Free Free Zhila Karamzadeh Makvandi & ALL Imprisoned Members of Mourning Mothers of Iran!!
Petition Background (Preamble):
She had previously been arrested on February 8, 2009, while at home and spend 34 days in ward 209 of the Evin prison and was later released with a 50 million toman bond. On January 2010, Karamzadeh Makvandi had been sentenced on vague charges by a preliminary court to four years unsuspended term which was later reduced to two years unsuspended term and two years suspended term by an appeal court.
Arrest and imprisonment of Zhila Karamzadeh Makvandi, not only shows the ruling class› disregard for freedom of thought and speech and international agreements, but in addition, not permitting prisoners medical leave and or denying them needed medical attention is clear disregard for human rights agreements, including section two, paragraph 22 of The Prisoners Rights Convention, which indicates the transfer of sick prisoners in need of special care to non military specialty hospitals.
Mothers of Laaleh Park (Mourning Mothers of Iran) was founded in response to 33 years of killings and crimes committed by Islamic Republic, and to show solidarity and sympathy with Grieving Mothers. In response the regime has subjected these brave women with pressures, threats, detentions, and heavy handed prison sentences. By continually handing prison sentences for Mothers of Laaleh Park, the Islamic Republic is clearly demonstrating its high level of violation of human rights, and its disregard for freedom and justice. Not yet through with the news of prison sentences for Jila Karmzadeh Makvandi, Leila Seyfollahi, Nader Ahsani, Omolbanain Ebrahimi, Jila Mahdavian, Maryam Najafi, and Mansoureh Behkish, we have received news that prison sentences have also been ordered for three other individuals by the names of Hakimeh Shokri, Neda Mostaghimi, and Mr. Ramezani (the father of Ramin Ramezani, killed on the street in 2009), as well as another individual by the name of Seyed Mohammad Ebrahimi, charged with helping Mothers of Laaleh Park.
Prison sentences for Jila Karamzadeh Makvandi, Leila Seyfolahi, and Nader Ahsani have been affirmed in the Appeals Court and Jila Karmzadeh has been detained as of Dec 27, 2011. The sentences for other mothers from Mothers of Laaleh Park are in preliminary stages.
Their continued persecution is illegal under both international law and the Iranian constitution. It is made further unacceptable as yet another example of the Islamic Republic's dirty and vindictive war being raged against Iran's civil society.
