United Nations urged to save the lives of Ali Younesi, Amir Hossein Moradi
Reacting to political prisoner Ali Younesi contracting Coronavirus, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said that the conduct of the mullahs’ regime vis-à-vis these prisoners, despite all previous warnings and positions taken by various international agencies and organizations is a manifest case of crime against humanity. Apparently, under internal and international pressure over the arrest of Amir Hossein Moradi and Ali Younesi, two elite students at Tehran’s Sharif University of Technology, the mullahs’ regime is intent on murdering them with Coronavirus. The regime is using the Coronavirus as a replacement for the execution of prisoners, especially political prisoners.
Mrs. Rajavi urged the United Nations Secretary-General, the Human Rights Council and the High Commissioner on Human Rights as well as the relevant UN rapporteurs and other human rights organizations to intervene immediately to save the lives of Messrs. Younesi and Moradi and to take urgent action to secure their release.
So far, many parliamentarians as well as personalities, organizations, and associations advocating human rights, including Nobel Laureates, a group of European Parliament members, the International Committee in Search of Justice (which enjoys the support of 4,000 lawmakers in Europe and the United States), Amnesty International, lawmakers and Parliamentary committees in the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, Canada, Belgium, Romania, Ireland, and other countries, as well as the Committee of French mayors and many Middle East personalities have condemned the arrest of Messrs. Younesi and Moradi and have demanded their release.
The mullahs are deliberately seeking to eliminate political prisoners including Amir Hossein Moradi and Ali Younesi by the #Coronavirus which serves them as a replacement for executions. Otherwise, they could have adopted preventive measures against the deadly virus. #Iran
