Amnesty International warning of execution of Ahwazi Arab political prisoners by Iran regime

Ahwazna

Today, Amnesty International has called again for an urgent action to stop what it calls the imminent threat of the planned execution, on 22 May of two political prisoners. AI said that Ali Chebieshat and Sayed Khaled Mousawi, two Ahwazi Arab political prisoners from Ahwaz have been transferred to an undisclosed location that suggests they are in imminent danger of being executed. Citing recently released reports of the execution of 6 Ahwazi natives in November and early December, the AI says these two could also be in an urgent danger of being executed.

In this report amnesty international urged Iranian judicial system to set an immediate moratorium on executions of the two Ahwazi political prisoners whose death penalty have been confirmed recently by the supreme court in Tehran. “The harrowing stories of Ali Chebieshat and Sayed Khaled Mousawi show how justice in Iran is seriously flawed. People are routinely forced to ‘confess’ to crimes they didn’t commit and face deeply unfair trials before being marched to the gallows,” said Hassiba Hadj-Sahraoui, Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Amnesty International.
