Iran: Halt the Execution of Shahram Ahmadi (UA 272/15)




Shahram Ahmadi, a Sunni Muslim man from Iran’s Kurdish minority, is at imminent risk of execution. He was sentenced to death for “enmity against God” after a grossly unfair trial, and his death sentence has been upheld by the Supreme Court. 
1) Please write immediately in Persian, English, Arabic, Spanish, French or your own language:
  • Urging the Iranian authorities to halt any plans to execute Shahram Ahmadi, quash his conviction and death sentence and order a retrial that complies with fair trial standards, without recourse to the death penalty;
  • Urging them to conduct an impartial and independent investigation into the allegations that he was tortured and otherwise ill-treated, bring those responsible to justice and exclude from trials any evidence that may have been obtained through torture or other ill-treatment.
  • Reminding them that fair trial rights during appeals entail the right to obtain public reasoned judgments for each appeal and trial transcripts within a reasonable time.
