We are bringing this to your attention because we need your help to reverse this unjust and absorbed verdicts on this Activist.
Amir Amir ghouli is a leftist student activist and a children rights advocate. He was arrested on December 2014 for participating on a rally to support people of Kobani in their resistance against ISIS.
After persistent questioning, he was put in solitary confinement. One year after detention, he was sentenced to 21 years in prison through an unfair and unjust trial in Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court, presided by Judge Salavati ( famous for his heartrate towards activists and conducting unfair trials)
The “Revolutionary Court” has charged him of "insulting the sanctity of Islam and leaders", because of what he wrote on “Facebook” and "disturbing public order", because of his presence in "rally in Tehran in support of Kobani”.
According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its related covenants, all of what this political prisoner is accused of are parts of freedom of thought, conscience and expression. Mr. Amir Amir Gholi in Facebook was making comments in accordance to his leftists views. His political activism was open and peaceful. Therefore, this court order is invalid and against human rights.
