Foruhar petition drive

Petition drive by the Iran National Front, USA, in coordination with Iranian Human Rights Working Group and Democratic Network of Iran

To: The Honorable Mary Robinson
United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights
Geneva, Switzerland

We are outraged to learn of the brutal and gruesome killing of two prominent opposition leaders in Iran, Mr. Dariush Forouhar and Mrs. Parvaneh Eskandari-Forouhar on Sunday, November22, 1998.

We are sending this fax/e-mail to you to ask for your expression of condemnation and outrage against this extra-judicial execution. We are also very concerned about the safety and security of other opposition members in Iran, including Mr. Abbas Amir-Entezam who remains in jail.

For your information, Mr. and Mrs. Forouhar were found stabbed to death in their home in Tehran on November 22, 1998. Both of their bodies were mutilated. The similarity of this gruesome crime and the past assassinations of other IRI's critics and opponents, both inside and outside Iran, are horrifying and deserves the most urgent attention by international HR organizations.

Mr. and Mrs. Forouhar had recently called for a boycott of the elections of the Council of Experts. Also, a few months ago, Iran revolutionary commander, Rahim Safavi, had vowed to "behead" and "cut the tongues" of the opponents of the regime.

We the undersigned would like to ask you to send a fact-finding mission to Iran to investigate the killing of Dariush and Parvaneh Forouhar.

We believe this matter should be investigated in the context of illegal activities of the "pressure groups", the "information ministry" and the "revolutionary guards" and other governmental organizations that might have links with the semi-legal, semi-governmental "pressure groups".
