17-year-old Alireza Mollasoltani executed

The Iranian regime hanged 17-year-old Alireza Mollasoltani publicly in Karaj today. He was accused of having stabbed Ruhollah Dadashi, a weightlifting champion.

To justify the execution of a minor, Ali Rezwanmanesh, a representative from the judiciary, said that Alireza wasn’t actually a minor as he had already reached his religious maturity according to Sharia. The years used in Sharia follow the lunar calendar and are therefore shorter.

One wonders how long the judiciary must have thought about this ludicrous excuse to justify the murder of yet another Iranian teenager in front of the world.
