Call for saving the lives of these prisoners
ILA - Clerical regime of Iran inhumanely intends to hang five political prisoners in Ahwaz. They include three brothers, Abdul-Rahman, Taha and Jamshid Heidari, as well as their cousin Mansour Heidari and another prisoner Amir Osameh.
They were transferred from general ward to solitary confinement of Karoon prison in Ahwaz on Saturday June9.
Death sentence for these prisoners, who were arrested in the protests in Ahwaz in April 2011, was confirmed by The mullahs' Supreme Court in March 2012.
The most hated clerical regime resorts to execution of political prisoners, their elimination or making them suffer to death in order to prevent the spread of protests by Iranian people and to intensify the atmosphere of fear in society especially in the 3th anniversary of the uprising 2009.
On May21, Mansour Radpour, a political prisoner and an activist for the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), after five years in prison, passed away suspiciously in Gohardasht prison while his entire body was bruised.
Two weeks later, Mohammad Mehdi Zalieh, a Kurdish political prisoner, after suffering two decades of imprisonment and torture, passed away in the same prison due to denial of medical treatment.
IRAN LIBERTY ASSOCIATION calls on all international human rights organizations and bodies to take urgent action to save five prisoners facing execution, and urges them to send a fact-finding mission to investigate prisoners' conditions especially political prisoners.
