On 30th of June a conference was held in Rome, at the Italian parliament, with regards to democracy, human rights violations and the Kurdish question in Iran.

In the conference some Italian  Senators, Deputy and political activists whom were present expressed their grave concerns over the violations of human rights in Iran, particularly in Kurdish regions of the country.

The Islamic regime systematically executes Kurdish political and Human Rights activists with the aim of spreading fear and of terrorizing the society in order to oblige them to accept its Islamic ideological policies. Kurds, Arab and Baloch national minorities also were present at the conference and presented valuable information about the Islamic regime’s policies against the national, religious and linguistic minorities in Iran.

URGENT: Female Kurdish political prisoner Zeinab Jalalian has been moved to the enforcement section of the Islamic Republic’s detention facilities; her execution is deemed imminent.

Source: Kurdish Info

 A woman named Zeynep Jalaliyan, whose whereabouts is unknown, is under the threat of execution. It is stated that Celaliyan, whose case is sent to the Execution Institution, could be executed at any time. Another Kurdish political captive named Hebibulla Gulperipur, who is in Mahabad prison, is also under the threat of execution. It has been found out that Gulperipur, who has been tortured for going on hunger strike, is constantly receiving death threats. In the meantime, although it has been 52 days, the bodies of 5 captives, 4 of whom are from PJAK, who have been executed on 9th May, are not still delivered to their families.

TAKE ACTION: Execution of Zeinab Jalalian Imminent
URGENT: Female Kurdish political prisoner Zeinab Jalalian has been moved to the enforcement section of the Islamic Republic’s detention facilities; her execution is deemed imminent.

Zeinab, 27, is from Maku, a city in the far northwest corner of Iran in province of West Azerbaijan.  She was arrested in May 2008 in Kermanshah and accused of ‘waging war against God’ (Mohareb) and belonging to the PKK (an outlawed political organization).

Her “trial,” in which she was denied legal defense, lasted about 5 minutes, reminiscent of the 1988 mass executions of thousands of political prisoners, for which there is now a demand to convene an international court to try the perpetrators.  Zeinab was sentenced to death in that sham trial and the sentence has been upheld. Originally imprisoned in Kermanshah prison, she was transferred to the detention center of the Ministry of Information in March 2010, and has now been moved to the “enforcement” section of the facility, signaling impending execution.

Here is 27-year old Zeinab Jalalian’s letter to the world, pleading for help:

Dear Human Rights Organisations:

My name is Ms Zeinab Jalalian (زینب جلالیان). I am a 27-year-old Kurdish female political prisoner in prison in Iran. My death sentence was confirmed by the Iranian Supreme Court.

    I am currently ill because of torture and I don’t have any lawyer to defend me. I want to tell you that my trial took only few minutes. The Court told me: “You are an enemy of God. You must be hanged very soon.” That was the sum of my entire court process. I asked the judge to give me permission to say good bye to my mother and family before my execution. He told me to “shut up” and rejected my request.

    Zeinab Jalalian (زینب جلالیان)
    26/11/2009

The Kurdish Federation UK has been protesting the executions of a number of Kurdish political prisoners by the Islamic Republic of Iran since 3 June, 2010. The Federation is now submitting this urgent appeal to the EU to request that the Iranian Prime Minister and his Minister of Justice revoke the unjust death sentences passed on further Kurdish political prisoners, as well as to call for an end to the displacement of Kurdish families from their homes.

PRESS RELEASE: For immediate release

OPEN LETTER TO THE EUROPEAN UNION COMMISSION, LONDON

The Kurdish Federation UK has today protested the unjust executions of Kurdish prisoners by the  Islamic Republic of Iran. The Federation has appealed to the EU to request that the Iranian Prime Minister and his Minister of Justice revoke the unjust death sentences passed on further Kurdish political prisoners, as well as to call for an end to the displacement of Kurdish families from their homes.

The Islamic Republic of Iran’s shocking and appalling record for gross human rights violations, including for the execution of political prisoners, over the past 31 years is well-known to the international community. The Federation believes that Iran’s defiance can only be broken through direct action on the part of western countries through the application of political sanctions. (more…)
