Iran, September 14, 2020—Despite a global campaign against the inhuman death sentence issued against Navid Afkari, and despite his own statement that the confessions obtained from him were under torture, the Iranian regime refused to back down from executing this innocent man on Saturday, September 12.

Supporters of the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) supporters gathered in Amsterdam's Dam square on Sunday protesting the execution of Navid Afkari.

In a statement, the Iranian Women Association in Switzerland condemned the execution of a political prisoner Navid Afkari.

Khamenei's criminal judiciary brutally executed Navid Afkari on Saturday morning, at a time when the international community and athletes around the world were calling to stop death penalty.

"The execution of Navid Afkari portrays the fear of the ruling mullahs in Iran against the uprising of young people in the explosive society of Iran. On the other hand, this execution was a complete insult to the international community," the statement reads.

Iranian-American supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) also held a protest rally following the execution of wrestler Navid Afkari by Iran, in front of the White House in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. Afkari said he had been tortured into confessing to crimes he did not commit. 

Moslem Iskandar Filabi, Chairman of the NCRI Sports Commission, called on Iranian athletes to boycott the regime’s teams and refuse to represent the mullahs in international competitions.

Bahram Mavedat, former member of the Iranian national football team, says the international community will not remain silent in this regard and if they do, they will be in line with the mullahs’ genocidal regime. This is a regime in crisis and impasse, he added.

Asghar Adibi, former member of the Iranian national football team, encourages all the Iranian people and athletes to rise against this regime. Go to the home of Navid Afkari’s mother and support her for having such brave sons. Navid will live in millions of Iranians striving for freedom from the mullahs’ rule, he added.
