Human Rights News – 10.8.2012 – For decades, the Islamic Republic of Iran has led a targeted campaign of repression against Kurdish activists within Iran’s borders. Today, this persecution is particularly acute, with an estimated 14 Kurdish activists currently on death row in Iran.
The Iran Human Rights Documentation Center’s latest 70-page report, “On the Margins: Arrest, Imprisonment and Execution of Kurdish Activists in Iran Today”, details the nature of this oppression and its violation of Iranian and international laws.
The report contains numerous witness testimonies from Kurdish activists who were former political prisoners, and from the former cell mates, lawyers, family and close friends and associates of Kurdish political prisoners who have been executed or are currently on death row. The full testimonies of these witnesses will be published in a special IHRDC release next month.
