1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Halt plans to carry out the execution of Ramin Hossein Panahi immediately;
  • Ensure that his conviction and death sentence are quashed and that he is released unless there is sufficient evidence not obtained through torture or other ill-treatment to charge him with a recognizable criminal offence and grant him a fair trial, without recourse to the death penalty;
  • Order a prompt, independent and impartial investigation into his enforced disappearance, prolonged solitary confinement and allegations of torture and other ill-treatment, bringing to justice anyone found responsible in fair trials.
