Dear Colleagues,
Bringing to your attention the impending trial of Mr Shahram Ahmadi, who will most likely be sentenced to death. Mr Shahram was arrested in 2009 and was held incommunicado for 33 months in solitary confinement. He was subjected to severe torture and ill-treatment. In 2012, he was sentenced to death on charges of Moharebeh, in a trial that lasted only five minutes. His case is currently at the appellate court and it’s certain that his death penalty will be upheld.
Mr Shahram’s younger brother, Mr Bahram Ahmadi, who was under 18 at the time of his arrest, was executed in 2012 on same charges. His body was even not handed over to his family for proper burial. Both of them were targeted for their religious activities. Mr Shahram’s father sought clemency from the Government but to no avail. The family is currently enduring tremendous pressure and plight and are in urgent need of support.
I appeal to all relevant activists and organisation to take up this case and prevent the execution of another innocent person.
Details about the case can be found in attached document, which is in Persian.

Best regards,
Mitra Pourshajari
