Iran: Release Mohammad Ali Taheri (UA 212/14)

Urgent Action
February 17, 2016
Iran’s Supreme Court quashed Mohammad Ali Taheri’s death sentence in December and returned his case to the Revolutionary Court to order further investigation. He is now in his fifth year of solitary confinement, and has begun a new hunger strike in protest.  
 
1) Please write immediately in Persian, English or your own language:
  • Urging the Iranian authorities to release Mohammad Ali Taheri immediately and unconditionally, as he is a prisoner of conscience, held solely for the peaceful exercise of his rights to freedom of expression and association;
  • Calling on them to ensure he has access to a qualified health professional who can provide health care in compliance with medical ethics, including the principles of confidentiality, autonomy and informed consent; 
  • Calling on them to order independent and impartial investigations into his prolonged solitary confinement, which violates the absolute prohibition of torture and other ill-treatment, and bring those responsible to justice.
