1) Sign and Spread the PETITION @
2) SEND APPEALS as SOON as POSSIBLE, TIME IS RUNNING OUT!
I’m concerned about the fate of Shirko Moarefi a 30 year old member of Iran’s Kurdish minority sentenced to death. In preparation for his pending execution, he's been taken to the quarantine of the Saghez prison, where he has been prison since last November and he has suffered various ill-treatments and abuse. He's also said to be in a bad general condition, suffering from physical and psychological trauma.
Shirko Moarefi has been sentenced to death for what is described as
“crimes against the security of the state” and “enmity against God” .
I’m concerned that these scheduled executions could be a reprisal for a spate of assassinations and attempted assassinations of officials which took place during September 2009, in the northwestern province of Kordestan. With these crimes Shirko Moarefi have nothing to do.
That’s why I respectfully ask you to immediately stop his execution and to commute his death sentence.
I also ask you to consider the opportunity to impose an immediate and comprehensive moratorium on all executions, as a first step towards ending the use of this punishment: the international image of the Islamic Republic of Iran could remarkably take advantage of this choice.
