Call to condemn Tehran, condition relations on halting executions

The religious dictatorship ruling Iran continues to issue death sentences and carry out executions. The number of prisoners executed in the month of August alone has reached over 50.

Seyed Jamal Seyed Mousavi, a Sunni Kurdish political prisoner, was executed on August 23 on the bogus charge of moharebe (enmity against God) for having contact with Sunni groups. He had endured nine years behind bars.

The day before Ariya Javeedan was executed in Kerman prison for moharebe and disrupting security.

Alireza Tajiki, arrested at the age of 15, was executed on August 10 after enduring six years behind bars in Diesel Abad prison of Shiraz. A large number of prisoners, arrested under the age of 18 for their alleged crimes, are currently on death row.

Moreover, another so-called court in Iran has sentenced Mohammad Ali Taheri to execution. Introducing himself as the founder of Iranian simontology, Taheri has committed no crime, possessed no weapon, and based on this regime’s own medieval and cruel laws cannot even be charged with the vague charges of moharebe or mofsed fel-arz (corruption on earth).

To justify this execution ruling the Iranian regime has charged him with “providing illegitimate education, distributing visual-audio work, and illegal use of scientific titles.” Whereas all Iranian regime officials are involved in embezzlement and huge theft from public funds.

Many senior officials of the regime, from its President Hassan Rouhani, Expediency Council Secretary Mohsen Rezaie, Expediency Council Member Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf and former interior minister Ali Kordan claim to be doctors. They are all ridiculed by the Iranian people.

These titles are entirely fabricated or simply documents issued by the regime’s own educational institutions based on orders from the Ministry of Intelligence and Revolutionary Guards.

The Iranian Resistance calls on all human rights advocates and relevant United Nations organs to strongly condemn the mullahs’ regime for issuing death sentences, including the recent ruling of Mr. Taheri, and to take urgent action to halt mass executions in Iran. Continuing and expanding political and economic relations with this regime must hinge on halting executions and improving human rights conditions.
