Trumped Up Charges

Iran Execute Boy, originally uploaded by ddbsweasel.

Iran rushed an execution of a boy. He was 20 years old, but 13 when he was charged with, and jailed for, rape. His confession had been coerced. His accusers had changed their minds. The authorities had rescinded the decision. But the local authorities executed him anyway.

Discredited international bodies, such as Amnesty International, tried to intervene. It is possible that Amnesty has committed too much of its resources, protecting international terrorist wannabes, to be of much help to the boy.
