Iran: Kurds

The Kurdish political prisoner Behrouz Alakhani, 26 is imprisoned 19 months in solitary detention and is in Orumieyah Detention Center.
A source told ICHRI that Alakjani has been sentenced to death for “cooperating with PJAK” and “participating in the murder of the Khoy Prosecutor.”
He refuted the charge of participating in the murder. The judge found the defendant guilty of ‘participating in the murder’ and issued a death sentence against him based only on his own understanding and knowledge and testimony of a friend of this political prisoner, who has described him as “worried and anxious” on the night of the murder.
Authorities have prohibited Alakhani from telephone contact with his family. It is also said that he is in dire condition and was detained in detentioncentra in Salmas, Khoy and Orumiyeh.During his detention he was tortured physically and mentally.
