German Human rights commissioner condemns Iran regime flogging of students

Published by on June 1, 2016

Barbel-KofflerGermany’s human right commissioner Barbel Koffler condemned the flogging sentence of students in the city of Qazvin on Monday as most inhuman and brutal action by Iran’s judiciary.
Iran’s judiciary ordered 95 lashes for each of the 35 young male and female students in Qazvin on May 25th after they were arrested during a graduation party. The students were immediately sent to the court on the same day and ruling of 99 lashes each. The sentences were carried out on the same day by the brutal criminal moral police.
She said speed in which the judiciary had issued and carried out this heinous sentence to 35 young innocent students raise a serious doubt in the legitimacy of the ruling.
Mullah Sadeghi Niaraki, the brutal prosecuting attorney in Qazvin said “this is the authority of the Islamic Republic judiciary. In less than 24 hours, the investigation, interrogation, court hearing, issuing and carrying out the sentence were all done, so it would be a lesson to other offenders.”

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.
