Narges Mohammadi, Nasrin Sotoudeh, Golrokh Ibrahimi Irai, Maryam Akbari Monfared, Atena Daemi, Azita Rafizadeh, and Negin Ghadamian, Seven civil activists and political prisoners detained in Evin prison, in a message in response to the execution of “Loghman Moradi”, “Zanyar Moradi” and “Ramin Hussein Panahi”, stated their Condolences.

Three political prisoners were executed in a very obscure legal process and in spite of international protests, in an unprovoked place in Tehran province on Saturday, 17 September, 2018.

It should be mentioned that three political prisoners; Zanyar Moradi, Loghman Moradi and Ramin Hossein Panahi, were executed that caused a lot of reactions by Kurdish and other Iranian people and civil activists.

Contrary to the perceptions, the executions of these prisoners were implemented in an unknown location in Tehran. Amjad Hussein Panahi, brother of Ramin, said that the executed families were threatened to be arrested by the Ministry of Intelligence and they were also told that the body of Ramin Hussein Panahi is not being handed over to the family and the government itself has buried the prisoner’s body in an unknown location.

Abolish death penalty

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.
