August 2010

August 29 Ebrahim Hamidi has been transferred to Evin Prison in Tehran from Tabriz.

There is also unconfirmed news that Ali Saremi has been transferred to an undisclosed location.

As we saw with the Mother's Day (May 9, 2010) executions, the transfer of condemned political prisoners can be a sign of pending executions.

August 2 The Committee of Human Rights Reporters (CHRR) reported today that bazaari Javad Laari has been sentenced to death as Moharabeh.

Please write Letter to the Editor to world and local newspapers to raise awareness about the condemned political prisoners.

August 1 Six prisoners are in imminent danger of execution. They are: Abdolreza Ghanbari, Jafar Kazemi, Mohammad-Ali Haj-Aghaie, Ahmad Daneshpour Moghadam, his son Mohsen Daneshpour Moghadam, and Mohammad Ali Saremi.

We noted on May 15 that their sentences were upheld by the appeals court, but they have now been finalized. The six prisoners could be executed at any time, without prior notice.

We have sample letters to the UN and Iranian authorities, urging the regime to overturn these sentences.

We have also posted information about the six prisoners and the regime's crimes against humanity on CNN iReport.
