Ali Salari Camp Liberty resident lost his life due to medical blockade of the camp

Published by on February 5, 2015

On Wednesday morning, 4 February, Ali Salari lost his life in Camp Liberty due to lack of free access to medical treatment. He is the 24th resident who was tormented to death by the anti-human medical blockade imposed on camps Ashraf and Liberty. He was suffering from cancer but was denied proper treatment.

Since he was diagnosed with cancer the representatives of Camp Liberty had repeatedly requested his immediate transfer out of Iraq for treatment. As Ali’s health deteriorated, Camp Liberty’s legal advisor once again wrote to UN officials on February 3: “I would like to draw your attention to Mr. Ali Salari’s case who is suffering from Multiple Myeloma. We are requiring expediting his transfer.”

We remind UN and US officials of their responsibilities and repeated and written commitments regarding the security and wellbeing of Camp Liberty residents and call for immediate action to lift this anti-human siege.

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.
