Stop executions in Iran
Three other imprisoned Baloch compatriots are also in danger of execution on charges of “moharebeh” (waging war against God). One of the three detainee’s cases is related to Mir-Baluch Zehi.
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran), strongly condemns this brutal murder as an extra-judicial execution because a person who had already been sentenced to prison has been hanged.
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran) urges the United Nations Secretary-General, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the Human Rights Council, as well as other human rights organizations to condemn this barbaric execution and to take urgent action to rescue the death row prisoners in Iran.
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran) also reiterates the need to establish an international commission of inquiry to visit Iran’s prisons and meet with prisoners, especially those in Sistan and Baluchestan prisons.

The clerical regime’s human rights dossier must be referred to the UN Security Council, and its leaders must be brought to justice for four decades of crimes against humanity.
