Four Sunni prisoners in danger of imminent execution

HRANA News Agency – One of the Ghezel Hesar prison authorities informed four of Sunni prisoners that supposedly their execution verdict will be enforced on September 22.


According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), six of the Sunni prisoners who have been sentenced to death are imprisoned currently in unit 3 of ward 4 in Ghezel Hesar prison.


Sediq Mohammadi the son of Hossein, 27, and Seyyed Hadi Hosseini the son of Moheyeddin, 30, are two of the prisoners sentenced to death. Their dossiers have been sent to the court in Sanandaj for reconsideration because of contraventions found by bureau. Sediq Mohammadi and Seyyed Hadi Hosseini were arrested involved in other story and both of them have mental disorders.


Evidently one of the Ghezel Hesar prison authorities informed Hamed Ahmadi the son of Habibollah, 32, Kamal Molaie the son of Ahmad, 29, Jamshid Dehghani the son of Khodaraham, 28 and Jahangir Dehghani the son of Khodaraham, 27, that their execution verdict will be enforced on September 22 due to the judicial warrant.


One of the sentenced to death prisoners who asked to remain anonymous told HRANA reporter “One of the prison authorities told us if everything will go normally your execution verdict will be enforced on September 22 and it could be postponed to first two weeks of October. He asked us in a friendly way to do whatever possible action we could do from now.”


“Our trial session was held in branch 28 of Tehran revolutionary court by judge Moghayesseh while we are all from Sanandaj. During the trial we were blindfolded and the security agents beaten us several times by electric shocker while we were talking. We had no access to any lawyer during the process and even when a lawyer introduced himself to the court in terms of defending us, the security agents threatened him and he gave up. We were just preaching in the mosques. For a while some CDs were released which contained offensive content on Sunni Madhab followers and we objected this, Then they arrested us because of that and accused us to terror.”


“The terrors we have been accused to, were took place on September 9, 2009 while the date we were been arrested is clear. Jamshid and Jahangir Dehghani who are brothers were arrested on June 17, 2009, Kamal Molaie was arrested on July 14, 2009 and Hamed Mohammadi on July 30, 2009. When the terrors took place we were under arrest in Intelligence office, then howcome we have done the terrors? We were arrested with Bahram Ahmadi, Asghar Rahimi, Behnam Rahimi, Mohammad Zaher Bahmani, Kaivan Zand Karimi and Hoshiar Mohammadi; Six of them were hanged on December 27 of 2012 in Ghezel Hesar prison.


“The ten of us were under arrest in solitary confinement and under the most severe mental and physical tortures. We were in solitary confinements of Sanandaj Intelligence for nine months, six months in Zanjan Intelligence and five months in solitary confinements of intelligence in Evin. No one knew what we are going through then they treated us in any way they liked.”


He mentioned that they have not the right to get in touch with any normal prisoner and anyone who get in touch with them, will be transferred and in trouble.


His last words were “We are in danger of imminent execution and we will be hanged in a month eventually. We ask solidarity and support from all the human rights organizations and the free medias to achieve a fair trial with presence of lawyer and medias for us.”
