Letter to British MP Catherine McKinnell on recent DP in Iran

To: MCKINNELL, Catherine
Subject: Murderring 3 young men in Iran by the Rigime of Iran

Dear Katherine

Urgent

Three November Protesters In Iran Sentenced To Death that could be carried out without proper Appeal Hearing

A Revolutionary Court in Tehran has sentenced three people arrested in the heat of anti-government protests last November to death. They were sentenced behind closed doors by the notorious ultraconservative judge, Abolqassem Salavati. And now has been upheld by higher revolutionary judicial system to carried out.

An Iranian monitoring groups, the Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) has named the three as Amir Hossein Moradi, Mohammad Rajabi, and Saeed Tamjidi.

These three young person along with millions other Iranians protested because of an overnight three-fold increase in gasoline prices in November, 2019, triggered a wave of protests that soon turned into anti-Islamic Republic unrest in 29 out of 31 provinces of Iran including over 100 major cities.

On top of the death penalty, Salavati sentenced Moradi to an extra fifteen years in prison and 74 lashes for the charge of “cooperation in aggravated armed robbery” and one-year imprisonment for “crossing the border unlawfully.”

Salavati sentenced the other two, Rajabi and Tamjidi, each to ten years jail and 74 lashes for “cooperation in aggravated armed robbery” and one-year imprisonment for “crossing the border unlawfully.”

HRANA says that the prisoners were simply protesters and it appears they were forced to confess to crimes.

Documents collected by HRANA show that 26-yer-old Amir Hossein Moradi was working as a cell phone, computer, and software salesperson in Tehran when he was arrested. “On November 19, Amir Hossein Moradi was identified and arrested by security services (through observing the CCTV footage). Mr. Moradi was in solitary confinement in ward 240 of Evin Prison for a month. The security agents beat him during the interrogation,” HRANA has divulged.

Citing a source close to Moradi’s family, HRANA reported that the 26-year-old cellphone vendor told his family that he was attacked by a stun gun, threatened to spend more time in solitary confinement, and was promised to receive medical treatment to pressure him to deliver a forced confession.

Twenty-six-year-old Rajabi, and 28-year-old undergraduate student in electrical engineering, Tamjidi, were also battered and forced to confess to a series of crimes dictated by their interrogators.
Based on Judge Salavati’s verdict, the three will have another trial on March 3, 2019, but the trio’s attorneys say that their sentences are final, and now the sentences of death has been uphold by the higher revolutionary court.

Dear Katherine, I ask you please make the strongest protestation on my behave to British Government asking the necessary actions to be taken to stop this unlawful killing of these three innocent young men.

I look forward to hearing from you

Respectfully yours,

MP Catherine McKinnel letter to Mohammad Farsi

Dear Dr Farsi,

Thank you for your e-mail.

I will write to the Foreign Secretary to ask him to make representations in the case of the three young protestors who have been sentenced to death in Iran. My long-held view is that the death penalty is immoral in all circumstances and I strongly support efforts to abolish it globally.

I will of course contact you as soon as I have received any further information but please note that due to the outbreak of Covid-19 it is taking longer than usual to receive replies from government departments and other organisations.

Yours sincerely

Catherine
