Four Ahwazi Arab Political Prisoners have been Executed

December 5: Four #Ahwazi_Arab_political_prisoners have been executed. The #executions are were reported by #BBC #Persian and several other sources.
Ghazi Abbasi, Abdul-Reza Amir-Khanafereh , Abdul-Amir Mojaddami and Jasim Moghaddam Payam were sentenced to #death by Branch 1 of the #Ahwaz_revolutionary_court on August 15, 2012. They were convicted of “enmity with God”, which is a common charge made against Ahwazis critics of the government. I don’t know why only Ahwazis…. (only God knows why!!). Anyway, the death sentences were upheld by the Supreme Court in February, although it is believed that the lawyer representing Abdul-Reza Amir-Khanafereh was still in the process of appealing against the conviction before the executions.

The filthy #Iranian_authorities took the four Ahwazi #prisoners from #Karoun_prison on 3 November and held incommunicado by the Ministry of Intelligence without access to lawyers or family members.
