Iran: Salar Shadizadi Scheduled Execution August 1 - URGENT ACTIONS from Elise Auerbach, Amnesty International

Amnesty International USA
Dear Friends:
      Salar Shadizadi is scheduled to be executed in two days---Saturday August 1. We ask you to take action to urge Iranian authorities to stop this execution from happening. Salar Shadizadi was only fifteen when he allegedly committed this crime. Iran is one of the few countries that still execute juvenile offenders. Iran has already executed nearly 700 people this year, an alarming increase over last year, when the total number of executions was at least 743, already an alarming increase over 2013. Salar Shahizadi was permitted his last visitation with family yesterday. Please use the next couple of days to raise as much awareness about this case as possible so as to pressure the Iranian authorities to halt the execution. Below is contact information, a link to our media advisory, and below that the urgent action we issued on this case a couple of days ago. Thanks.

Best wishes,
Elise Auerbach (Iran country specialist, Amnesty International USA)
