Iran: reverse

In the prison of Bojnord, Khorasan province, is August 20 a man hanged.
The man, Ali was sentenced to death for murder.

August 14, the International Alliance in Support of Workers in Iran (IASWI) has started an international action to call Iranian government to release the prisoners and to cease all repression of labour activists.
In recent weeks are two women labouractivists Sousan Razani and Shiva Kheirabadi sentenced to lashing and prison.
The verdict states that Sousan Razani is sentenced to 70 lashes and 9 months in prison, which is a much harsher punishment than the original report of 15 lashes.
Abdullah Khani, Seyed Qaleb Hosseini, and Khaled Hosseini are sentenced to lashing and prison, and Afshin Shams is arrested.
Kurdish teacher and labouractivist Farzad Kamangar is sentenced to death and Mansour Osanloo, president of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company is detained since July 2007.
Here is an online-letter which can be mailed to Iranian government.

There is great concern is about the health and physical condition of Emadeddin Baghi, who two weeks ago once again has been transferred to section 209 of Evin prison.
Although his case is completed and has been turned over to the court, interrogations did not stop.
He has been transferred from ward 350 to ward 209, blindfolded and handcuffed, against all legal laws.He shares a cell with another prisoner with access to only one blanket.
Since he refuses to wear a blindfold while it is against constitutional and judicial laws confirmed by the Guardian Council, in an effort to reduce the need to use the bathroom he did eat only twice.
Last week he fell unconscious after interrogation and doctors in Section 209 of Evin prison diagnosed Mr. Baghi’s condition as critical and requiring urgent care.
Tuesday judicial spokesman Ali Jamshidi said that Baghi has another pending case in the court, and he has been transferred to Section 209 to be investigated for this particular case.

In Iran there are childoffenders, still on death row.

Children are being hanged to death.
A child will be hanged to death.
