Tehran, Feb. 27 – A middle-aged man and his teenage son are facing imminent execution after Iran’s Supreme Court upheld the death sentences handed down to them.

Moussa Ali, 45 years old, and his son Rasoul, 16 years old, were accused of robbery, rape, and kidnapping, according to the state-run daily Hamshahri.

Under Iranian law, girls above the age of nine and boys above the age of fifteen are considered as adults and could be executed for capital offences.
