Iran: officials

Keyvan Goudarzi, a thirdyear Mathematics student from Iranshahr university in Kermanshah has been found dead under suspicious circumstances.
His body was found alongside the telecommunication tower behind the kitchenarea.
Universiteitsofficials tried to trade him off as a worker whom has died due to electric shock, after that they implied his death was due to a suicide.
Witnesses told that his face was severely damaged.
Goudarzi has been active during Mousavi’s electioncampaign.

International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran reported April 20 that three members of one family and two of their friends, after an unfair trial with weak evidence are sentenced to death.
Motahareh Bahrami and Mohsen Daneshpour Moghaddam (husband and wife) and their son Ahmad Daneshpour, are along with two of their friends, Rayhaneh Haj Ebrahim and Hadi Ghaemi (not related to the director with the same name of International Campaign for Human Rights) sentenced to death.
These five cases and of the also sentenced to death Abdolreza Ghanbari are based on allegations that the defendants sent videos and pictures to the opposition group Mojahedin-e Khalq (MKO).
The other son of the family, Meysam Daneshpour told Roozonline that his brother and parents were arrested in their house following the Ashuraprotests. At an interview with the Campaign he confirmed the deathsentences and said that his family did not have an independent lawyer during the trial and that the sentence was not officially handed out. He also said that they did not have access to them for two months.
During the appeals process, Mohammad Sharif, a prominent humanrights lawyer, was able to represent the defendants and launch an appeal for Motahareh Bahrami, Rayhaneh Haj Ebrahim, and Hadi Ghaemi, at Branch 36.
The appeals for Mohsen and Ahmad Daneshpour had been sent to Branch 36 and already confirmed before Sharif could represent them.
The lawyer says they are charged with “deliberate cooperation with MKO,” “gathering and colluding against national security,” and “propaganda against the regime and in the interest of enemies.”
The evidence supporting these charges included a trip by the parents to Iraq to visit another son, who is a member of MKO, sending videos and pictures to MKO, and participating in demonstrations.
In a similar trial is 47-year-old teacher Abdolreza Ghanbari sentenced to death.
An attorney, who represents political prisoners told the Campaign that when authorities accuse political prisoners of being members of opposition groups, it becomes impossible for Iranian media, human rights lawyers and defendants’ families to publicize these cases.This gives the authorities a free hand to use such punishments to terrify government critics and dissidents.
International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran strongly condemns the issuance of disproportionate sentences based on unfounded charges, resulting in executions aimed at quelling dissent
