Tehran, Oct. 16 – A 13-year-old schoolgirl has been sentenced to stoning in the town of Marivan (northwestern Iran). Zhila Izadi was condemned to death by stoning after giving birth to a child in prison 2 weeks ago.

She was accused of committing ‘moral sin’ and giving birth to an ‘unholy child’. Her brother a 15-year-old boy who was also accused and is currently in prison in Tehran was given a sentence of 150 lashes, in accordance with Islamic laws.

On Aug. 29 the Judiciary sentenced a woman, named Hajieh Esmaeel, to death by stoning in Iranian port city of Jolfa. Her fate remains unknown.

On Aug. 15 of this year the Iranian regime publicly hanged a 16-year-old girl by the name of Atefeh Rajabi in the Iranian town of Neka for her ‘sharp tongue’.

Last month the Iranian regime sentenced a 16-year-old Afghani boy by the name of Feyz Mohammad to execution in public for alleged drug smuggling.

As a party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Iran is bound not to execute child offenders. Both treaties provide that capital punishment shall not be imposed for offences committed by persons under 18 year of age at the time of committing the offence.
