Mr. Kofi Annan
Secretary General

Dear Mr. Kofi Annan, the Secretary General of the United Nations,

We, the undersigned, who are fighting for achieving democracy in our country, would like to have your attention for the following serious matter:

Recently, you accepted Mr. Saeed Mortazavi (a government prosecutor widely known to have sanctioned the torture and the execution of political prisoners)as a part of Iranian delegation to the UN's new Human Rights Council.

Saeed Mortazavi is responsible for the custody and interrogation of many prominent Iranian political prisoners.Among them the canadian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi of Montreal, who died while in prison in Iran, of wounds suffered at the hands of her jailers.

At first, the news about the creation of United Nations' new Human Rights Council offered us a new hope. That finally you are doing something to help those Iranians who are seeing their basic human rights shattered to pieces everyday by the despotic regime of Ayatollahs in Iran. That finally you will support Iranian people in their fight for having freedom in their country.

But unfortunately, our hope for a change was destroyed by the fact that you accepted a torturer and a grand human rights abuser as a part of Iranian delegation for the opening ceremony of UN's new Human Right Council.

Dear Mr. Secretary!

This is a totally shameful incident that has to be addressed by you appropriately otherwise the credibility of the new Human Rights Council will be in a serious doubt.

Please give us an explanation on how something like this can happen and how a number one enemy of human rights in Iran can be accepted as a part of UN's new Human Right Council meetings.

We the undersigned, urge you to give us an official and acceptable explanation. Until such a time comes,we will not stop our activities and will remember this bitter incident as lively as possible.

28 Mr.Kofi Annan, You have power and are saying you are defending human rights, I want to ask you why you have closed your eyes on the cruelty that is happening to the people in Iran . I dont know why you are giving Iran's government the chance to do all the stuff they are doing. I want to ask you not to give Iran's government the chance to destroy human rights in Iran. I think you have heard about the problems the Azari people are having at the moment, What have you done for Azeri people to defend them, The people who are under pressure in Iran?
