Save Bahman(shirko) Maarefi from Execution

Excellency Ban Ki Moon,

The Iranian regime is ready to yet commit another crime!! After recent execution of Ehsan, they are now determined to take Shirkoo’s life away.

Bahman Moaarefi known as Shirko, a 30 year old Kurd activist from Banneh (a city of Kurdistan province) has been recognized as Mohareb (god’s enemy) by the Iranian judicial system! He has been charged with propaganda against the regime and fight against the god which in the Islamic regime of Iran is a crime punishable by death.

He was arrested on November 1st, 2007 and has been in detention at Saghez’s intelligence office. Currently he is prohibited from having visitors in detention.

In preparation for his execution, Shirko Moaarefi was transferred to solitary confinement at Saghez central prison. He is one of the Kurd civil activist who was arrested in Saghez last year and was sentenced to death after being interrogated and severely tortured.

He may be taken for execution unannounced, as his lawyer Khalil Bahramian has confirmed the news of Shirko’s transfer to solitary confinement. Based on the unannounced and expeditious execution of Ehsan Fatahyan, the regime might take the same position and execute Shirko in 1-2 days.

We are asking you to please do not remain silent during these critical days as the Islamic regime will not hesitate taking this young activist’s life!

Thank you in advance for all your hard work.

Best Regards,

We ask you to use your authority and do whatever you can to stop this execution. The Iranian regime is behaving as if it were an occupation force.

Please help save Bahman.
