Trump's Great Iranian Opportunity

The great Ayatollah Hossein Boroujerdi is briefly out of prison, where he had been held in miserable conditions for a decade. He is one of those dissidents who are so beloved by the Iranian people that the murderous regime of Ali Khamenei does not dare to put them to death, or even on trial.  They torture them instead, hoping that they will die of “natural causes.”

International Day of Human Rights

Greeting to all
I am Maryam from Iran. I was a lecturer in university and I was teaching in Chemistry.
However, I had been arrested and jailed because of my beliefs.
I was advocating separation of religion from politics, because I believed that secularism is a way for people to enjoy their human rights.

Amnesty International Highly Concerned about the Situation of Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi

Iran’s criminal justice system is notorious for imprisoning people merely for peacefully exercising their human rights. However, the legal framework relating to the rights of prisoners guarantees, in theory that they should at least benefit from adequate medical care. Iran’s prison regulations require the prison administration to provide prisoners with regular medical check-ups, and ensure that their medical needs are addressed. They also provide that prisoners may be granted medical leave or transferred to treatment centres outside prison when the care they need is not available in prison. Iran’s Code of Criminal Procedure further authorizes judges to postpone the implementation of a prison sentence when imprisonment would exacerbate the illness of the prisoner, or to issue an alternative sentence if the individual is deemed too ill to serve.
