Iran postpones execution of man arrested aged 17: rights groups

Published

Iran has postponed the internationally criticised planned execution of a man arrested for murder when he was 17, but he remains at imminent risk of being hanged, Amnesty International and other rights groups said Wednesday.

Arman Abdolali, now 25, was given the verdict after a trial that rights groups described as unfair. His scheduled execution had renewed international criticism of Iran’s use of capital punishment.

Abdolali had been moved to solitary confinement in the Rajai Shahr prison in Karaj, west of Tehran, in preparation for his execution on Wednesday, and held a final meeting with his parents on Tuesday.

But the execution did not go ahead, although there are fears it may take place on Saturday, said Amnesty and the Oslo-based Iran Human Rights (IHR).

The “execution is now postponed to Saturday, 16 October. He remains at risk of imminent execution in Iran. He was just 17 when arrested,” Amnesty said on Twitter.

IHR, which monitors the use of the death penalty in Iran, said Abdolali was still being held in solitary confinement, and quoted sources as saying the execution would take place on Saturday.

Amnesty says Abdolali was sentenced to death in December 2015 after being convicted of murder following his girlfriend’s disappearance the year before, but in “a grossly unfair trial” by a court that “relied on torture-tainted ‘confessions’.”

IHR said Abdolali confessed to the murder at the time of his arrest, but the body was never found and he later withdrew his confessions.

Rights groups say international conventions signed by Iran prohibit it from executing anyone for a crime committed while aged under 18.

Iran executes more people each year than any nation except China. IHR said at least 64 juvenile offenders have been executed in Iran over the past 10 years, with at least four executed in 2020.

In a sign of the international concern over the case, Germany’s human rights commissioner Baerbel Kofler said carrying out the execution would be an “unacceptable breach of international law”.

“Arman Abdolali was a minor at the time of the alleged crime. There is credible evidence that his confession was obtained under torture and that the conviction thus contradicts fundamental principles of the rule of law,” she said in a statement released by the German foreign ministry.

A Thika GK prison officer has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping a stranded 21-year-old woman, while pretending to be accommodating her in his house last week.

The Kenyan prison officer identified as Amos Momanyi, allegedly raped the mother of one after he hosted her for a night in his house on October 4, after failed attempts to trace her husband, a purported prison warder at the same prison.

The woman reportedly came to the prison around 10 pm to search for her husband, but after a failed attempt to trace him, the suspect offered to help her for the night since they came from the same tribe.

A statement released after his arrest reads;

“The accused officer volunteered to house the complainant since they come from the same region after failed attempts to trace her purported husband at the prison quarters. He went back to sleep at the guard room, leaving her in his house. During the night, the accused returned to the house wild and raped her.”

Commenting on the incident, the woman said she was searching for her husband after he failed to continue providing for their three-year-old son. She said at first the officer looked supportive, only for him to turn wild in the night

The rape victim said;

“He left the house for me but deep in the night, he came back. He threatened to shoot me if I raised alarm. The next day, I went to the prison authorities to continue searching for my husband, but I still couldn’t trace him.”

The woman reported the incident to authorities after she was taken to Thika Police Station for help in tracing her husband.
