Child executions in Iran

The Iranian authorities have executed at least 42 juvenile offenders since 1990, according to Amnesty International. The organisation defines a "juvenile offender" as a person convicted of crimes they committed when they were under the age of 18. It is believed that over 100 minors remain on death row. Tomorrow the Foreign Policy Centre is publishing a report, Child Executions in Iran. Jane is joined by Nazanin Afshin-Jam, President of Stop Child Execution and co-author of the report, and Geraldine Van Bueren, Professor of International Human Rights Law at Queen Mary, University of London to discuss Iran’s record of executing juvenile offenders and Iran’s commitments under international law?
