Despite Complaints About Torture, Forced Confessions, and Lack of Due Process, Brothers Fathi Hanged in Isfahan

Two brothers, Mohammad Fathi, 28, and Abdollah Fathi, 27, were hanged Tuesday morning inside Isfahan’s Dastjerd Prison. On Monday,  the family of the two executed prisoners told the Campaign that the case lacked due process and that the authorities had not paid attention to the irregularities of the case in reaching a verdict and issuing the sentence. The Iranian police claim that the two men were involved in an armed robbery incident in the northern province of Mazandaran. Their father, however, told the Campaign that their confessions to this crime had been extracted under torture. The Iranian officials have not commented on such allegations.

Iran Supreme Court approves death sentence for political prisoner

Iran’s Supreme Court has approved the execution sentence for political prisoner Habibollah Latifi, the Campaign to End Capital Punishment in Iran reports.

The campaign writes: “As the highest judicial court, the Supreme Court, rather than paying attention to the errors of this case, has treated it superficially and hastily approved the death sentence and sent it for execution.”

Latifi family has confirmed the Campaign report. An industrial engineering student from Ilam University, Habibollah Latifi was arrested in November of 2007 and sentenced to death for the charge of “enmity against God” (Moharebeh).

Dr. Walter Posch, Ali Samadi-Ahadi u.a. im Gespräch mit Carolin Emcke

In welcher Sprache, mit welchen ästhetischen Mitteln lässt sich die Wirklichkeit beschreiben, und wie lässt sie sich verändern in Geschichten, Filmen und über die sozialen Medien? Warum eignen sich manche Formen der Kritik besser als andere?

Eine Diskussion mit Dr. Walter Posch (Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik), Ali Samadi-Ahadi (Regisseur „The Green Wave“) und anderen, moderiert von Carolin Emcke.
