Ali Younesi contracts the Covid-19 in Evin Prison, a flagrant crime against humanity
Ali Younesi has contracted the Covid-19 disease in Evin Prison, despite previous warnings and calls by various international bodies and associations.
This is a flagrant crime against humanity.
I urge the UN Secretary General and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to immediately intervene to save the lives of Ali Younesi and Amir Hossein Moradi, and secure their release.
It seems that the clerical regime is deliberately doing this, particularly under international pressure for the release of Amir Hossein Moradi and Ali Younesi and seeks to eliminate them by the coronavirus. The mullahs are taking advantage of the pandemic, replacing hanging executions of prisoners by infection with the deadly virus. Otherwise, infections could be prevented through isolation, quarantine, and other preventive measures and treatment.
Many members of parliament, personalities, as well as international associations and bodies have called on the clerical regime to release Amir Hossein Moradi and Ali Younesi, two genius students of Tehran’s Sharif Industrial University. They include Nobel laureates, a group of members of the European Parliament, Amnesty International, parliamentary committees in the UK, Italy, Australia, Canada and Belgium, the Human Rights Federation of Italy, the Hands off Cain NGO from Italy, the Committee of Muslims in France, Irish MPs, the International Committee in Search of Justice representing 4,000 MPs in Europe and the U.S., the committee of MPs from Romania, MPs and dignitaries from Arab countries, and the Committee of French Mayors.
