MEK Iran: Stop Execution
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), urges the United Nations High Commissioner and the UN Human Rights Council, and UN rapporteurs to take urgent action to prevent the criminal execution of Hossein Shahbazi in Adelabad Prison in Shiraz.
International call to prevent execution
The Iranian Resistance published a statement that urges the United Nations High Commissioner and the UN Human Rights Council, and UN rapporteurs to take urgent action to prevent the criminal execution of Hossein Shahbazi in Adelabad Prison in Shiraz. Hossein Shahbazi has been in prison for three years and was 17 years old when he was arrested for an alleged crime.
The statement indicates that he will be executed on Monday, June 28, by the mullahs’ regime headed by henchman Ebrahim Raisi.
Hossein Shahbazi tortured and mistreated
Hossein Shahbazi after his arrest was tortured and mistreated, and sentenced to death by the Third Branch of the Criminal Court of Fars Province.
Even by the mullahs’ regime, standard execution of persons under the age of 18 are not allowed, but executions of (minors) at the time of their arrest is another routine violation of human rights by the clerical regime, and more juveniles are on death row in regime prisons. These disgraceful crimes are a clear violation of international treaties and conventions to which the Iranian regime is officially committed.
The Iranian Resistance urges the UN
The Iranian Resistance once again urges the United Nations and member states, especially European countries and human rights organizations, to take urgent action to prevent the execution of Hossein Shahbazi and save the lives of prisoners on death row.
Khamenei and other regime leaders must be brought to justice for their crimes against humanity. Silence, inaction, and appeasement of such a regime are tantamount to undermining democratic values and human rights for which the world has sacrificed tens of millions of lives. Protection of these values is a core principle of the United Nations and the European Union.
