The henchmen of the Iranian regime have transferred 24-year-old political prisoner Ramin Hossein Panahi to the prison quarantine in Sanandaj for execution. He was arrested by the Revolutionary Guards in July last year and was sentenced to death in the regime’s courts on charges of “acting against national security and membership in Komala (an Iranian Kurdish organization).” Despite international efforts to stop this criminal punishment, Iran’s Supreme Court upheld his death sentence. Ramin’s brother has been sentenced to eight and a half years imprisonment.
Iranian Resistance calls on all the people, especially the Kurdish youth, to protest against the death sentence of Ramin Hossein Panahi, and calls on all international human rights institutions, especially the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, to take action to save his life.
