Iran: Stop cruel death sentence of Mohammad Ali Taheri, a prisoner of conscience

Hands Off Cain expresses grave concern and outrage on the death sentence for Mohammad Ali Taheri in Iran on a bogus charge of “spreading corruption on earth”.
Taheri is the founder of a spiritual movement, practicing alternative medicine theories used in Iran and elsewhere.
Under international human rights law, the death penalty may only be used for “the most serious crimes”, which international standards limit to crimes involving intentional killings. Mohammad Ali Taheri has committed no crime and is being cruelly and solely punished for peaceful exercise of his rights to freedom of belief, expression and association.
Mohammad Ali Taheri is currently on hunger strike since he has not been allowed to meet his lawyer. All his followers around the world are protesting and opposing against his death penalty. Some of the followers have been arrested and are being tortured while others are on hunger strikes in sympathy with Mohammad Ali Taheri.
Within the last couple of weeks, many international organizations and the US Department of State have objected to this sentence by writing letters and issuing statements.
On 5 August, Zeid Raad al-Hussein, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in a statement that the death sentence against Taheri illustrated Iran’s “problematic” application of the death sentence for lesser crimes and for crimes committed by minors. Zeid called on Iranian authorities to “immediately withdraw the charges against Taheri and ensure his unconditional release.”
Therefore, we seriously condemn Mohammad Taheri’s death sentence and call on the Italian Government other than UN and all democratic states to act for annulling his death sentence and for his immediate and unconditional release.

Taheri is nothing other than the founder of an alternative medicine movement, based on spiritualism, widespread in

Italian Text:

Mohammad Ali Taheri è un cittadino iraniano accusato di “diffondere la corruzione in terra” e per questo condannato a morte.
Taheri non è altro che fondatore di un movimento spirituale che pratica le teorie di medicina alternativa utilizzate in Iran e altrove.

Non ha commesso alcun crimine. Lui vuole curare, non ammazzare.

Viene punito solo per aver pacificamente esercitato i diritti alla libertà di religione, di espressione e di associazione.

Secondo le norme internazionali sui diritti umani, inoltre, la pena di morte può essere utilizzata solo per “i crimini più gravi”, considerando tali quelli relative a omicidi intenzionali.

Mohammad Ali Taheri è attualmente in sciopero della fame dal momento che non gli è stato permesso di incontrare il suo avvocato. Alcuni dei suoi seguaci sarebbero stati arrestati e torturati, mentre altri sono in sciopero della fame in solidarietà con Mohammad Ali Taheri.

Nelle ultime due settimane, molte organizzazioni internazionali ed il Dipartimento di Stato americano hanno biasimato la condanna.

Nel mondo sta crescendo una mobilitazione contro la sua condanna a morte e noi abbiamo intenzione di sostenerla.

Sosteniamo questa battaglia insieme firmando e condividendo questa petizione.
