INU -According to the Iran Human Rights website, authorities at Karaj Central Prison executed an inmate on Tuesday who had been only 16 years old at the time of his offense. Although the alleged murderer had been for approximately 30 years before his death sentence was implemented, the Islamic Republic has a long history of keeping juvenile offenders in prison until they have passed the age of majority, at which point executions are carried out seemingly arbitrarily. Often, these cases involve much less time spent in jail, as well as much less serious crimes such as drug trafficking.
