Two juvenile offenders facing execution

Three inmates were executed on Tuesday, April 18 in the prisons of Shiraz and Tabriz. 

Ten days prior to the executions, authorities in Adel Abad Prison of Shiraz had horrifically amputated the hand of one of the inmates. 

One of the two prisoners executed in Tabriz Central Prison was 28 years of age.

Furthermore, two prisoners who were arrested while under the age of 18 are now facing execution. 

Mehdi Bahlouli, 17 years of age when arrested, is currently held in solitary confinement of Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, west of Tehran. 

Peyman Barandah, arrested at the age of 16 for his alleged crime, is on death row in Shiraz Central Prison.

The Iranian Resistance calls on Iranians from all walks of life, especially the youth, to protest such vicious punishments and arbitrary executions, specifically the hanging of juveniles. 

It further calls on the international community to strongly condemn this unprecedented barbarity in the 21st century and hinge their relations with the Iranian regime on an immediate halt to executions and inhumane punishments.
