Iran publicly executed two teenagers on Tuesday accusing them of raping a 13-year-old boy and having gay sex, according to Iran’s ISNA news agency.
The two teenagers were hanged in Edalat (Justice) Square in Mashhad, Iran’s second-largest city. They were only identified by their initials, M.A. and A.M.
Before their execution, the teenagers were held in prison for 14 months and lashed 228 times.
Ruhollah Rezazadeh, the lawyer for the youngest teenager, appealed to Tehran’s Supreme Court, saying his client was too young to be executed, but the court ordered him hanged.
While the teens admitted to having sex with each other, the London-based gay human rights group OutRage! believes the admissions were coerced under torture.
OutRage! also doubts that the 13-year-old was raped, noting that the crime was not mentioned by some key news agencies. The organization believes the alleged rape to be either a trumped-up charge or, it suggests, the 13-year-old was a willing participant.
Bloody fuck them sideways with a cactus.
Look at those poor kids:
May the judge of Mashhad get his reward from his ‘allah’ and rot in ‘hell’.
