The world should be enraged!
The Islamic Republic of Iran intends to execute a young man who 6 years ago was imprisoned for having had a sexual relationship with his lover. The execution is to be carried out soon.
Mosleh Zamani was only 17 when he was arrested for having had sex with his girl friend. Both he and his girl firend were arrested by police and later sentenced to death by a court in Sanandaj. This sentence has been approved by the Supreme court of Islamic Republic.
In 2007 the wave of protest from the people of Sanandaj and the International Human rights organisations managed to halt the execution. However, the Kurdestan authorities have moved Mosleh to Dizel Abad Prison in Kemanshah, in order to be able to execute him away from the public protest.
Mosleh became paralysed once the news was broken to him when they took him to solitary confinement where those on death row are kept before being killed. The state of Kermanshah has unashamedly announced its intention to execute him and some others before Friday 18th December and use him as a deterrent to others.
The world should not remain silent when such gross abuse of human rights occur. Let us not forget that Mosleh was imprisoned in the first place for being in a sexual relationship with his girl friend. This barbaric act of The Islamic Republic should enrage every one.
To pressure the Islamic Republic to abandon these barbaric acts, it is the duty of each one of us to raise our voices and join forces to prevent Mosleh’s prosecution.
If it is true that the Lion in us(Iranians) has awakened, then we should deafen the authorities by our screams. Please, join us in our struggle for humanity. Sanction these criminal acts. Let the state of Kermanshah know how strongly you oppose their action. Write to the authorities In Tehran, in Kermanshah and let them know what you think about their actions. Let your government representatives know that you demand condemnation of these acts. And most importantly act quickly. Time is running out.
Please inform us of your actions.
