The Green Party of Iran demands the commutation of an Iranian teenager's death sentence

The judicial court of the Iranian regime has sentenced 17-year-old Moreza Amini Moghadam to death and 13-year-old Haamed Nazemi to 15 years in prison. The teenagers were not given access to a lawyer during their hurried, one session trial. They are accused of killing a pro-government militant (Basij) commander in a street quarrel and were condemned less than one week after the incident.

The Green Party of Iran calls for the commutation of Moreza Amini Moghadam's death sentence, and asks Green Parties and human rights organizations throughout the world to pressure the Iranian regime to hold a fair trial with lawyers for the accused teenagers.
