    THEY WILL NOT BE SILENCED: 213 IRANIAN JOURNALISTS, ACTIVISTS ISSUE PUBLIC APPEAL ABOUT MASS ARREST OF JOURNALISTS

     

    The following Press Release, signed by 213 Iranian journalists, activists and other civil society figures, was published by the Human Chain Project, with the following introduction:

     

    T below press release with the 213 signatures
    was sent to Human Chain Project
    with the request that we could publish it . Of course we do so. It is our pleasure and our duty.
    --Annette Meyer,
    Human Chain Project

     

    Please see below for a multi-language translation of the Press Release, as well as a list of the signatories. At the bottom are links to the Human Chain Project's Press Release as well as their Facebook homepage.

     

    THE PRESS RELEASE:

     


    We, Iranian journalists and signatories of this statement, are protesting the widespread arrest of
    our colleagues during raids of their offices.

     

    We are concerned that the simultaneous arrest of a large number of journalists may be politically motivated rather than being intended to serve justice.

     

    What deepens our concern is a statement by the Judiciary Spokesman before the arrests. He claimed to have obtained information from “reliable sources” which “suggests a number of journalists, apart from writing for domestic newspapers, have conspired with the West and anti-revolutionaries.”

     

    We are protesting the fact that the spokesperson talks about the journalists, whose arrests were planned in advance, as if they were tried lawfully and convicted in an open court in the presence of their lawyers and a jury and he is now simply informing the public.

     

    We, the journalists, request that the authorities demonstrate their respect for the law and release our colleagues immediately.

    Lassen Sie die Journalisten frei!
    Wir - iranische Journalisten, die diese Kom­mu­ni­qué unterzeichnet haben – protestieren gegen den Besuch der Mitarbeiter der Staatsanwaltschaft bei zahlreichen Zeitungen und Presseorganen des Landes und gegen die massive Verhaftung unserer Kollegen.
    Durch diese Verhaftungen, die am Samstag, den 26. Jan. begonnen hat, sind bis jetzt mehr als 16 unserer Kollegen verhaftet worden.
    Wir sind besorgt darüber, dass die gleichzeitige Verhaftung einer großen Anzahl von Journalisten politischen Zielen folgt und nicht der Wahrung der Gerechtigkeit dient. Die Ausführung des Sprechers der Justizbehörde verstärkt unsere Sorge. Er führte vor der Verhaftungswelle aus, dass er aus „zuverlässigen Quellen“ Informationen erhalten habe, wonach, „ einige Journalisten nicht nur in der Presse des Landes aktiv sind, sondern auch Hand in Hand mit dem Westen und der Konterrevolution vorgehen.“
    Unser Protest richtet gegen die Art und Weise der Ausführungen des Sprechers der Justizbehörde gegen die verhafteten Journalisten. Er redet so, als seien die Journalisten laut Gesetz vor öffentlichen Tribunalen unter Gewährung des Rechtsbeistandes vor einem Richterrat angeklagt und verurteilt worden und man nun nur über ihr Schicksal berichten müsse.
    Wir fordern die Verantwortlichen der Justizbehörde auf, umgehend die verhafteten Journalisten freizulassen und zu beweisen, dass sie die Gesetze achten.

    Nous, les journalistes iraniens, qui signent cette manifeste protestent contre la présence de quelques agents de procureur au bureaux des journaux et des magazines à fin d'arrêter quelques uns de nos collègues.
    Nous nous inqiettons que,l'arrestation de plusieurs journalistes en meme temps a des raisons politiques pour motif,sauf que l'exécution de justice.
    Ce qui fait augmenter nos inquiétudes est le discours de porte parole de pouvoir judiciaire avant l'arrestation de ces journalistes. Il a déclaré que selon des informations des sources bien informées quelques journalistes qui écrivent dans la presse ont une allience avec des oppositions et des pays occidentaux.
    Notre protestation basé sur le discours de porte parole de pouvoir judiciaire. Il en parle d'une façon si leur arrestation conforme aux règles légales et ils sont condamnés dans un tribunal public dzvant le jury, en ayant l'avocat. Nous, des journalistes iraniens demandent et exigent de chefs et de résponsables de pouvoir judiciaire de libérer rapidement des journalistes arrêtés et manifestent leur respect pour des règles.

    Noi giornalisti iraniani firmatari di questo appello, protestiamo contro l'arresto dei nostri colleghi nelle redazioni ad opera degli agenti della Procura di Teheran.
    Noi siamo profondamente preoccupati per questi arresti che sembrano essere dettati da esigenze politiche e sicuramente nel nome dell'illegalità.
    La nostra preoccupazione aumenta quando veniamo a conoscenza di quanto dichiarato qualche giorno prima dal portavoce dell'Autorità Giudiziaria "secondo fonti credibili un gruppo di giornalisti che lavoravano presso i quotidiani nazionali erano in combutta con potenze occidentali e forze contro rivoluzionarie".
    Protestiamo contro le parole del portavoce dell'Autorità Giudiziaria che riferendosi ai giornalisti incriminati, si esprime con tale certezza, come se questi avessero subito un regolare processo, con tanto di collegio di difesa, alla presenza di giudici e giurati e fossero stati condannati per i reati a loro imputati.
    Chiediamo alle autorità competenti di liberare immediatamente i nostri colleghi detenuti e dimostrare in questo modo di essere al servizio della Legge.

    نحن الصاحفیون الایرانیون الموقعون علی هذا البیان، نحتج علی اعتقال زملائنا علی ایدی عناصر تابعة للنائب العام في طهران، من داخل ادارات التحریر
    کما نشعر بقلق بالغ ازاء هذه الاعتقالات التي تشیر الی انها قد املیت نتیجة دواع سیاسیة وبالتاکید تحت مظلة اللاشرعية
    فما یزید في قلقنا هو تصاریح ادلی بها النائب العام قائلاً ان مجموعة من الصحافيين في الداخل، متواطئون مع القوی الغربية واالمعادین للثورة.
    ونحن نحتج علی کلام النائب العام المتحدث باسم السلطة القضائیة التي تشیر الی الصحافیین المحتجزین، اذ انه یعبر کما لو انهم قد ادینوا بجرائم منسوبة الیهم بعدما واجهوا محاکمة عادلة بوجود فریق للدفاع وبحضور القضاة والمحلفین. وهو ما لم یحصل. اننا ندعو السلطات الی الافراج الفوري عن زملائنا المعتقلین ...

    Gazeteciler Serbest Bırakılsın!
    Biz İran’lı gazeteciler olarak ve bu açıklamaya imza atanlar birlikte, İran devletinin haksız bir şekilde birkaç gazete ve dergi bürosunun basmasını ve meslektaşlarımızın yaygın bir şekilde tutuklamasına itirazımız var.
    Biz birçok gazetecinin tutuklandığı bir dönemde meslek görevimizi yerine getirirken endişe duyuyoruz, ki bu tutuklamalar siyasidir ve adalet niyeti ile yapılmıyor.
    Bizim endişemizi yoğunlaştıran, yargı sözcüsünün söyledikleri. Tutuklamalardan önce gazeteci arkadaşlarımızı hedef gösteren yargı sözcüsü ‘Güvenilir kaynaklar’ına dayanarak bazı gazetecileri ülke gazetelerinde yazarken elleri batı ve İran devrimin muhaliflerin elinde olduğu şeklinde iddiaları ortaya attı.
    Yargı sözcüsünün bu şekilde gazeteci arkadaşlarımızı hedef göstermesinin sebebi haksız ve hukuksuz tutuklamamaların üstünü örtmek içindir. Avukat savunmasına izin verilmeyen gazeteci arkadaşlarımız mahkemeye çıkarılmadan asılsız suçlamalarla tutuklandılar.
    Biz İran’lı gazeteciler olarak adli makamlardan yaptıkları hatadan vaz geçmelerini meslek arkadaşlarımız derhal serbest bırakmalarını ve onların kurallara saygı göstermelerini arzu ediyoruz.
