On 17th July, Iranian media announced the execution sentence to be carried out on Iranian Kurdish journalist, Adnan Hassanpour, member of the editorial board for the banned weekly, Assu and civil activist, Abdolvahed (Hiva) Boutimar.

The execution sentence against these two individuals is in contravention of the human rights convention to which the Islamic Republic of Iran is a signatory of.

Along with a number of other civil activists, journalists, intellectuals, cultural, student, women, human rights and political activists and Adnan’s sister, Leyla, we condemn these sentences and ask for a fair trial of these two individuals.

We also ask other institutions across the globe to join us and speak out in support of these two Iranian Kurds.
