Fazar Kamangar: Urgent Action Appeal

Human RightsFarzad Kamangar is an Iranian teacher, officer in his union and defender of Kurdish minority rights was sentenced to death by an Iranian court for "enmity against God." In fact, he is being accused of being a terrorist for his activist activities. His lawyer, who was not allowed to defend him at trial, has said that there is no evidence of Farzad committing any those pre stablished activities.

According to the latest news on Farsi websites, the situation of Iranian teacher trade unionist Farzad Kamangar remains critical. Farzad is still alive, but facing the death sentence which has not yet been commuted. At present, he is in solitary confinement in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison in section 209, the section for political prisoners.

Many national and international organizations have attempted to have this sentenced commuted, but despite their efforts the death sentence is still upheld by the Iranian Supreme Court. Those who have shown solidarity with Kamangar are now also being subjected to intimidation by Iranian officials.

Your support is still urgently needed. Get to know how over here.
