Amnesty Action: For an anytime threatened execution at that time of underage Kurd Saman Naseem!
These Amnesty action is against an execution at that time of underage Kurd Saman Naseem could be done at any time! Here is an excerpt from Amnesty:
Iranian juvenile offender Saman Naseem has been convicted of taking part in armed activities against the state and killing a member of the Revolutionary Guards, while he was under 18. He could be executed at any time as his death sentence has been sent to the Office of the Implementation of Sentences.
Saman Naseem, now aged 21, is a member of Iran’s Kurdish minority. He was sentenced to death in April 2013 by a criminal court in Mahabad, West Azerbaijan Province, for “enmity against God” (moharebeh) and “corruption on earth” (ifsad fil-arz) because of his membership of the Kurdish armed opposition group,Party For Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK), and for taking part in armed activities against the Revolutionary Guards. His death sentence was upheld by the Supreme Court in December 2013.
Saman Naseem had initially been sentenced to death in January 2012 by the Revolutionary Court of Mahabad but the sentence was overturned by the Supreme Court in August 2012 and sent to a lower court for a retrial as he had been under the age of 18 at the time of the crimes of which he has been convicted. According to the court documents, during early investigations Saman Naseem admitted firing towards Revolutionary Guards forces in July 2011. However, he retracted this during the first court session and said that he had only fired into the air and had not been aware of the content of the written “confessions” he was forced to sign as he had been kept blindfolded while he was interrogated. Saman Naseem was allowed no access to his lawyer during early investigations and was allegedly tortured or otherwise ill-treated.

Please take action! Death penalty is not an option, especially not at that time of minors, which is banned by International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child!
