Despite repetitive protests by the people of this district and the verdict of regime’s own Administrative Justice Court that forbade the construction of this center, the land between residential complexes was usurped by the authorities and this spying center was established.

The construction of this center was supported by the mayor of District 5 of Tehran who, like most other mayors of Tehran districts, is a commander and element of suppressive bodies and affiliated with Tehran’s Mayor, IRGC Brigadier General Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf.

Thursday 2 July, following the gathering of people in front of this building, the Basij hirelings began insulting, battering and injuring the people. One of the residents was transferred to hospital for injuries.

In another development on Sunday, July 5, a number of shop owners who sell electric products in Amjad shopping center in Jomhouri Street clashed with the security forces who intended to disturb the shop owners on the pretext of failing to observe fasting. The security forces wanting to seal up all of the shops were forced to leave the place in fear of the rage showed by the shopkeepers.

The youth in Sadra Township, Olympic Village, Ferdos Boulevard, and a number of other places west of Tehran brought down signs and placards put up by Basij hirelings that called on people to voluntarily hand over their satellite dishes.

The Basij forces were later seen collecting the banners that were torn up by the people in this area.

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.
