Vsebina izjave v celoti: 

Statement by the High Representative, Catherine Ashton on the execution of juvenile offenders in Iran 

Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and  Vice-President of the Commission, made today the following statement: 

"I deplore the public execution of four young men in Bandar Abbas, Iran, last week. At least two of the men were under 18 at the time of their alleged offences. This stands in clear contravention to Iran's international obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The EU has already expressed its concern over the alarming rate of executions in Iran this year and condemns the practice of carrying them out in public or by suspension hanging. I reiterate the EU's call on Iran to declare a moratorium on the death penalty in line with the growing global trend towards abolition of this punishment."
