Two out of the 12 condemned men were political prisoners who were transferred from another prison to be executed with the others — an all-too-common method of silencing dissidents in Iran. On many occasions, political prisoners have been tagged with trumped-up convictions of drug trafficking and other crimes in order to receive the death penalty.
    Amnesty International has recorded at least 124 executions since the beginning of 2007. Two recent victims of the Iranian authorities‘ use of the death penalty were those whose alleged crimes were committed before the age of 18. In addition, the human rights organization reported that in one case, an 18-year-old girl, Nazanin, was sentenced to be executed for having, at age 17, stabbed to death one of three men in a park who were attempting to rape her and her younger niece.
    The pace of executions in Iran is stunning. In July alone, several public hangings were carried throughout the country: in the northern province of Mazandaran, the southeastern province of Sistan-va-Baluchist an, the central cities of Arak and Isfahan, the southern province of Fars, and in the northwestern province of East Azerbaijan, where three men were hanged as a group. Another group hanging took place in an undisclosed city, as witnessed in a shocking video smuggled out of Iran by members of Iran’s main opposition, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), this month that shows a young woman and two men being hanged in a public square.

  3. glocalist GRÜNE fordern OMV für Pressefreiheit im Iran einzusetzen
    Wien (31.7.07): Die GRÜNEN fordern die OMV auf, sich für inhaftierte Journalisten im Iran einzusetzen: Grund ist das geplante Engagement der OMV im Iran und die anhaltende Skepsis von KritikerInnen, dass die OMV Menschenrechtsstand ards im Iran mutmaßlich nicht einfordern werde. Nun gibt es einen Elchtest.
     Einen dringenden Appell an die OMV richtet die außenpolitische Sprecherin der Grünen, Ulrike Lunacek. Sie fordert die OMV auf, die Freilassung der beiden Journalisten Adnan Hassanpour und Abdolvahed „Hiwa“ Botimar zu fordern und ihren Einfluss in diese Richtung geltend zu machen (zum Hintergrund des OMV-Iran Geschäft sh. Bericht auf Glocalist Daily News >> www.glocalist- review.com/ index.php ). Eine mögliche Argumentation einer „Nicht-Intervention „, wonach man auf unabhängige Gerichte keinen Einfluss ausüben dürfe, kann wohl nicht stechen, da es im Iran keine unabhängigen Gerichte noch eine Gewaltentrennung existieren.
    Nach einem Bericht der Menschenrechtsorgan isation amnesty international drohe diesen die Todesstrafe. „Nachdem die OMV sich öffentlich für die Meinungsfreiheit stark macht – so wird alljährlich gemeinsam mit „Reporter ohne Grenzen“ der „Press Freedom Award“, ein Menschenrechtspreis für engagierte JournalistInnen, vergeben – sollte der Konzern dies nun auch unter Beweis stellen“, erklärte Lunacek. Mehr noch: Am 24. Juli hat amnesty international sie auf den „urgent action“ Plan gesetzt (sh. Aufruf >> urgent action ).
