Tehran, Apr. 15 – A teenager was sentenced to death for a crime he is alleged to have committed when he was 17 years old, according to a state-run daily.

The boy who was only identified by his first name Saeid is to be executed shortly, the Ettemad daily reported.

He was accused of stabbing another 17-year-old boy, who later died of his injury, near a Pool centre in Islamshahr two year ago, west of the capital.

The State Supreme Court upheld the initial death sentence handed down to Saeid by a Tehran court, and he is facing imminent execution.

Another 17-year-old boy and his father will be executed by hanging on Saturday after being convicted of rape and theft.

The execution of Mousa Ali-Mohammadi and his son Rasoul will take place at dawn on Saturday before which each will receive 74 lashes.

Mousa Ali-Mohammadi is due to be hanged in public, while his son will be simultaneously hanged in Isfahan prison.

Iran is a member of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, yet routinely carries out death penalties on children under the age of 18.

The Independent Association of Iranian Lawyers said in a statement on Thursday that the execution of minors was, “In complete breach of international standards and against the interests of the Iranian people”.
