Zeynab Jalalian: “Together against the execution”

Zeynab Jalalian: “Together against the execution”

Published by on July 16, 2018

Zeynab Jalalian, Kurdish political prisoner in Iran, in an open letter, has called for spreading protests with the aim of abolishing the death sentence in Iran.
Zeynab Jalalian had been sentenced to death but her sentence was reduced to life time imprisonment after 4 years.
She has expressed her concern about the death sentence of political prisoners, including Ramin Hossein Panahi, Zaniar Moradi, Loghman Moradi, Hedayat Abdullahpour, and Kamal Hassan Ramadhan, in this letter.
Zeynab Jalalian in part of her letter has written: “Dear Iranian people and human rights organizations, as a political prisoner, whom had been in the row of execution for many years, I ask you, from behind the prison bars of these oppressors, to stand up against the death penalty in one front and not allow the Islamic Republic causes grief of the parents of these political prisoners convicted to death, just because of its inhumane interests.”

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.
