The Prison of Greater Tehran (Fashafooyeh)
Abdul Rauf Pahang, a 30-year-old prisoner in Saravan Prison, who was infected with TB, died on the eve of Nowruz and the Iranian New Year on Tuesday morning, March 14, because the torturers denied him medical treatment. Abdul Rauf's cellmates had repeatedly warned the prison guards about the condition of the prisoner and demanded his transfer to the hospital, but did not receive any response. Recently, tuberculosis has spread in Saravan Prison and some other prisoners have been infected with the disease.
Iranian Resistance calls for saving the life of the political prisoner, Soheil Arabi, who has been on hunger strike for 48 days. It also askes all international authorities, especially the High Commissioner for Human Rights and rapporteurs on arbitrary arrests, torture and the right to life, to take immediate and effective action to save the life of this political prisoner who is in a very grave situation.
On the International Women's Day, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said women were at the center of the nationwide uprising in January 2018, which shook the regime of the mullahs to the core. She added the 39-year history of this regime is a history of suppression of Iranian women, and year after year, misogynist laws have been increased and repressive measures against women have been intensified. The smallest demands of women in this regime cannot be implemented, because the echo of each of these demands in the ear of the mullahs is the same as overthrowing the regime.
Iran Uprising - 100
Murder under torture is a crime against humanity; inaction against it encourages the regime to continue the crime
Iranian regime’s henchmen Killed Ghobad Azami, under torture, he was from Javanroud (Kermanshah province), and was arrested on February 28th. The mullahs’ intelligence service shockingly informed his family two days after his arrest, on March 2, that he had committed suicide with poison. Such absurd and blatant claims do not deceive anyone, and only inflames the anger and hatred of the Iranian people towards the regime and increases their will to overthrow this regime.
Simultaneous with arrival of the Iranian regime’s Minister of Justice, Alireza Avaei, in Switzerland on February 26, Marc Bonnant, a distinguished Swiss lawyer, submitted a complaint on behalf of the NCRI to the Swiss General Prosecutor, Michael Lauber, calling for prosecution of Avaei for crimes against humanity. Avaei was one of the officials involved in Massacre of political prisoners in 1988.
The Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights and women's rights advocates to take immediate and effective action to save the lives of two jailed hunger striking prisoners, Mrs. Golrokh Iraee and Mr. Sohail Arabi, who are at risk.
