Reports indicate Iranian regime executed Kurd political prisoners, Ramin Hossein Panahi, Zaniar and Loghman Moradi, morning- September 8, 2018
Ramini Hossein Panahi
Ramin Hossein Panahi, a 22-year-old man from Iran’s Kurdish minority was sentenced to death in January after a grossly unfair trial and amid serious torture allegations, reported Iran News Wire.
Zanyar and Loqman Moradi
Zanyar Moradi and Loqman Moradi were arrested in Marivan by the agents of the Ministry in July 2009. After a few months, they were sent to Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran, presided by Judge Salavati, where they were sentenced to public execution on the charge of “Moharebeh through action against national security, being a member of Komalah party, assassinating the son of Marivan’s Imam of Friday Prayer, spying for Britain, disturbing security at the time of the presence of the Supreme Leader in Marivan”.
In recent months, the Kurdish human rights activists, in particular his brother Amjad Hossein Panahi, were scheduling several campaigns through social media avoiding Ramin’s imminent execution.

On September 7th, UN rights experts call on Iran to halt imminent executions of Ramin Hossein Panahi and the other two Kurd prisoners Zanyar and Loghman Moradi.
“We urge the Government of Iran to immediately halt their executions and to annul the death sentences against them in compliance with its international obligations,” the experts said in a joint statement, following reports that they will be executed on 8 September.
Engulfed with domestic and international crises that escalate and deepen every day, the mullahs’ regime has resorted to a new wave of executions in order to intensify the atmosphere of intimidation and terror in the society in a bid to prevent the spread of popular uprising. This is a criminal process that will only add to the anger of the people who are fed up with the Iranian regime.
