    Two political prisoners hanged in Iran today

    Mullahs’ judiciary sentences 11 political prisoners to death
    Maryam Rajavi: People’s courageous uprising will continue until overthrow of the regime despite these barbaric crimes

    NCRI - Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, described death sentences issued for 11 political prisoners on the bogus charge of “mohareb” (waging war on God) and the hanging of two as a new phase in the medieval regime’s barbarity. She stressed that this was a clear sign of the regime’s weakness and exasperation in face of the nationwide uprising. Resorting to such crimes would only strengthen people’s resolve to change the religious dictatorship, she added. The People of Iran and youths in particular will no doubt continue with their courageous uprising until the overthrow of the clerical rule in its entirety and establishment of freedom and democracy in their country, Mrs. Rajavi emphasized.

    The two political prisoners were hanged today for “organizing protest demonstrations” and having links to “recent riots,” although they had been arrested months before the nationwide uprisings that were sparked by the sham elections in June. They had been imprisoned throughout this period.

    The mullahs' Deputy Minister of the Intelligence and Security said yesterday, “More than 20 members of the Mojahedin (PMOI) who were involved in organizing riots have been arrested and are charged with moharebeh.”

    Earlier, the Judiciary's First Deputy had said, “In light of the fact that the movement is an organized movement,… anyone who helps it in any way or under any circumstances, would deserve the title of Mohareb.” (State-run TV Channel 2, December 30, 2009)

    Mrs. Rajavi called on the United Nations Secretary General, UN Security Council, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and all other relevant international bodies to take urgent measures to prevent killing of political prisoners and those detained during recent uprisings. She reiterated that inaction on the part of the international community toward the bloodthirsty regime would embolden it to continue with killings and atrocities.

    She called for the referral of the regime’s human rights violations and brutal suppression of the people’s uprising to the UN Security Council for the adoption of binding measures including bringing to trial the regime’s leaders and those responsible for suppression, killing and torture. Political and economical ties with the regime must be made conditional on full improvement of the human rights situation in Iran, she reiterated, adding that it is the minimum the Iranian people expect from the international community.
