Reyhaneh-Haj-Ibrahim-DabbaghReyhaneh Haj Ibrahim Dabbagh, political prisoner, who has recently entered her 7th year in prison, is still deprived of proper medical treatment and furlough.

According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), Reyhaneh Haj Ibrahim Dabbagh, political prisoner of women’s ward in Evin prison is suffering from leg pain and colitis, and after 6 years in prison is still being deprived of furlough.

Ms. Dabbagh was sent to Modares hospital in Tehran, in Saadat Abad municipal territory and had few tests.

Need to be mentioned that last year the prosecutor issued the release on 900 million Tomans bail order, but because of not being able to provide this amount she could not go on furlough.

Rayhaneh was arrested in 2009 because of taking part in a demonstration in Tehran and was sentenced to death in branch number 15 by judge Salavati. This sentence was reduced to 15 years in court of appeal.

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.
