letter to iranian authorities

Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
President
The Presidency
Palestine Avenue, Azerbaijan Intersection
Tehran
Islamic Republic of Iran

(enter date) July 2008

Dear Mr President

I write to bring to your attention the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the death sentence passed against Mr Farzad Kamangar, a teacher, journalist and civil society activist in Kamyaran.

According to his lawyer, the Revolutionary Court of the Iranian regime passed this sentence against the 33-year-old Kurdish teacher on 25 February 2008 - with the prosecution producing "absolutely zero evidence" to support its case! The closed-door court hearing lasted less than five minutes "with the judge issuing his sentence without any explanation and then promptly leaving the room."

The security forces detained Mr Kamangar in July 2006, shortly after he arrived in Tehran from Kamyaran. Since his arrest, the authorities have held him in various prisons and tortured - his family and lawyer have seen clear signs of this when visiting him.

Farzad Kamangar should be freed immediately and unconditionally and those responsible for his incarceration and torture held to account.

I look forward to hearing about your positive intervention in this regard in the international media.

Yours sincerely

(enter your name, trade union etc. position & country)

Dr Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
