Behrooz Kazemi calling to stop his father's executed in Iran
Immediately after the Iran-Iraq War, Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa to eradicate "without delay" all political prisoners "still insisting on their stance." Some 30,000 political prisoners, a vast majority from the main Iranian opposition, the People's Mojahedin (PMOI), were subsequently rounded up and hanged in prison yards in groups in a space of a few months. The victims were dumped into mass graves, and a cover-up campaign quickly ensued.
Still, 22 years on, members of the so-called "Death Commission" who implemented Khomeini's cruel "final solution" lead lavish lives and hold Cabinet posts, continuing to hand down execution sentences for political prisoners like Mr. Jaafar Kazemi, 47 (one of the few survivals of that massacre) on death row as "Moharebe" (enemy of God) for sympathizing to the PMOI and visiting his son Behrooz Kazemi 18, n Camp Ashraf in Iraq.
Behrooz Kazemi, has called upon humanitarian Organizations and urged to take necessary measures to stop his father's execution. He has also written an article to be published in media informing public opinion about immanent execution of his father, attempting to stop the crime against his father and other political prisoners in Iran.
