NCRI - A few hours ago (Saturday, May 31), political prisoner Mr. Gholamreza Khosravi was transferred to Gohardasht Prison’s solitary confinement in preparation for his execution. Gholamreza Khossravi who so far has spent 12 years of his life in mullahs’ regime dungeons was transferred from Ward 350 of Evin Prison to the prison’s section for implementation of sentences in the morning of May 28. Momeni, one of the head henchmen of Evin Prison, had threatened him for his effective role in the resistance of prisoners in Ward 350. He was subsequently sent to quarantine in Gohardasht Prison with his hands and feet enchained.

In the savage raid of April 17 on Ward 350 of Evin Prison, henchmen battered and injured Mr. Khossravi with special spite and brutality and he was transferred to the solitary confinement of Ward 240 with bloodied and bruised body while his head and face were wounded and his right ear torn. Despite his dire condition, he staged a hunger strike along with the other prisoners that continued for 23 days until their return to Ward 350. The Evin henchmen deprived him of the least medical treatment despite his critical condition. During the raid on Ward 350, Nader Seraj, one of the head henchmen of the Intelligence Ministry with pseudonym Alavi, threatened Mr. Khossravi that he would soon carry out Khossravi’s death sentence. He had also threatened Khossravi’s relatives that if they met with foreign delegations, they would be arrested and face heavy sentences.

The Iranian Resistance warns of the imminent execution of this political prisoner and calls on the international community, especially the European Union, the U.S. government, the UN Secretary-General, the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the pertinent UN Rapporteurs, all organizations and societies defending human rights, and labor rights defenders to resort to urgent and effective action to stop this criminal sentence from being carried out.

Background: Mr. Gholamreza Khossravi, 49, from the city of Abadan, father of a child and a welder, was condemned to death on the mullahs’ fabricated charge of “Moharebeh” (enmity towards God) on April 21, 2012. He is one of the political prisoners of the 1980s who was imprisoned for five years in Kazeroun prison at the age of 16 for supporting the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). He was once again arrested in 2007 and while deprived of the least fair legal process was condemned to six years in prison. In 2010, while just two years remained of his sentence, the mullahs’ judicial system retried him for his monetary contribution to the PMOI and condemned him to death on the charge of ‘Moharebeh’. The clerical regime has time and again tortured him to extract forced TV confessions. He, who has till now spent eight years in prison, has spent over 40 months of his time in solitary confinement and in very difficult conditions.
