Mr. Arzhang Davoodi, a political prisoner sentenced to death by the Iranian regime judiciary on a new charge of "enmity against God" has written a letter to the United Nations Secretary General demanding the UN to investigate his death sentence.

Mr. Davoodi, 61, from the city of Abadan and an engineer from University of Texas, was arrested in November 2003.

The judiciary of the mullahs condemned him to 11 years in prison, 74 lashes, and five years deprivation of social rights for founding the “Movement for Freedom of Iranians” and “Confederation of Iranian Students”, writing a “manifest against the Islamic Republic system”, and for insulting the clerical regime’s leaders.

The henchmen of the clerical regime who are infuriated about the firm stances of this political prisoner against the mullahs’ regime, tried him for a third time in absentia in a Revolutionary Court in city of Karaj and sentenced him to death.

Mr. Davoodi wrote: "The sentence in all these court cases that have been lead to this unjust sentence are in contradiction to the United Nations Charter and  also the regime's constitution. Therefore I would like the impartial international jurists review them as an example so that once again be clearly proven that to what extent the words and actions of the ruler's in Tehran contradict each other.
