Tehran, Iran, Feb. 18 – A judge at Tehran’s Appellate Court announced on Saturday that the Islamic Republic would continue to issue death verdicts for juvenile delinquents “without considering other available options”.

“Execution sentences will be issued to minors without considering other options”, Ahmad Mozaffari told the state-run news agency ILNA.

Mozaffari made the comments after Iranian courts issued execution sentences to a 15 year old and 16 year old, the report said.

The judge said one minor was sentenced to execution recently, despite the fact that examination by a government-appointed physician had shown that he was suffering from a psychiatric disorder.

State-run press have identified the 15-year-old on death row only by his first name Mohammad.
