Mr. Motahari called these interference with the Government executive responsibilities as a kind of anarchism in Iran.....
MP Ali Motahari in his letter to Rohani warned if these kinds of activities continued ,he would summon the Minister of Interior for impeachment .

It is needed to say that; the Minister of Interior of Rohani Government is an element of the radical Jebhe Paydari group ( Like Ahmadinejad ) .

Canadian permanent resident Mostafa Azizi to stand trial on June 1st


 Canadian permanent resident Mostafa Azizi to stand trial on June 1st

PEN Canada calls on the Government of Iran to drop all charges against writer and film producer Mostafa Azizi and calls for his immediate and unconditional release.

Canadian permanent resident Mostafa Azizi, former chair of the Iran chapter of the International Animated Film Association, was detained by Iranian authorities on February 1, 2015, and is being held in Evin Prison. Azizi travelled to Iran in late December 2014 to visit his father who had been ill. He is facing charges of “insulting Iran’s Supreme Leader”, “insulting the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran”, “spreading propaganda against the system” and “gathering and colluding against national security”.  Though no further details have been offered by Iranian authorities, the charges apparently stem from Azizi peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression, including posting on Facebook and other social media sites.
The first 33 days of Azizi’s detainment was spent in Section 2A of Evin Prison, 14 days of which were in solitary confinement with no access to his family and lawyer. After being interrogated, he was moved to Section 8 of Evin Prison, which houses hundreds of prisoners, including prisoners of conscience. Prisoners in Section 8 are believed to be held in severely overcrowded, poorly ventilated, and filthy cells, which are infested with insects and lack adequate sleeping and sanitation facilities. Azizi suffers from a number of pre-existing health conditions, including asthma, eczema, rheumatism and high blood sugar that are reportedly being aggravated by the conditions in which he is being kept. He was transferred to the prison’s medical clinic for one day on April 13, 2015 after he lost consciousness briefly. After his time in solitary confinement, Azizi has been allowed weekly visits with his family.
Mostafa Azizi will stand trial before Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran on June 1, 2015.

Please send appeals:

  • Calling on the Iranian authorities to release Mostafa Azizi immediately and unconditionally in accordance with Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, if he is being held solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression
  • Urging them to grant Azizi all necessary medical treatment
  • Calling on Iran to comply with its obligations under Article 10 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and treat Azizi with humanity and with respect for the inherent dignity of the human person

Send appeals to:

Release Narges Mohammadi: Laureates

Six Nobel Laureates have released a statement urging the Iranian government to immediately release woman human rights defender, Narges Mohammadi from detention. The statement appears below.

Narges Mohammadi, Deputy Head and spokesperson for the Defenders of Human Rights Centre and a distinguished woman human rights defender, was arrested at her home in Tehran on 5 May 2015.

In 2012, Narges’s sentence was reduced to six years from an earlier sentence of 11 years because of her human rights activities. After she suffered a severe medical condition in prison, she was granted medical leave on bail.

According to her medical certificate, she has not yet recovered from her illness.

During her medical leave, Narges was repeatedly interrogated and harassed and eventually re-arrested and imprisoned with total disregard for her medical condition.

The Iranian government is a signatory to various international conventions. Based on the UN General Assembly Resolution on human rights defenders and Resolution on Protecting Women Human Rights Defenders, governments are obliged to refrain from creating obstacles for human rights defenders’ activities. Additionally, the resolution:

stresses that respect and support for the activities of human rights defenders, including women human rights defenders, is essential to the overall enjoyment of human rights, and condemns all human rights violations and abuses committed against persons engaged in promoting and defending human rights and fundamental freedoms.

We, the undersigned, strongly condemn the conviction and arrest of Nargess Mohammadi and demand her immediate and unconditional release.

Jody Williams, Mairead Maguire, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Shirin Ebadi, Leymah Gbowee, Tawakkol Karman – Nobel Peace Laureates

Message from Defenders of Labor's Right Association (Iran) to: 104th Session of the International Labor Conference, 1- 13 June 2015

Message from Defenders of Labor's Right Association (Iran) to: 104th Session of the International Labor Conference, 1- 13 June 2015

With Great Regards to ILO & ITUC

We hereby thank you for inviting us to the 104th Session of the International Labor Conference and unfortunately once more with to inform you of the impossibility to attend this session due to the same reasons as previous years. 
As we informed you on previous sessions held over previous years, labor activists and independent representatives of labor organizations are regretfully still either under prosecution or spending long terms of imprisonment.
We Are Hungry .....

In addition to those already imprisoned, on the threshold of this year’s labor day, labor Baker union activists Mahmoud Salehi and members of Urban public bus drivers syndicate: Ebrahim Madadi and Davod Razavi along with Osman Esmaieeli, another labor activist, were arrested and held in detention following judicial cases against them. In addition to the abovementioned activists, Pedram Nasrolahi, Koorosh Bakhshandeh and Fardin Miraki were also arrested with judicial cases against them. Labors from Bakers Union: Yadi Samadi and Esmaieel Shabani both have been sentenced to 5 months imprisonment and 30 lashes for defending their labor interests and claims.
Also Jafar Azimzadeh and Jamil Mohamadi have been convicted and sentenced to 6 and 3 years of imprisonment for their labor activities, respectively.
The long list of arrests and conviction of labor activists does not end here. The representative of Saveh Profile Workers have also been arrested. These workers were on strike for 4 months of back wages.
All the above injustices towards labor activists has taken place amid more than 2000 protests of laborers, teachers and nurses who claim long delays of payments or salaries, sudden and intermitten lay offs, discrimination, and other cases of injustice registered over the last year. For instance Ahvaz Urban Railway workers have not received their salary for more than 7 months and these non-payments have become routine in many industrial and financial institutes.
Considering the fact that poverty line in Iran is now $1000, the official imposition of minimum monthly wage of $210 has forced more poverty and hunger on labor families.

While the laborers are suffering from the most difficult life conditions, they are also deprived of the right to their own independent organizations and representatives. As a result, the Iranian laborers have become one of the most oppressed laborers in the world
We expect from our fellow working-class members present at the ILO conference not to allow government-elected labor representatives of Iran to participate in this session and to investigate the condition of Iranian labor, especially labor prisoners by adopting a special paragraph.
We, hereby, also declare our solidarity with all the labor struggles around the world in demanding their rights and justice. We also declare that we should be united and act in solidarity as one class against the capitalist violators of our rights.

NEWS RELEASE: UN rights experts condemn recent upsurge in executions in Iran, many of them unreporte

GENEVA (8 May 2015) – The United Nations Special Rapporteurs on the situation of human rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, and on extrajudicial executions, Christof Heyns, today condemned the sharp increase in executions in recent weeks in the Islamic Republic of Iran. In many instances, executions have gone unreported by official sources, and the names of prisoners have not been published.

“When the Iranian government refuses to even acknowledge the full extent of executions which have occurred, it shows a callous disregard for both human dignity and international human rights law,” Mr. Shaheed stressed.
Between the 9 and 26 of April, as many as 98 prisoners are reported to have been executed, an average of over six per day. The latest wave brings the total number of executions since 1 January 2015 to more than 340, including at least six political prisoners and seven women.
“We are alarmed by the recent surge in the number of executions, which has occurred despite serious questions about fair trial standards,” Mr. Heyns noted. “Many of the prisoners executed during this period were charged with drug-related offences, which do not involve intentional killing and hence do not meet the threshold of the ‘most serious crimes’.

The independent experts drew special attention to continued reports of executions taking place in public, with 15 such executions known to have occurred already in 2015. “Executions staged in public have a dehumanising effect on both the victim and those who witness the execution, reinforcing the already cruel, inhuman and degrading nature of the death penalty,” they said.

The Special Rapporteurs jointly urged the Iranian Government to heed to the growing appeal by the UN human rights system to halt all executions and to establish a moratorium on the death penalty, with a view to abolishing the practice altogether.


Ahmed Shaheed (the Maldives) is a Visiting Professor at Essex University, UK; a former member of the Maldivian presidential Commission Investigating Corruption; and a foreign policy advisor to the President of the Maldives. Mr. Shaheed was Foreign Minister of the Maldives from 2005 to 2007 and from 2008 to 2010. He led the country’s efforts to sign and ratify all nine international human rights Conventions and to implement them in law and practice. He was appointed as the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran in June 2011 by the UN Human Rights Council. Learn more, visit:

The Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Christof Heyns (South Africa), is a director of the Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa and Professor of Human Rights Law at the University of Pretoria, where he has also directed the Centre for Human Rights, and has engaged in wide-reaching initiatives on human rights in Africa. He has advised a number of international, regional and national entities on human rights issues. Learn more, log on to:

The Special Rapporteurs are part of what is known as the Special Procedures of the Human Rights Council. Special Procedures, the largest body of independent experts in the UN Human Rights system, is the general name of the Council’s independent fact-finding and monitoring mechanisms that address either specific country situations or thematic issues in all parts of the world. Special Procedures’ experts work on a voluntary basis; they are not UN staff and do not receive a salary for their work. They are independent from any government or organization and serve in their individual capacity.

Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the arrest of Narges Mohammadi, a journalist who works closely with Nobel Peace Laureate Shirin Ebadi and acts as spokesperson of the Centre for Human Rights Defenders, an organisation founded by Ebadi that was arbitrarily banned in Iran in 2006.
According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Mohammadi was arrested by intelligence ministry officials yesterday after receiving several threats and summonses, and was taken to Tehran’s Evin prison to resume serving a six-year jail term.
Mohammadi has been arrested several times in the past. After being arrested at her home on 10 June 2010, she was subjected to a series of interrogations and suffered a psychological breakdown. This led to her being granted a conditional release on 2 July 2010 and hospitalized with muscle paralysis.
She was sentenced two months later to 11 years in prison on charges of “meeting and conspiring against the Islamic Republic,” “anti-government publicity,” and “collaborating with the Centre for Human Rights Defenders.” The sentence was reduced to six years on appeal in March 2011.
Arrested again in the northern city of Zanjan on 21 April 2012, she was taken to Evin prison to begin serving the sentence. She was released three months later on bail of 600 million toman (480,000 euros) so that she could receive badly needed medical treatment and had been harassed by judicial officials and intelligence ministry agents ever since.
She was summoned for questioning at the prosecutor’s office inside Evin prison on 1 June 2014 and, at the end of her interrogation, was told that she was banned from travelling abroad.
Three days ago, on 3 May, she was summoned before a Tehran revolutionary court for alleged “activities against national security and anti-government publicity” and other “recent activities,” which have included participating in various campaigns against the death sentence and against impunity for violence.
She had also been supporting the mother of Sattar Beheshti, a blogger killed while held by the cyber-police on 3 November 2012, who has been demanding justice for her son.
Mohammadi’s arrest was quickly condemned both in Iran and abroad. Her fellow campaigners, including Beheshti’s mother, the well-known academic Mohammad Nourizad and Mohammad Malkion, staged a sit-in outside Evin prison.
Shirin Ebadi, who is the president of the Centre for Human Rights Defenders, immediately wrote an open letter to several UN special rapporteurs including Ahmed Shaheed, the special rapporteur for the human rights situation in Iran, urging them to do everything possible to obtain Mohammadi’s release.

You are one of the Iranian regime’s founders and, as such, one of the architects of the system of repression and censorship that has been in place in Iran since 1979.
As Ayatollah Khomeini’s successor, you stepped up persecution of journalists and demonized the foreign media and new media.
In view of your responsibilities ever since the Islamists seized power in Iran, Reporters Without Borders accuses you of the following crimes:
  • As head of the Revolutionary Guards (1978-1980), president (1981-1989) and finally Supreme Leaders since June 1989, you are guilty of arbitrary arrests, illegal imprisonment and torture. You are responsible for the disappearance of at least 100 intellectuals, journalists and netizens from 1979 until now.
  • You participated in the executions of the journalists Ali Asgar Amirani, Simon Farzami, Nasrollah Arman, Said Soltanpour and Rahman Hatefi-Monfared.
  • You instigated the murders of many other dissident journalists such as Ebrahim Zalzadeh, Majid Charif, Mohamad Mokhtari, Mohamad Jafar Pouyandeh and Pirouz Davani.
  • You covered up the atrocities that intelligence ministry officials committed in November and December 1998. The deaths in detention of Zahra Kazemi (2003), Ayfer Serce (2006), young blogger Omidreza Mirsayafi (2009) and Sattar Beheshti (2012) are all directly attributable to you.
  • You have fostered arbitrary rule and impunity. None of the perpetrators of the preceding abuses – including key judicial system ministers and officials close to you (Mohamad Raishahri, Mostafa Pourmohamadi, Golamhossien Mohsseni Ejehi, Ghorbanali Dorri-Najafabadi and Said Mortazavi) – have ever been brought to justice. Worse still, they have been appointed or promoted to senior posts with your approval.
  • Again, it was you who, on 20 April 2000, gave the order for a crackdown on the reformist press that had emerged in the wake of Mohammad Khatami’s election as president in 1997. Since then, more than 300 news media have been designated as “foreign enemies inside the country” and closed, thousands of pages have been censored and more than 500 journalists and netizens have been arbitrarily arrested, tortured and given very harsh sentences, while many others have had to flee the country. The crackdown is now targeting new media and satellite TV stations that broadcast to Iran from abroad. Your country is currently one of the world’s biggest prisons for news providers.
  • You are also the inventor of a “Halal” (national) Internet and promoter of a “digital apartheid,” which your regulatory bodies are imposing on the Iranian people.
You should be called to account for these gross violations of freedom of information, which contravene article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
