Iran: Secret execution of two political prisoners from Arab compatriots

Share

The anti-human clerical regime secretly executed two Sunni political prisoners Ali Che Beshat and Seyyed Khaled Moussavi, both Arab compatriots from Ahvaz. The intelligence agents conveyed the news on these executions to the families of the victims on Thursday, June 12, prohibiting them from holding any memorial ceremonies.

These two political prisoners had been suddenly transferred from Fajr Prison of Dezful to an unknown location. The follow ups by their families and lawyers to find out about their conditions and to visit them proved unfruitful.

Brought under severe tortures to give false confessions, they were condemned to death on the charge of “acting against national security and Moharebeh”.

In a similar case in January 2014, the mullahs’ regime clandestinely executed two other political prisoners Hashem Shabani and Hadi Rashedi, both Arab compatriots from Ramshir.

The Iranian Resistance offers its condolences to the families and friends of these two political prisoners and the people of Khuzestan Province and calls on all, especially the fervent and noble youth of Khuzestan to rise in solidarity and sympathy with the families of the martyrs.

The Iranian Resistance once again calls for urgent international action against political executions in Iran and for the referral of the dossier of violation of human rights by the religious fascism ruling Iran to the United Nations Security Council. Silence and inaction in face of waves of executions that have taken on added dimension since Hassan Rouhani has assumed office, for whatever excuse, bears no fruit but to encourage the anti-human regime to continue and increase its crimes.
