Juvenile Offender Arman Abdolali is Buried in Tehran
Arman Abdolali, a young Iranian man sentenced to death for a crime allegedly committed when he was a minor, was hanged on November 24. The execution was carried out despite the weak case against him and pleas to Tehran from human rights organizations to spare his life. The young man was buried in the presence of his parents and friends.
Abdolali had been accused of murdering his then-girlfriend Ghazaleh Shakur in 2014. He was 17 at the time and confessed to the killing at age 18. But he later retracted his confession, saying it had been extracted under torture. He was sentenced to death in December 2015 nonetheless.
