    • Death penalty in Iran: A State terror policy - Special Update for 11th World Day against the Death Penalty
      Document published by International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) in 2013
      The change of administration in the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) and taking of office by a new president on 3 August 2013 has not brought any change as far as the death penalty is concerned. Between the 14 June presidential election and 1st October, more than 200 people have been reportedly executed, including possibly three people who may have been younger than 18 at the time of the commission of the alleged crimes. Against this backdrop, FIDH and its member organisation, LDDHI, have decided to publish the present report to analyse the new penal laws in force in Iran that are invoked consistently to violate the right to life in general and to execute child offenders. Coinciding with 10 October 2013, World Day against the Death Penalty, this report aims to serve as an update on the current state of application of the death penalty in the IRI.
