The life of this young man is in danger, Islamic Republic judiciary plans to hang this boy , dont let it happen! They already hanged Behnoud.

Safar Angooti was convicted of murder when he was 17. According to E'temad, in April 2008 he stabbed a rival suitor who was talking to a girl he liked and was sentenced to death. Safar Angooti claimed that he had killed the man but not intentionally. He was previously due to be executed on 4 May 2009 but this was halted at the last minute. On 4 October 2009, Mohammad Mostafaei, the defence lawyer for both Behnoud Shojaee and Safar Angooti, was informed of the dates when they will be executed. However, the E’temad report suggests that Safar Angouti may be executed on 19 October. Mohammad Mostafaei has written to the Head of the Judiciary asking him to order stays of execution in both cases. Executions of those under 18 at the time of their alleged offence is strictly prohibited under international law.
