Amnesty International condemns teenage execution in Iran

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), Amnesty International has criticized the execution of an Iranian teenager on Wednesday.

The organization says Abulfazl Chazani who was sentenced to death penalty by Iranian court over intentional murder, was executed in a prison in Qom.

He was arrested at the age of 14 and the execution was against all international laws and conventions which Iran has signed, Amnesty International says.

Earlier, human rights organizations had urged Iran’s government not to execute Abulfazl Chazani.

Iran and Saudi Arabia are at the top of the countries who exercise death penalty, something that has been criticized widely across the world. Iran is insisting on the death punishment for those with heavy crimes.
