Iran sentences minor to death

Hojatol-Islam val Moslemin Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejeyi, the spokesman of the Judiciary said in a news conference regarding the rounding up of satellite equipment by the State Security Forces, “If we all abide by the law it is very good. If the people follow the law it will definitely be better.  Using satellite [watching satellite channels] has been illegal since 1994 and the actions of importers and installers are also crimes and if [satellite equipment is installed in clear view] the SSF can deal with it”…

In answer to a question regarding the current status of the case of the murderer of Rohollah Dadashi he stressed, “A death sentence has been issued for the main [culprit] and the implementation of the sentence depends on if the parents of the victim ask for retribution or not; of course until now they have requested retribution but we have to see what decision they will make in the final stages”. (ISNA state-run News Agency – Aug. 15, 2011)

(Note: According to state run media, the so-called murderer of Rohollah Dadashi is 17 years old and is considered a minor.)
