The Iranian Kurdistan struggle
Svenska parlamentsledamöter fördömer avrättningar i Iran
Swedish MPs condemning executions of Kurdish political prisoners Developments in Iran since the June 2009 elections has been and is worrying. The oppression of the population has increased in the Kurdish parts of the country where the state of emergency, and large parts of these regions have been militarized greatly. The Kurdish people have the highest number of death row political prisoners in the country in proportion to their share of the population. According to the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) has 227 Kurdish activists, teachers and journalists detained in Iran since 2005. Currently, 18 Kurdish students, young civil and political activists facing execution.

On May 9, 2010 was executed political prisoners, Farzad Kamangar, Farhad Vakili, Ali Haidarian, Mahdi Islamian and Shirin Alemholi, all sentenced for "mohareb", ie God s enemy. Farzad Kamangar was a Kurdish teacher, journalist and social worker from the town Kamyaran, and the others were political activists; all appeared by human rights associations and NGOs for the promotion of human rights and democracy in the Kurdish region and the rest of Iran.

According to Amnesty International proclaimed the death sentences without the executed given the possibility, through legal counsel in an equitable manner, bringing their claims and to present legal defense against the charges. The same source stated further that none of them were executed convicted after justice court trials (Fair Trials) and that torture, which also appeared from the executed own data / letter, occurred systematically both before and after the trials. In some cases, the main negotiations in judicial proceedings lasted less than ten minutes.

In all of these executions are not United Nations standards in ECOSOC Resolution 1984/50 of the death penalty respected.

We, the undersigned, being guided by the UN General Assembly Resolution 62/149, calling for an immediate moratorium on all death sentences imposed on them Kurdish activists in Iran. Confident that the execution of the death penalty undermines human dignity and violate fundamental human rights, we call on the Islamic Republic of Iran to suspend all death sentences against all Kurdish prisoners of conscience in Iran.

Strengthened by the European Union s condemnation of the killings, we call finally on the UN, the EU and the international community to urge the Islamic Republic of Iran


a) issue an immediate moratorium on all executions,


b) convert all previous death sentences to prison terms,


c) sign the Second Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, aimed at abolishing the death penalty (1966).
