SimayAzadi (Iranntv.com) is a national satellite television station famously known as the free voice of the Iranian people. It exposes the Iranian regime’s gross human rights violations, its crimes against humanity as well as its meddling in the affairs of the Middle Eastern countries and export of terrorism.
Simay Azadi (Sima in short) reports what Iran’s official newscasters refuse to report. It also thrives to protect Iran’s rich culture and heritage from the vandalism of backward extremists ruling the country who are ripping the country and its rich civilisation apart.
Simay Azadi represents the feature of Iranian people and hopes and aspirations of Iranian women and youth who are doubly repressed under the clerical rule in Iran.
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.
