Title: Saman Naseem
Description: Iranian juvenile offender, Saman Naseem, on death row. Saman Naseem was sentenced to death in April 2013 by a criminal court in Mahabad, West Azerbaijan Province, for ?enmity against God? (moharebeh) and ?corruption on earth? (ifsad fil-arz) because of his membership of the Kurdish armed opposition group, Party For Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK), and for taking part in armed activities against the Revolutionary Guards. His death sentence was upheld by the Supreme Court in December 2013. Saman Naseem was allowed no access to his lawyer during early investigations and he has said he was tortured or otherwise ill-treated, including by being hung upside down for a lengthy period of time.
