[Editorial] Ending the death penalty for juveniles

Last week, Amnesty International published a distressing report on the death penalty for juvenile offenders in Iran. 73 such executions have been recorded in 2005–15, mostly for murder, rape, drug-related offences, and “enmity against God”, a vaguely defined offence related to national security. Most individuals have spent, on average, 7 years on death row, after often superficial trials that relied on “confessions” extracted through threats, torture, and abuse. Many died without being informed of the right to seek retrial.
