1.) Der iranische Staat plant, zwei weitere kurdische politische Gefangene zu ermorden, Julias Blog berichtet:
„Wie die Webseite “International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran” unter Berufung auf eine informierte örtliche Quelle mitteilt, wurden Ebrahim Issapour und Sirvan Nejavi wegen “Feindschaft gegen Gott” zum Tode verurteilt. Sie waren im Juli letzten Jahres verhaftet worden. Dem Bericht zufolge wurde gegen die beiden Urteile Berufung eingelegt, die Fälle sollen an den Obersten Gerichtshof gegangen sein.“
2.) Wie ESSF berichtet sind fünf Mitglieder der Labour Party Pakistan (LPP) und/oder der Progressive Youth Front (PYF) in Baltistan-Gilgit (im von Pakistan besetzten Teil von Kashmir) im Knast misshandelt worden:
„Since September 2011, Baba Jan – a Federal Committee member of the Labour Party Pakistan – and several other members of the LPP and the Progressive Youth Front (PYF) have been imprisoned for the support they gave to poor local residents who were demanding compensation after the devastating 2010 landslide and flood in the Hunza Valley, Gilgit-Baltistan.
April 28, 2012, the five detainees have been severely beaten in jail. According to the most recent news, three of them, Baba Jan, Iftikhar Hussain and Amir Ali received serious injuries. Baba Jan’s hand was fractured. The other two comrades, Ameer Khan and Rashid Minhas, received relatively fewer injuries. They were not allowed to receive any visit after this aggression.
Six days after the attack, the injured political detainees have been denied medical treatment – indeed, the jailers seems to have been given strict instructions in this regard.
The five detainees have been transferred to sub-jail Zulfiqarabad, Gilgit City, where hardened criminals are generally imprisoned. This is a source of acute concern as we fear that the state might seek to use these criminals to launch a second, possibly fatal, attack on the five comrades.
The Labour Party and the Progressive Youth Front have organised many rallies around the country to condemn the illegal detention of Baba Jan and his comrades – they are jailed under the anti-terrorist act!–, and subsequent torture, and to demand their immediate release.
The life of the five activists maybe in danger. It is of the utmost importance to widen the solidarity campaign to protect Baba Jan and his comrades, for them to be safe and to be released from custody immediately and unconditionally.
International solidarity initiatives have begun. We reproduce below letters of protests sent from Australia. They can inspire actions in other countries.
More information will be published as soon as possible on our website.
