The NCRI Women’s Committee calls on the international community for the cancellation of the cruel sentence against Ms. Mohammadi and demands her immediate release
The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran strongly condemns the sentence by the Judiciary of ruling the mullahs’ misogynist regime against Ms. Narges Mohammadi. Ms. Mohammadi’s cruel sentence of 10 years in prison merely indicates the weakness, vacillation and fear of the clerical regime that has made it strongly vulnerable against the slightest opposition or protest.
The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran strongly decries the international community’s silence against the wave of executions, suppression, arbitrary arrests and medieval sentences by the clerical regime and calls on international human rights organizations, women’s rights defenders and particularly the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, Working Group on Arbitrary Detentions, the UN Special Rapporteur on violence against Women and other relevant bodies to take immediate and effective measures to abolish the ruling by the mullahs’ Judiciary against Ms. Mohammadi and gain her immediate and unconditional release.
