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)

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…)

Habibollah Golparipour is a Kurdish political prisoner on death row. On 12 May he went on a hunger strike. According to Rahana internet site, the Kurdish man said to the judge threatening him with speeding up his execution if he did not end his hunger strike.

Habibollah Golparipour, a native of the Kurdish city of Sanandaj, was recently found guilty of Moharebeh by the Revolutionary Court in Mahabad and sentenced to death according to Articles 186 and 190 of the Islamic Penal Code.

On May 12, 2010, Golparipour went on hunger strike in Mahabad prison to protest his death sentence as well as his detention conditions. During a recent meeting, the case judge threatened Golparipour, telling him that his death sentence would be carried out if he did not end his hunger strike. In response to the judge’s threats, the Kurdish activist said, “I know that I will be executed soon, therefore I will end my own life in order to shame you, even after my death.”

Golparipour is reportedly in critical condition. His lawyer Ehsan Mojtavi has objected Golparipour’s death sentence verdict but has yet to receive a response to his appeal.

Press release: For immediate release

Kurdish Federation in the UK (Fed-Bir) strongly condemns the execution of four Kurdish political activists along with Iranian male prisoner in Iran and appeals to the EU and its members to place pressure through political and economical sanction on Iranian Regime to cease the execution of Kurdish Political Prisoners.

The four Kurdish political prisoners – Farzad Kamangar, Ali Heydarian, Farhad Vakili, Shirin Alam-Huloo were hanged on Sunday, 9th May at Evin prison in Tehran. Neither their lawyers nor the families of them were informed of the executions. Their bodies have not been given to their families yet.

Farzad Kamangar was a teacher. According to the letter he wrote, he was repeatedly tortured following his arrest in May 2006. He was whipped, held in a freezing cold room and guards played ‘football’ with his body, surrounding him and pummelling him as he was ’passed ’ between guards. (more…)
