According to child rights lawyer Mohammad Mostafaei, two juveniles are in danger of execution. In his newsblog he reports of Reza Padashi and Hossein Haghi, both convicted of alleged offences at the age of 16. He said that Reza’s family have collected 60 million toman (approx $60,000) to pay the victim’s family blood money, but the family has requested 150 million toman ($150,000).
Both files are ready to be sent to the Head of Judiciary, Ayatollah Larijani, for final review and
approval of execution. Once confirmed, the files would be sent to the executioner’s office and executions could take place shortly.
Stop Child Executions have been following the cases of these two boys for a couple of years.
