Judiciary of Iran has switched the place of the defendant and the plaintiff

narges-mohammadiNarges Mohammadi: I believe in the way I pursue and I have no regret about the jobs that I did.
The deputy of the Human Rights’ Advocates, Narges Mohammadi sent a memo from Evin Prison and stressed that she will tolerate the ordeal of prison but she never believes that serving a day in this prison is legal, ethical and humane for her.
The branch 36 of the Appeals Court of Tehran Province confirmed the sentence of Narges Mohammadi to 16 years of imprisonment.
Following the confirmation of her sentence by the Appeals Court, the political prisoner, Narges Mohammadi defended her measures and actions and wrote in a letter:” I don’t regret about my beliefs, thoughts, and deeds and I insist on the realization of human rights.”
This political prisoner, in her letter, asks:” are the social harms, such as addiction, poverty, unemployment and suicide, the product of the human rights’ activists or are they the result of government’s performance? The government has no boundary in observing the people’s privacy. Not only are the individual, civil and political rights of the citizens retained but the government also encroach on them and each protest is responded with imprisonment and detainment.”
The political prisoner, Narges Mohammadi also added in her letter:”Apparently, the Judiciary of Iran has switched the place of the defendant and the plaintiff. The perpetrators of the economic, cultural and social problems are exempted from any interrogations or further inquiries whereas the real victims and critics are sentenced to imprisonment and punishment.”

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.
