Two Prisoners on Hunger Strike in Protest Against Medieval Rulings of Mullahs’ Judiciary in Orumiyeh
Messrs Ebrahim Sadeqi Hamedani, 60 years old, and his 22-year-old son, Salar Sadeqi Hamedani, went on hunger strike in protest to inhuman treatment and medieval sentences of the mullahs’ regime against them since September 25, 2019. In its statement of April 23, 2019, the Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) had reported their arrest.
The mullahs’ judiciary under Ebrahim Raisi, the ruthless chief justice, sentenced each of the two political prisoners arrested in March 2019 to a 16-year prison term.
They were accused of “membership in the People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK)” and “propaganda against the regime.” On their 9th day of hunger strike, they demand to be transferred to Tehran.
On April 19, 2019, Mahmoud Alavi, the mullahs’ regime’s Minister of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) said: "Over the past year, 116 teams related to PMOI/MEK have been dealt with."
The Iranian Resistance calls for urgent action by the UN Secretary-General, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and related UN rapporteurs, Amnesty International and all other human rights organizations to free all political prisoners especially these two on hunger strike in Iran. The Iranian Resistance once more reiterates Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance’s call for establishing an international fact-finding mission to inspect the Iranian regime’s prisons and meet with the political prisoners.
