Mohammad Abdullahi who has been charged on collaboration with Komala party, has been sentenced to execution by branch 1 of Mahabad revolutionary court.
According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency in Iran (HRANA), this political prisoner who was arrested in 2010 in Mahabad, has been tortured severely during his interrogation sessions.
Due to the severity of the torture, his leg and hand were broken. After suffering these brutal injuries, he was further tortured by deliberate (and illegal) medical neglect, as a result of which his leg bone realigned crookedly.
Evidently some of his teeth have been broken in the course of torture and this has affected his digestive system in the past three years.
It is worth noting he is the brother of Mohammad Amin Abdullahi, another political prisoner. After being summoned to court eleven times, of his original sentence of imprisonment was changed in early October 2013 to a death sentenceon charges of "enmity against God" (mohabareh) through membership in Komala party.
Apparently he was deprived of access to lawyer in all of his trial sessions.
One of his fellow prisoners testified: said “Mohammad has not given any confessions of guilt during the course of theinterrogations, and that is why trial was held eleven times. And still, afterall of that, they delivered the news of his death sentence to him verbally in prison.”
WHEREAS: Mohammad Abdullahi is clearly a prisoner of conscience imprisoned solely for membership in a political party banned by the Islamic Republic;
AND WHEREAS: His imprisonment, and especially the death sentence against him is illegal under--and in fact an outrage against--The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other international human rights treaties and covenants to which Iran is a signatory, as well as violating Article 24 of the Iranian Constitution;
AND WHEREAS: The brutal torture and medical neglect inflicted upon Mohammad Abdullahi are illegal under Iran's prison regulations, as well as under Article 38 of the Iranian Constitution as well as legally binding international treaties and covenants;
AND WHEREAS: In late October 2013 the Islamic Republic of Iran resumed executions of Kurdish and other political prisoners after a long hiatus due to international outcry, thus adding further danger of Mr. Abdullahi's actually being hanged;
THEREFORE: We the undersigned DEMAND that the international community bring ALL POSSIBLE PRESSURE to bear upon the Islamic Republic of Iran to IMMEDIATELY and UNCONDTIONALLY released Mohmmad Abdullahi, rescind the illegal death sentence imposed on him and vacate all equally illegal charges against him, and provide him with any medical care needed as a result of mistreatment.
