Help Save Saeed Masouri
In January of 2001, Saeed Masouri was arrested in Dezful, Iran, for having expressed opinions that support human rights and fundamental freedoms for the people of his country.
Saeed was placed in solitary confinement for a period of more than six months and was repeatedly tortured (mentally and physically) in an effort to convince him to denounce his beliefs and his “crimes” on national television. He bravely refused to do so, and was sentenced to death on June 9, 2002. Saeed currently resides in Tehran's infamous Evin prison, awaiting execution.
The hearing consisted of Saeed, a religious lawyer appointed by the court and a judge. This trial cannot be considered to have taken place in public by the standards of the international human rights instruments, which have been previously adopted by the government of Iran.
Amnesty International has expressed concern for the imminent execution of Saeed Masouri and has given their full support to this matter.
On behalf of Saeed and his family in Iran, Norway, Sweden and Canada, I urge you to sign this petition to assist in eradicating the unjust death sentence imposed on this innocent man.
