A 14-year-old boy is sentenced to have his eyes removed.
Vahid is 14 years old. He was working as a porter in a fruit
market. While playing with his friend, a porter at the same
market, Vahid poured a glass of acid into the face of his
friend. Vahid didn't know that it was acid, but his friend lost
his eyes. Now the court has sentenced Vahid to have his eyes
removed by surgery. He is awaiting his fate.
Please put pressure on the Islamic regime to stop this sentence
taking place. Vahid is a child and due to poverty his family
cannot bribe the corrupt judiciary system. So please help to
save his eyes.
