NCRI - The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the execution of two political prisoner brothers, Razgar (Habibullah) and Ali Afshari, 26 and 34 years old, who were hanged at dawn on Thursday, February 19 in Orumiyeh, offers its condolences to their families and the public in Kurdistan, especially the young combatants in this region.
There is no doubt that the martyrdom of the young people of this territory by the religious fascism ruling Iran only doubles the will of the Iranian people to overthrow this inhuman regime.
The Iranian Resistance calls on the UN Secretary General, the Security Council and all human rights organizations to condemn these brutal executions and to take binding measures against brutal and systematic violation of human rights, and especially to save the lives of other political prisoners facing execution.
Afshari brothers, from the city of Mahabad (in Iranian Kurdistan), were arrested in early 2011 along with two other brothers, Jaafar and Vali, and were tortured for months and were sentenced to death in the clerical regime's sham courts under the fabricated charge of "Moharebeh" (waging war against God).
Ali Afshari, who was injured during the arrest by the suppressive forces' bullet, was in critical condition due to infection of his wounds, but the henchmen refused to provide minimum medical treatments.
They were among the hunger striking political prisoners in Orumiyeh prison and for this reason were threatened by the regime's henchmen that if they continued their strike, their death sentences would be carried out.
Jaafar and Vali, the two other members of the Afshari family are still in prison.
