Your Excellency, Honorable Ban Ki Moon,
The Iranian regime is continuing its unjust and unprecedented crime against Kurdish political Activists and ready to yet commit another crime!! After recent execution of Ehsan Fattahian, the regime now punished Zeynab Jalalian with death sentence and determined to take her life away.
I am writing to you today because I am extremely concerned about the current situation of Ms Zeinab Jalalian (زینب جلالیان), a 27 years old Kurdish political prisoner who was sentenced to death on November 26, 2009.
Her death sentence was confirmed by Iranian Supreme Court per a brief note sent by her on November 26, 2009.
She was arrested in the city of Kermanshah in Iran by Iranian security forces and transferred to Sepah Pasdaran’s (Guardians of the Revolution) intelligence office. Revolution court in Kermanshah city conducted a brief trial without due diligence and proper legal representation, lasting only a few minutes. Based on her membership of a Kurdistan political party she was accused of Fighting God and was given the death penalty.
She is currently ill due to prison conditions and torture. She did not have any lawyer to defend her. Court told her that: “You are a God's enemy and you have to be hanged very soon” That was the only communication took place at her court hearing. She asked the judge to give her a permission to say good bye to her mother and family before her execution. The judge told her to "shut up" and rejected her last plea. Based on the unannounced and expeditious execution of Ehsan Fatahyan, the regime might take the same position and execute Ms Zeinab Jalalian (زینب جلالیان) without further notice.
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.
Please help save Zeinab.
