Karaj, Aug 31 – A court here has sentenced a 16-year-old boy to death on charges of drug trafficking.

Feiz Mohammad, who is from neighboring Afghanistan, was tried and sentenced to death by a judge in Branch 122 of the Special Juvenile Court of Karaj, 40 kilometers west of the capital, Tehran.

Mohammad was accused of stealing seven kilograms of pure morphine from his employer, a ranch owner, and giving it to a group of Afghan immigrants distributing drugs. He faced no other charges.

The judge, Loqham Kia Pasha, has passed death sentences for dozens of minors in Karaj, well-informed sources said.

As a party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Iran is bound not to execute child offenders. Both treaties provide that capital punishment shall not be imposed for offences committed by persons under 18 year of age at the time of committing the offence.
