Prisoner Transferred to a Solitary Cell for Execution

Prisoner Transferred to a Solitary Cell for Execution

Based on reports received by Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran, prisoner Ardeshir Keshavarz was sent to a solitary cell for execution.

Ardeshir Keshavarz, 35, has been in prison for more than six years. Most of his time has been spent in section 1 of Gohardasht Prison in Karaj. Mr. Keshavarz was recently transferred to a solitary cell for execution and is to be executed on Wednesday.

Prisoner Ardeshir Keshavarz successfully ran away from prison, together with a number of other prisoners but was arrested a year later. During that time, the government’s media wrongly accused him of murdering judge Moghaddas.

Mr. Keshavarz was arrested and charged with clashing with police in Kermanshah. It is believed that a police officer was killed in this clash. He was sentenced to death, and after six years, they now want to execute him. His brother is currently in Gohardasht prison.

After the huge protests on December 27, Ali Khamenei and his appointed judge, Sadeq Larijani are intent on group executions to intimidate society.

Group executions, with political motives of intimidating and terrorizing society, are being done by Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader, and his appointed judge. Ali Khamenei has committed various crimes against the Iranian people and he is effectively known as a criminal against humanity.

Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran condemn the group executions by order of the Supreme Leader as a crime against humanity and requests Human Rights High Commissioner and International bodies to (in order to end the crimes against humanity in Iran) refer the case for the regime’s inhumane crimes to the Security Council of the United Nations for binding decisions.

  1. This evil leadership is seen and known for what it is by all the world. Why, Oh' Why does the world cower at the feet of such evilness and lose the world's respect for it's leaders. It is not only Iran's youth and people who suffers, but those of us who have entrusted, with faith and trust, hope that our leaders will do the right thing. In their silence, political correctness and cowardness to make tough decisions and stand out from the crowd, they condemn themselves in front of the people, the jury of the world. It is not Iran that is on Trial. It is the World's leaders and nations. Oh How they have stumbled and do fall in our sights. How far will they fall and will they catch themselves in time to save us from the fires and death of Iran's hateful-evil leaders.
