All political prisoners must be freed immediately and unconditionally


20 June 2015, the International Day to Support Political Prisoners in Iran


The world needs to know and be alarmed about the crimes committed against the political prisoners in Iran by the Islamic Regime, during the last 36 years. This urgently requires our attention and action:

The number of executions that have been carried out by the regime in Iran has been on the rise since Hassan Rouhani has come to power. 

Attacks on political prisoners have deteriorated: long prison sentences; extending prisoners’ sentences after time being served; denying rights to lawyers; depriving prisoners to medical help; regular raids of prisoners’ cells have increased – all these attacks have been on the rise in the recent years.

The abuse and torture of political prisoners is routine. Increased prosecution of labour activists, student’s activists, children rights and women rights activists, religious minorities, gays, lesbians and families of political prisoners has been on the rise. 

Despite all of this many political prisoners risk their lives to openly condemn the inhuman treatment by the Islamic regime and demand that political prisoners are defended.

We appeal to the international community and its affiliated organisations not to close their eyes to these serious violations of human rights by the Islamic regime. 

We call on them to take serious, meaningful and decisive action to pressure the regime in Iran to comply with the internationally recognized human rights laws and to stop torture and execution.

On 20th June 2015, the international day to support political prisoners in Iran, We the signatories of this letter express our solidarity with all political prisoners and their families in Iran. 

We the undersigned demand that international human rights organisations pressure the Islamic regime systematically and effectively, to comply with the following demands:

  • To halt executions in Iran immediately and unconditionally. To stop all forms of torture of political prisoners.
  • To provide political prisoners with medical care and medications unconditionally 
  • To release all political prisoners
  • To end harassment and persecution of families of political prisoners
  • To end harassment, persecution and torture of lawyers who are representing political prisoners and to provide prisoners with legal advice and lawyers at all stages of their imprisonment.
  • To allowed unrestricted access of independent international human rights organisations for prison inspection.
