Iran: anti

Hashemi Rafsanjani criticised the political situation in Iran.
He wrote in a letter published on his website on June 27, one day before the 29th anniversary of a 1981 blast at the Tehran office of the Islamic Republican Party that killed many political leaders, that Iran's current political environment is deeply divisive.
Currently Rafsanjani is chairman of the Council of Experts, the body charged with the supervision of Iran's supreme leader, but during the presidential election he supported the opposition.

The brother of Zeynab Jalalian says that he has not heard from her since a month.
She was sentenced to death in 2009, for cooperating with the PEJAK and is in imminent risk of execution.
She was imprisoned in Kermanshah and Sanandaj, but was transfered to Evinprison ward 209, even though she has already been sentenced.
A month ago she telephoned her family that she is in Evinprison, but since then, nothing was heard from her.
Authorities stated they have lost her file and they can't do anything.
According to her brother the attorneys and the humanrights activists said they would help but they didn't do anything.
Her lawyer says that he has not been able to access the case file and the only way to help her is to contact the UN Secretary General and ask for his direct intervention.
