Practice Relating to Rule 135. Children
The Report on the Practice of Jordan states that special care is provided to children who have been orphaned or separated from their families.
According to the Report on the Practice of Jordan (1998), national legislation provides that the death penalty may not be pronounced on a minor who was under 18 years of age at the time of the offence.
In 2005, in its third periodic report to the Committee on the Rights of the Child, Jordan stated: “No one under the age of 18 may be sentenced to death.”
