Open letter by Zeinab Jalalian

Open letter to international human rights organizations,
by Zeinab Jalalian
who sits on death row in Iran

November 28, 2009

Dear Human right organisations

My name is Zeinab Jalalian.
I am 27 years old Kurdish female, political prisoner,

in Iran prison.

My Death sentence was confirmed by Iranian Supreme Court.
I am currently ill because of torture and I don’t have any lawyer to defend me.
I want to tell you that. Trial took only few minute.
Court told me: “You are a God’s enemies. Have to be hanged very soon”. That was all my court process.

I asked judge to give me permission to say goodbye to my mother and family before execution, he told me “shut up”

and rejected.

Zeinab Jalalian

Save Bahman(shirko) Moarefi - Iran

Save Bahman(shirko) Maarefi from Execution Petition

"... In preparation for his execution, Shirko Maarefi was transferred to solitary confinement at Saghez central prison. He is one of the Kurd civil activist who was arrested in Saghez last year and was sentenced to death after being interrogated and severely tortured.

He may be taken for execution unannounced as his lawyer Khalil Bahramian has confirmed the news of Shirko’s transfer to solitary confinement. Based on the unannounced and expeditious execution of Ehsan Fatahyan, the regime might take the same position and execute Shirko in 1-2 days."

updated Nov. 15 -
Shirko Moarefi execution was postponed

Fattahian Presente !!!

If the rulers and oppressors think that, with my death, the Kurdish question will go away, they are wrong. My death and the deaths of thousands of others like me will not cure the pain; they will only add to the flames of this fire. There is no doubt that every death is the beginning of a new life.
