Call for the formation of an international fact-finding mission
The Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights organizations especially the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to life and arbitrary detentions, and the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran to act urgently to address the situation of political prisoner Mr. Ali Moezzi, who is at risk of physical elimination, and it demands the formation of an international fact-finding mission to investigate the clerical regime's medieval prisons and the deteriorating conditions of prisoners, especially political prisoners.
From April 14 to 16, concurrent with the visit of the EU High Representative to Iran, the antihuman clerical regime sent 10 prisoners to the gallows. Three were executed in Rasht central prison on April 16 while the other seven, including two women, were collectively hanged in Birjand central prison on April 14. Prior, on the verge of the visit by the EU representative and the Italian Prime Minister, 14 prisoners had been executed.
Call for swift release of Ms. Azam Madadzadeh and Mr. Karim Kohandel
The Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights organizations and in particular the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Rapporteur for Arbitrary Detention, and the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran to condemn the arrest of Ms. Azam Madadzadeh, a mother of two children, and her husband Mr. Karim Kohandel. They are family members of Camp Liberty residents and martyrs of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The Iranian Resistance has called for immediate action to secure their release.
On the morning of Wednesday, April 13, concurrent with a visit by Italy’s Prime Minister and on the eve of a visit by the EU High Representative to Tehran, the antihuman clerical regime collectively hanged eight prisoners in Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison in Karaj. Counting one execution in Tabriz central prison on April 11 and five other executions on April 9, the number of executions in just the last five days reached 14. Moreover, in an Isfahan prison, five prisoners were transferred to solitary confinement on April 11 in preparation for their execution.
The criminal hanging of Rashid Kouhi, a 28-year-old student, on the pretext of smuggling narcotics demonstrated the brutality of the religious fascism ruling Iran in a most appalling manner. The Iranian Resistance once again urges all international human rights bodies to unequivocally condemn this antihuman crime.
Iranian Resistance welcomes postponement of Rouhani’s visit to Austria, calls for complete cancelation of the trip by the Austrian Government
The Iranian Resistance welcomes the postponement of the visit of Hassan Rouhani, the President of the clerical regime, to Austria and calls upon the President, Chancellor, and the Government of Austria to permanently cancel this trip. This trip only feeds the Iranian regime’s torture and execution at home and export of terrorism and belligerence in the region and will embolden it to further brazenly violate all the universal principals of human rights and democracy.
He was under 18 at the time of arrest
The Iranian Resistance calls for urgent action to save the life of Himan Uraminejad, a 21-year-old Kurdish prisoner, who at the time of the alleged crime was under 18 and is now on death row, and demands effective action by international human rights authorities to stop this brutal sentence.
