Region: GLOBAL

Petition Background (Preamble):

The Iranian regime is continuing its unjust and unprecedented crime against Kurdish political Activists and ready to yet commit another crime!

Zaniar Moradi and Loghman Moradi, both death row prisoners from Iran’s Kurdish minority, claim they were tortured into “confessing” to the 2009 murder of the son of a senior cleric in Marivan, Kurdistan province. They were sentenced to death in December 2010 after being convicted of “enmity against God” (moharebeh) and “corruption on earth” for the murder. They were also convicted of participating in armed activities with Komala, a Kurdish opposition group, which conducted armed struggle against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

After recent execution of - Habibollah Golparipour and Reza Ismaeili - the regime now punished Zanyar Moradi and Loghman Moradi with death sentences issued in public hanging!

This surge in executions shows that behind words and promises, the Iranian authorities continue to rely on state-sponsored killing, sparking fears that Zaniar Moradi and Loghman Moradi, two Kurdish minority prisoners on death row, could be next,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Middle East and North Africa Deputy Director at Amnesty International, she said October 28, 2013.

Petition:

We the undersigned demand that the international community bring all possible pressure to bear upon the Islamic Republic of Iran to:

1) drop all charges against Loghman and Zanyar Moradi.

2) immediately and unconditionally release Loghman and Zanyar Moradi.

They have been imprisoned, tortured and continue to endure mistreatment.

Zanyar Moradi is in urgent need of medical and operative treatment.

From their arrests to the present day, their treatment at the hands of the Islamic Republic of Iran is illegal ! Under both international law and the Iranian constitution.
