Iran: PMOI/MEK network condemns recent executions

Reported by PMOI/MEK

 

Iran, Sept. 10, 2018 - Resistance unit members associated with Iran’s opposition, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), are continuing to celebrate the 53rd founding anniversary of their movement. This network is also seen condemning Saturday’s execution of three Kurdish political prisoners, Ramin Hossein Panahi, Loghman and Zaniyar Moradi in Rajaie Shahr (Gohardasht) Prison.

 

 

Members of a resistance unit in Kermanshah, western Iran, recorded a message just outside a Revolutionary Guards base and condemned the executions. They also pledged to commemorate their memories by continuing their struggle against the mullahs’ regime.

 

 

Members of a resistance unit from Rasht, northern Iran, held a poster of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President of the Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and sent a message on this anniversary.

“Long live (Iranian Resistance leader) Massoud Rajavi, Long live Maryam Rajavi”

These resistance unit members also held a Mojahedin symbol and cited a recent message delivered by Mr. Rajavi.

 

The execution of three Kurdish activists has also resulted in worldwide condemnations.

“The trials of all three men were grossly unfair. All were denied access to their lawyers and families after their arrest, and all said they were tortured into making ‘confessions.’ In sentencing them to death despite these massive failings in due process, the Iranian authorities have once again demonstrated their brazen disregard for the right to life.”

Agnes Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on Extra-Judicial Executions, also condemned this atrocious crime against humanity.

“No words of condemnation will be strong enough. #RaminHosseinPanahi execution amounts to an arbitrary killing by the State of #Iran. Given the identity of the victim, this is also a political killing. Despicable.”

Ahmed Shaheed, former U.N. Special Rapporteur on human rights in Iran, also voiced his condemnation in this regard.

“Condemn the politically motivated executions that took place in Iran today. The regime in Iran must be held accountable for its arbitrary executions! @AgnesCallamard @JavaidRehman”

Dr. Walid Phares, foreign affairs advisor to U.S. President Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, condemned this ruthless act by Tehran’s mullahs.

“Three #KurdishIranians political prisoners, #RaminHosseinPanahi, #LoghmanMoradi & #ZanyarMoradi were executed this morning at #RajaiShahr Prison in #Iran. Their execution is a war crime. The #IranRegime will be held accountable by the international community.”

Despite numerous international calls, the Iranian regime went forward with these executions on Saturday, September 8th, sending Ramin Hossein Panahi, 24, Zaniar Moradi, 30, and Loghman Moradi, 32, to the gallows in Gohardasht (Rajaie Shahr) Prison of Karaj, west of Tehran. Zaniar and Loghman had spent more than nine years, and Ramin fourteen months in jail and under extremely harsh conditions.
