Hi…

My name is Zeyneb Celalyan. I am 27 year old and have been held in Kermanshah’s prison as a political prisoner. I was sentenced to death by the Iranian High Revolutionary Court.

Due to the intensive and unbearable torture I have been subjected to, psychologically and physically I am at a critical condition. My illness in serious and I am deprived of the right of having or requesting to have a lawyer.

The whole trial of mine took only few minutes. The judge accused me of being the “enemy of God” and said that I shall be executed soon.

I appealed to the Judge to allow me to speak to my family for the last time. But in response he told me, “shut up”.
