Amir Entezam's letter to U.N. rights chief

About Iran... has received the following translated text of a letter written to Ms. Mary Robinson, the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights, by Mr. Abbass Amir-Entezam, the Islamic Republic's longest held prisoner of conscience (more than 18 years!) from the Committee in Defense of Abbass Amir-Entezam in New York. Please circulate it as widely as you can.

Dear Honorable Mary Robinson,

It is my obligation to declare my strongest words of support for your call upon United Nation to send peace keeping forces to East Timor.

This brutal and unjustifiable massacre of the innocent people of East Timor must be stopped immediately. The old policy of genocide by Indonesia has turned East Timor into an infernal combination of chaos, street executions and bloodbaths. The civilized world must not stand by and simply watch this.

Here in Iran, I am very familiar with political crisis in which the government has no control over the so called "pressure groups" and the law enforcement personnel siding with paramilitary forces in the streets. Such volatile situations can deteriorate quickly and claim many lives.

Let all dictators know that the world will no longer tolerate such unspeakable crimes and save what is left of a determined nation whose 21 year long resistance is one of the century's most outstanding tales of endurance and courage.

With best wishes,

Abbas Amir Entezam
Tehran, Evin prison
September 1999
