Iran’s political prisoners remember their fallen colleagues

NCRI – A group of Iranian political prisoners organized a commemoration for the Sunni political prisoners executed last week.

On Thursday, August 4, prisoners in Ward 8 of Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison delivered a speech on the brutality of the executioners and the false charges levied against those executed.

They accused the mullahs’ regime of carrying out these executions in secret because of a fear of the national outrage that it would incur.

The protesting prisoners were Ali Moezzi, Amir Amirgholi, Arash Sadeghi, Ahmad Asgari and Behnam Moosivand. They demanded an end to the death penalty before taking a minute of silence to remember those murdered by the regime.

Last Tuesday, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described the mass execution of Sunni prisoners in Gohardasht Prison, carried out on the anniversary of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran, an appalling crime against humanity. The regime is trying in vain to contain the volatile social atmosphere and popular protests by terrorizing the public, she said.

The time has come for the UN Human Rights Council and the UN Security Council to end their silence and bring the record of the Iranian regime’s crimes before the International Criminal Court. Ali Khamenei and other leaders of the regime as well as direct perpetrators of these crimes must be brought to justice, Maryam Rajavi reiterated.
