URGENT ACTION TO STOP HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION IN IRAN

 

The Honorable Kofi Annan,

Secretary General, The United Nations

Fax # (212) 963-4879

 

Further to our previous appeals and on behalf of Mrs. Homa Pedram, we are writing to ask for your urgent help for her husband Mr. Mohammad Reza Pedram. Mr. Pedram was arrested five years ago when he returned to Iran to visit his ailing father and has been in danger of execution since then. Mr. Pedram has denied the charge of espionage for the United States.   

Based on a recent statement issued in Tehran on Sunday, May 20, 2001, by National Union of University Students and Alumni of Iran, Mr. Pedram, a political prisoner since 5 years ago, has been transferred from Evin Prison to an unknown location and if not executed yet is in imminent danger of execution. We would like to urge you to use your good office and take necessary steps to save his life. His wife and his children who are living in the US are desperately appealing to the world community for their urgent action on behalf of Mr. Pedram. 

Mrs. Pedram or her daughter Nazila may be contacted at (630) 375-9795. 

Respectfully,

Mohammad Parvin, Director
