Iran, Sept. 9,  2018 - The heinous execution of three Kurdish political prisoners, Ramin Hossein Panahi, Zaniar and Loghman Moradi has stirred a wave of global condemnations against the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran.

Amnesty International:

“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 accoutable 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.

Maryam Rajavi, President of the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), condemned the execution of these three Kurdish patriots. Mrs. Rajavi called on the people of Kurdistan and all of Iran to protest this repulsive crime and condemn the mullahs’ regime for their atrocious human rights violations.

I call on the courageous people of #Kurdistan & across #Iran to rise up against the anti-human mullahs’ regime that is hell-bent on stepping up terror, repression, executions, and missile attacks to extinguish the people’s uprising. But it will take that wish to the grave.”
