Free Kurdish Prisoner Behrouz Ala Khani NOW
Petition Background (Preamble):
Behrouz has been questioned for months, but after that time he was charged with involvement in a murder by the prosecution.
Although, according to local sources, in all phases of the interrogation of prisoners, accused those involved in the killing, but the prosecutors and judges concluded to support only one, the one on speculation. Based on the testimony of a friend, because Behrouz was worried and saddened in the night of the murder.
Thus, He was charged with waging war through effective collaboration and participation in the PKK's temper and additional sentenced to death for murder. After protests of his lawyer, the case is submitted to the Supreme Court.
We also demand that the Islamic Republic authorities dismiss all charges brought against him, as they are illegal under the terms of Articles 18 and 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Iran is a signatory state, as well as Article 24 of the Iranian Constitution.
