Maryam Rajavi calls to save Saman Naseem and 5 Iranian political prisoners facing execution

NCRI - Mrs Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, has called for urgent action to save the life of Saman Naseem, who was arrested when he was 17, and five political prisoners being on death row in the central prison in the city of Orumiyeh (northeastern Iran).

The six men were transferred to isolation on Wednesday (February 18) to await their execution.
Mrs Rajavi urged the United Nations, the UN Human Rights Council, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and all human rights organizations to take action to save the lives of these political prisoners.
She also called on UN Secretary General and Security Council, the United States and the European countries to take urgent and effective measures to save political prisoners in Iran, particularly these six prisoners, who are facing imminent execution.
Political prisoners Saman Naseem, Younes Aghayan, Sirvan Nejavi, Ebrahim Shapouri, Habibullah Afshari and Ali Afshari have all been sentenced in sham courts of the clerical regime and their death sentences have been confirmed by the mullahs' Supreme Court.
Younes Aghayan, an Azeri political prisoner and a follower of Ahl-Haq, has already spent 10 years in prison.
Saman Naseem, Sirvan Nejavi and Ebrahim Shapouri, have been sentenced to death for cooperating with the Life of Kurdistan Party (PJAK).
Habibullah Afshari, 26 and his brother Ali Afshari, 34, have been sentenced to death for supporting the Komala.
Continuing the policy of appeasement with regards to the Iranian regime, and silence against the dire situation of human rights in Iran, not only has given the ruling mullahs an open hand to impose the cruelest repression against the Iranian people, but it also has emboldened the clerical dictatorship in warmongering and export of terrorism and fundamentalism in the region as well as the world.
Mrs Rajavi demanded that the dossier of the clerical regime's crimes including the execution of 120,000 political prisoners be referred to the International Criminal Court by the United Nations Security Council.
