Call To Save 3 Political Prisoners About To Be Executed

Call to save three Balouchi political prisoners about to be executed

On Thursday, April 17, in preparation for their execution, clerical regime’s henchmen transferred three Balouchi political prisoners who are condemned to death from solitary confinement of Zahedan’s Intelligence Department to solitary cells in the quarantine ward of Zahedan’s central prison. These prisoners, who are charged with murdering Zabol’s atrocious Public Prosecutor, were deprived of lawyer and any due fair judicial process and were condemned to death in mullahs’ sham courts.

It was on October 26, 2013 that upon orders from Khamenei, regime’s henchmen collectively hanged sixteen Balouchi political prisoners in Zahedan Prison and the state-run media published the pictures of the victims who were cruelly hanging from the cranes. Regime’s public prosecutor in Zahedan blatantly said: “These individuals are being executed in revenge for the martyrdom of border guards.” (Tasnim news agency, affiliated with the Qods Force – October 26, 2013)

The collective and clandestine execution of 15 other Balouchi prisoners on February 5 in Chahbahar’s prison and hanging the body of Ahmad Eissa Zehi, a 23-year-old prisoner who had died of a heart attack before his execution (in October 2013) are among other disclosed crimes of the mullahs against the deprived people of Balouchistan.

Execution of prisoners, especially the political prisoners, has increased since the assumption of office by the deceptive Mullah Rouhani. These atrocities that are committed to foment terror and horror and to prevent large social uprisings and in particular to frighten the deprived people of Sistan & Balouchistan Province have increased the public rage and abhorrence of the religious fascism ruling Iran.

The Iranian Resistance calls on all international and human rights bodies, in particular the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the relevant UN Rapporteurs to take urgent action to prevent the execution of the three Balouchi political prisoner. The silence and inaction on part of the international community in face of the criminal executions in Iran that have surpassed 700 during Rouhani’s office, have emboldened the religious dictatorship ruling Iran in the continuation and escalation of executions, massacre and barbaric and systematic violation of human rights.
