Iran: more October 2012

The Special Rapporteur for humanrights in Iran from UN says in an interview with International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran (ICHRI) that every day that journalists in Iran spend in jail, Iran suffers a reputational problem somewhere in the world.
In this interview he offered advice to Iran’s Human Rights Council, discussed the situation of imprisoned journalists, and expressed his broader message of hope for the Iranian people.

Amnesty International says that Nobelprize laureate Shirin Ebadi and six humanrightsorganizations called on Iran to allow all prisoners access to necessary medical care and family visits to which they are entitled under international human rights law.
Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, Reporters Without Borders (RSF), International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), and Iranian League for the Defence of Human Rights (LDDHI), renewed with Ebadi, their call on authorities to quash the peaceful activists’ convictions and release them.
Journalists, humanrightslawyers and defenders held solely on account of their peaceful activities, none of these people should be in prison.

Humanrightsactivists are concerned about five Kurdish political prisoners who three weeks ago were transferred to an unknown location and since then there is no information about them.
Their names are Jehajir Badouzadeh (life in prison), Ahmad Tamoueh (15 years), Ali Ahmad Suliman (5 years), Mustafa Ali Ahmad (10 years) and Yusuf Kaka-Mami (7 years) who were sentenced on charges of collaboration with PJAK.
