Release Political Prisoners in Iran sign now

Call for the immediate release of political prisoners in the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI)

By Ramin Parham & Victoria Azad

English text:

Amidst its international, its continuing support of terrorism, its ongoing nuclear adventurism, its involvement in the destabilization of Iraq Afghanistan and Lebanon through proxy groups and its repeated calls for the destruction of a sovreign foreign state, the IRI has not lost sight of what it rightly considers as the most imminent and present danger to its existence: the people of Iran and their increasingly united dissidents.

On september 12, IRI security services have cracked down on Human Rights activists in the cities of Tehran, Karaj, Eslam-Shahr, Sanandaj, and Firooz-Kooh. Among the emprisonned freedom fighters are: Abbas Khorsandi, Meysam Roodaki, Bahram Rasekhifar, Sepideh Pooraghaii (journalist), Mansoor Faraji and Qasem Shirzadian (blogger).

At least some have been transferred to the infamous 209 section at the Evin prison in northern Tehran.

The case is the latest among an ongoing series of arbitrary arrests hitting journalists, bloggers, and other prisoners of conscience charged with undermining national security, regardless of the most basic principles of justice and the presumption of innocence. Deeply concerned, we call upon the European Union and all competent international institutions to increase their pressure on the IRI authorities in Tehran, asking for the immediate release of all political prisoners in Iran.


French text:

Nous venons dapprendre larrestation de six militants des Droits de lHomme en Iran par les autoritйs de la Rйpublique Islamique. Ces derniиres victimes de la violation quotidienne des Droits de lHomme en Iran sont : Abbas Khorsandi, Meysam Roodaki, Bahram Rasekhifar, Sepideh Pooraghaii (journaliste), Mansoor Faraji and Qasem Shirzadian (blogger).

Arrкtйs le 12 septembre dernier dans les villes de Tйhйran, Karaj, Eslam-Shahr, Sanandaj et Firooz-Kooh, et dйtenus depuis lors, leur sort est reprйsentatif de celui de nombreux journalistes, bloggers et autres prisonniers de conscience, mis sous les verrous pour atteinte а la sйcuritй intйrieure , et ce, sans йgard pour les plus йlйmentaires principes de justice ou de prйsomption dinnocence. Cest avec inquiйtude que nous assistons а cette derniиre vague darrestations arbitraires effectuйe par les autoritйs islamiques au pouvoir en Iran. Par cette lettre, nous appelons la communautй europйenne, ainsi que les institutions compйtentes а lйchelle internationale, а mettre tout en uvre pour leur libйration immйdiate et celle de tous les prisonniers politiques dans notre pays.
