has joined the international convention for the rights of children and also in the convention the death sentence for children is banned, But still death sentences for children are being issued. On this reason, I demanded for a recent gathering in "Laleh Park" , which was cancelled, due to the government not issuing permit for the rally.
