Makwan Moloudzadeh is executed
The news has just reached us. Makwan was executed last night (local time) in Dizel Abad Prison in the city of Kermanshah. Makwan’s family have just collected his body and are on their way to the city of Paveh.
Around 200 cars are following in procession the car carrying the body
of a youngster murdered in cold blood by a bunch of criminal thugs.
This crime must be recorded in history. Not only that – the criminals in power in Iran must
be indicted through international courts. Makwan had not committed any
crime. He was executed for a sexual relation with a class mate when
they were both 13. He was executed for homosexuality.
International Committee Against Executions, along with several human
rights organisations, including Amnesty International, launched a
campaign to save Makwan. As a result of these actions, the head of the
judiciary, Shahroudi, was forced to call for a review of the case,
saying that the death sentence was incorrect.
According to our information, the local authorities in Paveh and Kermanshah were
insistent that the death sentence should be carried out. One of the
officials is reported to have said “Paveh’s youths have become too
cheeky; we should execute one so that it may be a lesson to others”.
Islamic regime executed young Makwan because it wanted to create a
climate of fear. The prison authorities even said to the family of
Makwan that they had been good enough not to execute him publicly.
the announcement of the news of Makwan’s execution at the hands of
Islamic hangmen, a wave of sympathy and solidarity has swept the city.
The International Committee Against Executions strongly condemns this savage and despicable crime by the Islamic Republic, and calls on the people of Paveh and Kermanshah to extend their sympathies and support to Makwan’s family.
Our Committee will pursue this crime through international bodies so that the murderers may be prosecuted.
