Radio Zamaneh: The Iranian judiciary has handed death sentences to two Kurdish political prisoners in Mahabad.
The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran quoted an informed local source saying Ebrahim Issapour and Sirvan Nejavi, who were arrested last July, have been sentenced to death for the charge of “enmity against God.”
The report indicates that their sentence has been appealed and sent to the Supreme Court.
According to the UN Special Rapporteur’s report from October 2011, 15 Kurdish activists have been reported to be on death row in Iran for charges relating to national security threats and spying.
In recent years, at least eight Kurdish political prisoners were hanged by the Iranian judiciary, including Ali Keydari, Farhad Vakili, Ehsan Fatahian, Farzad Kamanfar and Shrin Alam Holi.
According to Amnesty International, in 2011 at least 360 people were executed in Iran and 156 others were sentenced to death. According to Ahmad Shaheed’s report for the United Nations, executions in Iran have been on the rise since 2003.

Mass murder since 1501by asadabad on Sat May 12, 2012 09:51 PM PDT
The shiite terrorists continue to commit genocide against the Iranian Sunni Muslim community. Imagine how much worse the situation would become if they acquired a nuclear weapon which would serve as a deterrent. They could easily just buy the bomb from North Korea. Khamenei and his supporters must be overthrown and executed now!
Long live the struggle of Iranian Kurds.....by Roozbeh_Gilani on Fri May 11, 2012 08:49 PM PDT
for peace, democracy and social justice for Iran and all Iranians.
For thirty three years the fascist islamist regime has been jailing, torturing and killing kurdish men, women and children for no other reason than their brave stance against religious and ethnic apartheid imposed upon them by the fascist shiat vali faghih. and for thirty years the resistance against the fascist regime has continued stronger. The final victory and glory is for Iran and Iranians. The final defeat and shame is for islamist regime and their mozdoors.

The So-called FREE WORLD betrays you, with its deadly deceits.by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on Fri May 11, 2012 12:01 PM PDT
"The UN says at least 9,000 people have died since pro-democracy protests began in March 2011."
That is the depth of the deceit the BBC Carries out. Was the set of 1979 a pro-democracy protest?????? Of course it wasn't.
Was 2011 Libya a Pro-democracy Protest????? Are you serious????? Of course it wasn't.
Is Syria really a Pro-Democray Protest???
Do you truthfully think that Iraq was really about delivering Freedom???
it Time for Iranians to focus on the truth and discuss it?
USA/France/UK real goals : want backwardness, poverty corruption,
stagnation/regression, repression, anti-human rights, anti-democracy for
Iran and others. This has achieved so far all their cynical goals. Is
it clear to you now why their corporate controlled media and cia
influenced articles were intended to tarnish the image of the late shah
of Iran, after all the good and progress his team accomplished for iran????
Based on the wests real goals, can you now see why they really hated the
late shah and betrayed him and all Iranians in 1979? Does this need
explaining still. Because until this is understood few will be able to
comprehend why the west has turned its back on the human rights of
prisoners of conscience within Iran and loves extremists in power. I pray for the sake of Iran Hero's
in harms way that Iranians not just of IC, come to realize who really loves the IRI for
Iran and why. Who lied/exaggerated about the late shahs team with 1)dictator 2) corrupt 3) brutal torturer 4) repressive.
Something to raise your awareness and your conscience.
Islamist Rapistsby Fred on Fri May 11, 2012 07:19 AM PDT
The only way to put an end to the non-stop Islamist Rapist barbarity is regime change by the Iranian people with logistical help from the sane world
Airtight sanctions plus air/naval cargo inspection is a must
