Atena Daemi In The 15th Month Of Detention In Notorious Evin Prison

Published by on January 13, 2016

Daemi-Atena-2Atena Daemi’s case is still pending and despite the referral to branch number 36 of the appeal court, due to insufficiency of judges, this case has not been processed yet, reported by Hrana.

Despite the request for furlough, her family has been told that due to the case condition she could not be sent to furlough. The request for medical furlough has also been rejected.

Atena Daemi, 27, was arrested on 21st October 2014 and was held for 57 days in solitary confinement under investigation. She was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment because of her peaceful civil activities and on charges of propaganda against the regime, gathering and collusion against national security, insulting the leader, insulting the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran and concealing evidences of the crime.

The decision has been sent to Branch 36 of the Appeals Court to appeal but by the time of this report still no decision has been announced.

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.
