ranhumanrights.org: A few hours ago, the Islamic Republic News Agency announced executions of two prisoners, Ali Saremi, an alleged member of the Mojahedin-e Khalgh Organization (MEK), and Ali Akbar Siadat, referred to as “an operative of an espionage service,” on Tuesday morning. Their charge was moharebeh, enmity with God.
The two executions came only 48 hours after the execution of Kurdish activist Habibollah Latifi, who was scheduled to be hung on Sunday morning inside Kurdistan Province’s Sanandaj Prison, was halted. There is growing concern that other individuals who have received execution sentences may be facing the same fate.
During an earlier interview with the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, Ali Saremi’s wife had refuted the allegations of her husband’s membership in MEK, saying that her husband was interested in the group, but did not do any activities for them.
IRNA quoted the Tehran Prosecutor’s Information website about Ali Saremi’s sentencing: “Ali Saremi was arrested in September 2007 for his repeated activities, attendance in ceremonies and anti-revolutionary organizations in support of the MEK, and transmitting news to the cult. During a search of his home, some CD’s, films, photographs of MEK members, and hand-written documents from the mentioned cult were discovered and confiscated. The session for reviewing Ali Saremi’s charges was convened with the attendance of the Prosecutor’s Representative and his defense lawyer >>>
