In a letter to Ms Asma Jahangir, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran, the family of a Kurdish political prisoner called on her to help them for clarification of their son’s situation in prison. In their letter, Ramin Hossein Panahi’s family refer to the torture and mistreatment and lack of any news about the fate of their son and complain that the Iranian regime is prohibiting them hiring a lawyer for him. They fear that he might be executed without due process of law.

According to reports from her family, Nazanin Ratcliff is facing new charges brought up by Iranian Revolutionary Guards who arranged for her arrest in April 2016. Nazanin who is Iranian born British citizen married to Richard Ratcliff, was arrested in the airport near Tehran while returning home from a visit to her family in Iran.

Abolish death penalty in Iran

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
