Iran Reportedly Executes Man Who Was Minor At Time Of Alleged Crime

An Iranian man who was arrested for murder at the age of 17 has been executed despite international appeals for his life to be spared.

Arman Abdolali, aged 25, was found guilty for the alleged murder of his girlfriend — who went missing in 2014. The body of the alleged murder victim has never been found.

Iran Human Rights (IHR) said Abdolali confessed to the murder at the time of his arrest, but later he withdrew the confession.

Amnesty International has called his trial “grossly unfair” by a court that “relied on torture-tainted ‘confessions.’”
