Open letter to Dr. Ban ki-Moon, Secretary – General, U N. Torture and executions in Iran

by Victoria Azad, Member of Amnesty International

According to recent events and evidence put forward by various independent human right organizations, the Islamic republic of Iran has put the people under immense pressure and dissidents are being imprisoned under false accusations such as “acting against national security”, espionage and even high treason. These detainees are tortured both physically and mentally and now the government is using increased executions as a deterrent method. We are sure that you are well informed on the recent five political executions and no doubt additional executions will take place.
