Maryam Rajavi: With grave concern over the situation in Shaiban and Sepidar prisons of Ahvaz, I urge an international fact-finding mission be dispatched to visit these two prisons, and inquire about the number of those killed and wounded, and conditions of the sick.

Maryam Rajavi: I urge the UN High Commissioner for #HumanRights and the UN Special Rapporteur for the human rights situation in Iran to compel the regime to announce the whereabouts and conditions of the detainees and wounded prisoners who have disappeared.

Maryam Rajavi: I call on the prisoners’ families, relatives and friends to follow up on the conditions of the captives and do not relent until they are unconditionally released. The clerical regime must free all of them and this is the only way to save them from Coronavirus.
