Juvenile offender at imminent risk as Iran continues execution spree

29 July 2015, 15:56 UTC
Salar Shadizadi scheduled to be executed on 1 August for crime committed when he was 15 years old.

A juvenile offender in Iran is at imminent risk of execution amid a horrifying rise in the number of executions in the country, Amnesty International said today.
Salar Shadizadi, who is now 24, is due to be hanged on Saturday 1 August, after he was convicted of murdering a friend in 2007. He was 15 years old at the time of the offence.
“To execute Salar Shadizadi, who was a child at the time of his arrest, flies in the face of international law. The Iranian authorities must immediately halt any plans to carry out the execution and ensure that Salar Shadizadi’s death sentence is commuted without delay,” said Said Boumedouha, Deputy Director of Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Programme.
“The Iranian authorities’ pledges to respect children’s rights ring disturbingly hollow when they plan the execution of a juvenile offender just months before Iran’s review session at the UN Committee on the Rights of the Chid.”

At least 72 juvenile offenders are believed to have been executed in Iran between 2005 and 2014 and at least 160 juvenile offenders are believed to be on death row. International law strictly prohibits the use of death penalty for crimes committed by persons below 18 years of age.
The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child is scheduled to review Iran’s children’s rights record in
January 2016.
Earlier this month, Amnesty International exposed the shocking surge in executions in Iran during 2015. The reasons behind this year’s spike are unclear but the majority of those put to death in 2015 were convicted on drug charges.

Islamic Regime in Iran and the continued Execution of Prisoners ....

The Killing Machine of the Islamic Regime in Iran doesn't want to stop , instead of keeping the criminals in prison and trying to use rehab programs ,it send them to the gallows group by group , this is the major violation of human rights .

Report today by HRANA indicates that;  five prisoners were sent to death gallows today in Shahab prison in the city of Kerman and three others were sent to solitary confinement for execution in Bandar Abbas city.
Among the executed one was women and the rest were men and they had drug trafficking charges.
The officials of the judiciary keep most of the execution secret to the last hours , violating the rights of prisoners.

According to a report , in Iran from 2005-2014 at least 72 juveniles ( at the time of crime ) were executed and 160 other juvenile who have committed criminal act  are sentenced to death and are awaiting their execution.

According to a report by Amnesty International , Iran has signed the International convention on citizen and political rights and based on Islamic Republics signature under this agreement , they must not execute people who are under the age of 18 ( juveniles ).

Why is it so hard for the regime to understand that, they can give chance to these prisoners and keep them in prison and use different rehab program to make them new person .........? ????

Detained US journalist used in Iranian power struggle

Published on Wednesday 22 April 2015.

Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the way rival government factions in Iran are using the case of detained Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian for political purposes in an unrelenting struggle for power.
Rezaian, who completes his ninth month in detention today, is to face trial on several charges including spying, his lawyer reported two days ago. He has US and Iranian dual nationality.
Arrested in a completely illegal manner by Revolutionary Guards on 22 July 2014, Rezaian has been held ever since in the security wing of Tehran’s Evin prison. Like other detained journalists, he has been subjected to to a greal of a pressure, including long spells of solitary confinement, in order to extract a confession for use in a trial.
His lawyer, Leila Ahsan, told Agence France-Presse on 20 April that he is accused of spying, cooperating with hostile governments, gathering confidential information and anti-government propaganda. She added that her meeting with Rezaian on 20 April was their first since she took the case at the start of March.
Farsnews, a news agency linked to the Revolutionary Guards, already reported on 12 April, a week before her announcement, that Rezaian woud be tried for “selling business and industrial information to the CIA.”
Responding to the report the same day, Washington Post editor Martin Baron described the allegation as absurd and condemned the fact that Rezaian had been denied any legal advice for the past nine months.
Vatan-é Emrooz, an extremist daily that supports the Revolutionary Guards and former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, ran a front-page story on 18 April that was headlined “Unveiling Jason’s secrets.” It accused Rezaian of infiltrating the government and various institutions to uncover the methods used by Iran to circumvent international sactions.
Iranian opponents of the nuclear accord with the United States and better relations with the international community have been referring to the Rezaian case since 3 April, and this is no coincidence because Rezaian was arrested with the aim of being used in this all-out war betweeen rival ruling factions,” said Reza Moini, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran/Afghanistan desk.
“Unfortunately, the governments led by Barack Obama and Hassan Rouhani let slip an opportunity to include human rights and the release of journalists as one of the priorities in their talks. We call for the immediate release of Jason Rezaian and all the other detained journalists and bloggers.”
Revolutionary Guards in plain clothes arrested Rezaian at his Tehran home on 22 July along with his wife, Yeganeh Salehi – a journalist working for The National, a newspaper based in the United Arab Emirates – and two other US citizens.
Their apartment was searched and ransacked, and all computers and electronic devices were seized. The two other US citizens were released provisionally a month later. After payment of a large sum in bail, Salehi was freed provisionally on 4 October pending trial.
Ever since his arrest, Rezaian’s family in the United States has been pressing the Obama administration to make his release a priority.
In a statement issued on 2 April, Rezaian’s brother, Ali, said: “Now that the framework agreement is in place, we call on the Iranian leadership to review the evidence their underlings claim to have against Jason.”
More than 400,000 people have so far signed a petition for Rezaian’s release that Reporters Without Borders has relayed. Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire joined a dozen well-known media figures, including Noam Chomsky, Anderson Cooper, Christiane Amanpour, Marty Baron and National Press Club president John Hughes, in writing to Iranian judicial system chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani requesting Rezaian’s immediate release.
Rezaian is not the only information provider with dual citizenship currently held in Iran. A Tehran court sentenced Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, who has dual Iranian and British citizenship, on 27 May 2014 to 20 years in prison, a sentence that was reduced to five years at the start of this month. Farideh Shahgholi, who has dual Iranian and German citizenship, is serving a three-year jail term. Both were arrested in connection with their activities on Facebook and other social networks.
President Obama half-heartedly requested Rezaian’s release in his Iranian New Year greeting on 20 March. The British and German authorities have not so far issued any official statement about the detention of their citizens. It is time the international community seriously tackled the Iranian authorities about respect for fundamental rights and the release of detained journalists and online activists.

“Now comes the time to focus on human rights in Iran,” UN expert welcomes opportunity created by nuclear deal

GENEVA (15 July 2015) – United Nations Special Rapporteur Ahmed Shaheed  today called on the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the international community to seize the opportunity created by the agreement on Iran’s nuclear programme to address the human rights situation in the country.  

Mr. Shaheed congratulated all parties to the negotiation for reaching an agreement on Iran’s nuclear programme, and noted that the lifting of economic sanctions will have a beneficial multiplier effect on the human rights situation in the country, especially on the enjoyment of economic, social and cultural rights. “Peace, development and human rights are deeply interlinked,” he stressed.

Since 2012, the expert has been warning about the apparent ineffectiveness of humanitarian safeguards against the impact of economic sanctions on the country’s human rights situation in his reports* to the UN General Assembly and the Human Rights Council. The reports outline Iran’ s increasing economic hardships and point to staggering inflation, among other issues, as cause for serious concern about protections for the rights to food and health in the country.

“Economic sanctions have directly or indirectly affected all sectors of the country,” Mr. Shaheed remarked. “They appear to have contributed to the conditions of austerity including the rising costs of basic commodities, and have seemingly impacted access to medicines, and medical supplies. These circumstances have had a dramatic effect on the standard of living and likely further undermined the full enjoyment of a range of civil, social and economic rights. ”

“It is my sincere hope that the successful conclusion of the nuclear talks, which will enable the lifting of economic sanctions, will allow President Hassan Rouhani to focus on his other campaign pledges, specifically those to promote the enjoyment of all human rights by the Iranian people,” Mr. Shaheed said.

The Special Rapporteur urged the Government of Iran to spare no effort in addressing long-standing human rights concerns repeatedly raised by the UN human rights mechanisms, especially the alarming surge in executions this past year, increasing restrictions on freedom of expression and peaceful assemblies, women’s rights, discrimination against religious and ethnic minorities, and the ongoing prosecution of journalists, lawyers and human rights defenders.

Mr. Shaheed renewed his call on the Iranian authorities to engage constructively and meaningfully with his mandate by allowing a visit to the country, and reiterated his desire to work with the Iranian officials to address human rights challenges in Iran.

(*) Check all the Special Rapporteur’s reports:


Ahmed Shaheed (the Maldives) is a Visiting Professor at Essex University, UK; a former member of the Maldivian presidential Commission Investigating Corruption; and a foreign policy advisor to the President of the Maldives. Mr. Shaheed was Foreign Minister of the Maldives from 2005 to 2007 and from 2008 to 2010. He led the country’s efforts to sign and ratify all nine international human rights Conventions and to implement them in law and practice.

UN human rights expert hails nuclear deal with Iran, and calls for the immediate lifting of sanctions

GENEVA (14 July 2015) – The new United Nations Special Rapporteur on human rights and international sanctions, Idriss Jazairy, welcomed the nuclear agreement reached between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the group of P5+1 (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany) announced today, and called for the various sanctions and unilateral coercive measures in force against Iran to be promptly lifted.

“In addition to international sanctions authorized by UN Security Council resolutions, Iran has been subjected for years to a range of additional, unilateral coercive measures decided by a number of States individually or in the framework of various regional organizations,” Mr. Jazairy said.

“The stockpiling of sanctions and unilateral coercive measures against Iran, some of which went well beyond what was required by the Security Council, has had a significant adverse effect on the country’s economy, its population and ultimately on the enjoyment of human rights of the people of Iran, including its right to food, its right to health and its right to development,” the expert noted.

The Special Rapporteur drew special attention to the “indiscriminate character” of measures such as the ban on the use of international interbank financial telecommunications, or of measures having the effect in practice of impeding access to medicine and medical treatment.

“When a group of diverse targeted unilateral coercive measures converge on the same country, the outcome may become a comprehensive coercive measure,” Mr. Jazairy explained, stressing the fact that “the superimposition of unilateral coercive measures on legitimate Security Council sanctions may distort the purpose of the latter, putting their initial balance out of kilter.”

The independent expert urged all countries which have imposed coercive measures on Iran to lift them promptly and with immediate effect, in line with the commitment contained in the agreement to comprehensively lift UN Security Council, multilateral and national nuclear-related sanctions, including steps on access in areas of trade, technology, finance, and energy.  

“I hope this is a vessel of a trend. We are witnesses of the fact that change is possible,” the Special Rapporteur said referring to the new developments on lifting sanctions and unilateral coercive measures. “I believe that this approach should be increasingly considered and that finally diplomatic negotiated settlements should be given prominence over unilateral coercive measures.”    

The UN Human Rights Council established the new Special Rapporteur’s mandate in September 2014, in response to increasing concern by the UN human rights system and the international community about the negative impact of sanctions, including unilateral coercive measures, on the enjoyment of human rights, particularly their negative impact on the human rights of the civilian population of targeted.


Mr. Idriss Jazairy was appointed by the Human Rights Council as the first Special Rapporteur on the negative impact of the unilateral coercive measures on the enjoyment of human rights. He took office on 1 May 2015. Mr. Jazairy has extensive experience in the fields of international relations and human rights with the Algerian Foreign Ministry, the UN human rights system and international NGOs. He holds a M.A.(Oxford) in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, and an M.P.A. (Harvard). He also graduated from the Ecole nationale d’Administration (France). Mr. Jazairy is the author of books and of a large number of articles in the international press on development, human rights and current affairs. Learn more, log on to:

Iran: Absence of human rights from the negotiating table is a political mistake

In light of the expected nuclear deal between the P5+1 and Iran, FIDH remains deeply troubled that the negotiations have failed to include any mention of human rights.

This is despite numerous demands over the past year by the EU, FIDH and previous UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, among others, who have called on the international community to include human rights issues in all of its dealings with Iran.
Rapprochement between Iran and the West is in some respects a good thing, especially if it leads to an end to the sanctions. But the failure to include human rights in the negotiations is a missed opportunity and a political mistake that will have a palpable effect on the Iranian people, declared Karim Lahidji, FIDH President.
These nuclear negotiations and apparent political rapprochement with the West have resulted in Iran’s President Rouhani being hailed by some as a reformist. In reality, the human rights situation in Iran since Rouhani’s election in 2013 has not improved. Indeed, in an op-ed published in June 2014, FIDH’s President Karim Lahdiji denounced the lack of progress on human rights under Rouhani’s administration. In the year since, the human rights situation in Iran has only deteriorated, the repression of basic freedoms continues and grave human rights violations persist. Everyday, women as well as ethnic and religious minorities suffer from discrimination. Due process is still denied to prisoners, particularly prisoners of conscience. [1]
Of particular concern is the ongoing harassment, targeting, and arbitrary arrest of human rights defenders in Iran, including three FIDH members: Abdolfattah Soltani, Mohammad Seifzadeh, and Nargess Mohammadi.
To learn more about the experience of human rights defenders in Iran today, and how they have persevered, visit our #ForFreedom campaign website or read our recent profile of the Iranian human right lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh.

Free - Libérez Esmail

Esmail Abdi, a leader of the Iranian Teachers' Trade Association, was arrested June 27 following his attempt to obtain a visa to attend the 7th Education International World Congress in Ottawa, Canada July 21-26. After his passport was confiscated at the border, he was ordered to return to Tehran to meet with prosecutors. However, upon reporting to the prosecutors' office, he was arrested while more than 70 teachers waited outside in support. Abdi's arrest comes after nationwide rallies were held earlier this year to protest wages that leave the majority of teachers below the poverty line. 

Education International is deeply concerned about the repression facing representatives of the Coordinating Council of Iranian Teachers Trade Associations.
Esmail Abdi, un des responsables de l'Association professionnelle des enseignants iraniens, a été arrêté le 27 juin, suite à sa tentative d'obtenir un visa pour participer à la 7ème Congrès de l’Internationale de l’Éducation à Ottawa, au Canada, du 21 au 26 juillet.
Après la confiscation de son passeport à la frontière, il lui a été ordonné de retourner à Téhéran pour rencontrer des procureurs. Il a été arrêté dès sa présentation au bureau des procureurs où 70 enseignantes et enseignants manifestaient leur solidarité à l'extérieur. L'arrestation d’Abdi fait suite à des rassemblements dans tout le pays au premier semestre pour protester contre les salaires qui, pour la majorité des enseignantes et des enseignants, sont inférieurs au seuil de pauvreté. 
L'Internationale de l'Education est fortement préoccupée par la répression des représentants du Conseil de coordination des associations d'enseignants iraniens.
