Boy to be executed for Underage Homosexual Act, Take Ation!

The news was circulating the Persian media [Persian] and now has been announced by Amnesty International as a call for urgent action. Please link to the story and inform others. This has to be stopped.

Child offender Makwan Moloudzadeh, an Iranian Kurd, is believed to be at risk of imminent execution. He has reportedly been convicted of anal sex for the alleged rape of a 13-year-old boy. Makwan Moloudzadeh was aged 13 at the time of the alleged offence. His death sentence has been passed to the Office for the Implementation of Sentences and he is due to be executed in public, near his home.

...The witnesses and the two people who had pressed charges against him withdrew their claims after the trial. Under Iranian law, children (boys of up to 14.7 years) are to be flogged for homosexual acts.

... However, the judge relied on the "knowledge of the judge" to determine that penetration had taken place and that Makwan Moloudzadeh could be sentenced to death.

... During his trial, Makwan Moloudzadeh reportedly maintained his innocence. ... He is reported to have gone on hunger strike for 10 days to
protest against his ill-treatment in detention. Prior to his trial and conviction, on or around 7 October 2006 Makwan Moloudzadeh was reportedly paraded through the streets of Paveh riding on a donkey, with his head shaved. People in the street shouted abuse and threw things at him. (source: Amnesty International)

As of the "knowledge of the judge", Jafar Kiani was indeed stoned in that basis (see:Stoning WAS CARRIED OUT in Iran)
