Three Iranians executed after an 'unfair' in trialIslamic Republic
Wednesday 20 June 2012 -- This is a blog post at The Guardian
After trials human right activists described as grossly unfair Iran has executed three members of its Ahwazi Arab minority.
Abd al-Rahman Heidarian, Taha Heidarian and Jamshid Heidarian were executed after being moved from their prison to an unknown location at the weekend, Iran's human rights activists news agency (HRANA) reported.
The three brothers were sentenced to death along with two other Iranian Arabs [[They are not Arabs, they speak Arabic- Iran has no Arabs- holycrime.com]], Mansour Heidarian and Amir Muawi in April 2011 after being convicted of "enmity with God" on charge of killing a law enforcement official. The fate of the two other men is still unclear.
Last week, Amnesty International had warned against the imminent execution of the five, urging Iran to halt any plans to execute them.
"Sources in Almalashieh, Ahwaz (Khuzestan province in south of Iran) has confirmed... the execution of three Ahwazi Arab [[They are not Arabs, they speak Arabic- Iran has no Arabs- holycrime.com]] activists on Monday," the Ahwazi Human Rights Organisation (AHRO) in UK said in a statement.
"The Iranian authority informed their families that they were executed by hanging and in secret ... The AHRO condemns this criminal act against these activists who did not have fair trial," it said.
Ahwazi Arabs in Iran often face state discrimination in areas including education, employment politics and culture. In recent years, many members of the community have taken to the streets to protest at the discrimination against them. Groups advocating a separate Arab state have also been demonstrating, but not all protesters have been separatists. [[Not true]]!
Other ethnic and religious minorities in Iran have also faced discrimination in recent decades, including the country's Baha'i community who are refused rights such as education or running their own business. [[This is not true...!! ]]
Earlier this month, the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran (ICHRI), a non-government organisation based in the US, reported that a 66-year-old Baha'i man, Riaz Sobhani, had been refused prison leave despite severe medical conditions.
According to the ICHRI, Sobhani "was a key member of the Baha'i Assembly in Tehran prior to its closure in 2008 when seven Baha'i community leaders were arrested and later each sentenced to 10 years in prison".
Sobhani's lawyer, Abdolfattah Soltani, has also fallen foul of the Iranian authorities and is currently being kept in Tehran's Evin prison where he has to serve a 13-year jail sentence.
The Foreign Office minister for the Middle East, Alistair Burt, on Tuesday expressed concerns about Soltani.
"Soltani appears to have been targeted because of his efforts to defend the rights of political and human rights activists in Iran," he said. "This case highlights the callous disregard shown by the Iranian Government to its citizens, and to the rule of law.
"I call on the Iranian (Islamic Republic) Government to overturn Abdolfattah Soltani's severe and unjust sentence and stop the harassment of individuals campaigning for basic human rights for Iranians."

Islamic Republic (Iran) executes three detained brothers from Ahwaz region
Monday, 18 June 2012 -- Al-Arabiya
(Islamic Republic) Iran executed on Monday three brothers from the Ahwazi Arab community who were detained in April 2011 and were later sentenced to death for allegedly killing a law enforcement official, a charge dismissed by international rights groups as false.
The Brothers –Abdul Rahman Heidari, Taha Heidari and Jamshid Heidari – were reportedly detained together with their cousin Mansour Heidari and Amir Muawi during the unrest in the Khuzestan province.
Jasem Heidari (L), Ali Heidari and Abdul Rahman Heidari (R) are three out of five who were executed after being convicted of “enmity against God.”
Ahmad Haidaran, a relative of the three brothers who currently lives in Turkey as a refugee, told Al Arabiya that his family from Ahwaz informed him of the executions.
Haidaran said he also confirmed the report in a phone call with the family of the victims and that he heard crying and sobbing in the background.
Amnesty International had urged the Iranian authorities last Monday to overturn the death sentences against the five detainees.
The right group released the statement after the prisoners were moved to an unknown location over the weekend, indicating that they are facing imminent execution.
“The men were transferred out of the general section of Karoun Prison in the south-western city of Ahvaz on Saturday, prompting concerns their death sentences may be about to be carried out,” Amnesty reported.
Death row prisoners in Iran are generally transferred to solitary confinement shortly before their executions.
Ahwazi Arabs, one of the country’s many minorities – who are mostly Shiite Muslims like the majority in Iran – live mainly in the oil-rich south-western province of Khuzestan and often complain of being “marginalized and discriminated against in access to education, employment, adequate housing, political participation and cultural rights.”
In 2005, Khuzestan was the scene of mass demonstrations to protest Iran’s government policies.
In a similar case in early May 2011, the Iranian authorities reportedly executed at least eight Ahwazi Arabs - including Hashem Hamidi, believed to be 16 years old – “for their alleged role in the deaths of a law enforcement official and two others during clashes”.
