Residents of Saqez chant anti-regime slogan in protests against acid attacks
Along with other cities in the country, on Saturday, October 25, people of Saqez staged a protest gathering against the acid attacks on women and girls of our homeland by the criminal gangs affiliated with the revolutionary guards. This gathering was held at 1:30 pm in the Saheli Street of this city, near the governor’s building.
While expressing revulsion for the anti-human actions by the criminal mullahs ruling Iran, I voice my sympathy with the women of my homeland who are attacked by Khomeini's savage forces.
The recent tragic crime by mullahs' regime elements in splashing acid on my sisters under the mullah-fabricated pretext of mal-veiling is an unheard of atrocity that not many dictators in the world have resorted to.
Press Release by International Committee In Search of Justice - 25 Oct 2014
Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, a university student and decorator, was hanged at dawn on Saturday in a prison outside of Tehran for the murder of a former intelligence official, Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, who had tried to rape her in 2007. The UN and many international bodies including Amnesty International had said her confession was obtained under intense pressure and threats from Iranian prosecutors. Amnesty International said she was convicted after a deeply flawed investigation. Ahmed Shaheed, the UN’s human rights rapporteur on Iran, has said that she had acted in self-defence.
NCRI - On Friday night, October 24, the criminal gangs affiliated with the clerical regime attacked a 24-year-old woman and in an anti-human atrocity splashed acid on her face. This crime was committed at 8:10 pm at the 3-way intersection of Malek Shahr of Esfahan by three criminals riding motorcycles who had their faces covered. One of the eyewitnesses identified one of the criminals as a member of the IRGC Basij force in that district.
According to further information received, one of the cases of acid attacks in Tehran took place on Tuesday night (October 21) in the street across from the Tohid Metro where criminals riding motorcycles splashed acid on the face of a middle-aged woman who was inside a vehicle. Over half of this woman’s face was burnt by acid.
NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance described the hanging of Reyhaneh Jabbari, a 26- years old university student and a decorator as another sign of savagery and misogyny of the clerical regime.
Mrs. Rajavi said: The savage hanging of Reyhaneh Jabbari is the other side of the coin of the mullahs' anti-human crime of acid attacks against innocent Iranian women and girls.
Friends of a Free Iran group in the European Parliamnet says the execution of Reyhaneh Jabbari shows that ‘moderation’ with the new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is nothing but a myth.
Press release – Friends of a Free Iran –25 Oct 2014 - Brussels:
We are totally outraged of the news of execution of Ms Reyhaneh Jabbari, Iranian 26-year-old decorator who was kept in jail in the past 7 years for having defended herself against a sexual aggression by an intelligence officer of the Iranian regime.
NCRI - More than a dozen Iranian political prisoners in Gohardasht prison in the city of Karaj go on hunger strike on Saturday to express solidarity with women and girls who have been victims of acid attacks carried out by gangs affiliated to the Iranian regime.
The political prisoners said in a statement published on Friday: “For years, the heroic Iranian women have been under brazen and brutal suppression imposed by the regime. Facing lack of social independence, imposition of obligatory veil, and being deprived of education in many fields and hundreds of other privileges based on the constitution, are only small part of the violence being carried out against the Iranian women.”
Reyhaneh Jabbari, the Iranian woman who was hanged today by the Iranian regime’s henchman after 7 years imprisonment had released her will in a voice message.
In a heart-rending message to her family in April - beginning with her mother Sholeh - 26-year-old Reyhaneh Jabbari tells how she trusted the law, but has faced death for the crime of defending herself against an agent of Iranian regime’s intelligence who tried to abuse her.
