NCRI - About a dozen political prisoners in Gohar Dasht Prison in Karaj urged UN Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, to intervene for the release of imprisoned lawyers and to urge for their sentences be rescinded. The joint letter was signed by Shahrokh Zamani, Rasoul Badaghi, Saleh Kohandel, Misagh Yazdan Nejad, Saeed Massouri, Ali Jabari, Afshin Ossanlou, Reza Sharifi Boukani, Afshin Heyratian, Jafar Eghdami, and Khaled Hardani. In their letter, while reminding the mullahs' crimes in the past 33 years, described the mullahs' regime as "one of the biggest human rights violators in the world." The prisoners elaborated: "The Islamic Republic regime has not stopped at committing all these crimes and have violated most of the international laws as well laws that have been ratified by the regime regarding the attorneys and brazenly have condemned them to long imprisonment and revoking their licenses, solely for providing legal defense to their clients." The prisoners have urged Navi Pilay to "take proper action in any possible means to rescinded the sentences against respected attorneys Mohamad Seyf-Zadeh, Nasrin Sotoudeh, Nasser Zarafshan, Mohammad-Ali Dadkhah, Fatah Soltani, Hootan Kia, Khalil Bahramian, the attorneys  of  Dervishes from Gonabad and other anonymous lawyers who face similar plight."
