Iraqi forces intensify pressures on Iranians in Camp Liberty in need of medical care

Published by on December 27, 2014

The Iraqi force stationed in the camp near Baghdad International Airport that houses Iranian dissidents have prevented the entry of gasoline for a few vehicle used for transfer of the sick and wounded residents.

This is the third week that the Iraqi forces are not allowing the small amount of gasoline purchased by the residents to enter the camp.

The residents basically use the vehicles to distribute food and to transport

the sick and wounded and those who are unable to walk on gravel-covered walkways of the camp.

The latest measure is doubling the pressures on the resident particularly the sick and wounded in the camp that continues to be subject of logistical and medical siege.

On December 21 and 22, the Iraqi forces did not allow the interpreters to accompany four sick residents going to hospital in Baghdad. Due to long delay caused by Iraqi forces the patients returned from hospital without reaching any results.

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.
