Press Release

Geneva/Switzerland, November 4th 2013. The Islamic Republic of Iran executed Kurdish political prisoner Sherko Moarefi at 09:00 this morning, November 4, in the central prison of Saghez in Kurdistan of Iran.

Sherko Moarefi, born in 1985, was arrested in his hometown of Baneh in October 2008 on charges of “enmity against God” and being a member of Kurdish opposition party.

With the execution of Moarefi today, the number of Kurdish prisoners executions reach twelve among thirty seven prisoners been executed by the Islamic Republic of Iran during the last six days. This figure is provided by the Kurdistan Press Agency.

Six other Kurdish prisoners particularly Mr. Zaniar Moradi and Loghman Moradi, on death row, are at imminent risk of being executed after the execution of Moarefi today.

Despite the new government promises and words to please international community on nuclear issue, the wave of executions continue and concerns mostly the members of ethnic nationalities such as Kurds, balochis, Ahwazi-Arabs and Azeri.

The Association for Human Rights in Kurdistan of Iran-Geneva calls upon the UN Special Rapporteur for the situation of Human Rights in Iran to denounce the latest Kurdish prisoners executions in a communiqué.

The Association of Human Rights in Kurdistan of Iran-Geneva calls also upon the group 5+1 to break the silence on Iran’s executions and to include the Human Rights violations as part of Iran’s nuclear negotiation.
