Your Excellency,

We, the undersigned, demand the immediate halt to the execution order issued to Mohammad Ali Haj Aghayari. The sentence is entirely illegal.

There is no evidence that Mohammad Ali Haj Aghayari has committed any ‘crime’ and lawyers say all he did was join the mass protests again the Iranian regime on Ashura.

Also, like Jafar Kazemi, Mohammad Ali Haj Aghayari has not had access to independent legal assistance and was restricted from seeing his family during his prosecution.

The Iranian regime’s judiciary reaffirmed the death sentence for Mohammad Ali Haj Aghayari, a political prisoner charged with supporting the People’s Mujahedin-e Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). We as the people from the global community call on the UN Secretary General, Security Council, High Commissioner for Human Rights and all human rights organizations to take urgent measures to save the lives of Mohammad Ali Haj Aghayari and other political prisoners.
