Massive protests in Iran after the presidential election led to the GREEN movement. Dozens of people were killed in the streets.
The death of four young protesters under torture, while in custody, was confirmed by the regime.
The regime arrested hundreds of people. Many were charged with “Moharebeh”, meaning “war against God”.
Arash Rahmanipour , 20 years old, and MohammadReza Alizamani were executed on January 28. No lawyers were present during their trial. The families learned of their sons’ executions on TV!
Five more men were sentenced to death on January 29. No lawyers were present in court.
“Nine more people are to be executed shortly,” Iranian Judiciary Chief’s Assistant stated on Feb 1.
Another group of 14 men and 2 women are being tried. More people in prisons are awaiting trials.
You can save their lives by raising your voice!
Please contact Iranian officials and ask them to STOP EXECUTIONS immediately.
Dear Iranian Authority:
I am writing to ask you to please stop political executions of street protesters in Iran. The recent execution of two young men, Arash Rahmanipour and Mohammadreza Alizamani, without due process and a lawyer present in the court came as a shock to me.
While I support the punishment for people who commit crimes, I strongly believe that every person has the right to legal counsel and defense, as well as a fair trial. Please provide access to a lawyer and fair trial to every single protester arrested in relation to the recent unrests.
The pleas made by some religious leaders for more executions were disheartening and have caused grave concerns about the fairness and independence of the Iranian judicial system. I hope the Islamic Republic of Iran stops the executions and proves that its judiciary system is indeed just and independent and not manipulated by the ongoing political debates and tensions.
I strongly urge the Iranian judiciary to stop the executions. Specifically, I am appealing for a stay of the execution of the 9 individuals who, according to the Chief Judiciary assistant, are to be executed soon.
