Sanctions are necessary - Iranian leadership must allow election anniversary protests
On the occasion of the UN Security Council's vote on sanctions against Iran and the first anniversary of the protests against electoral fraud during the Iranian presidential elections of 12 June 2009, Barbara Lochbihler (Greens/EFA, DE), Chair of the European Parliament delegation for relations with Iran, made the statement below.
"Mock executions, torture, rape, death sentences - the record points to a terrible human rights situation. Since June 2009, when hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated in Tehran, the Basij militia and other security forces have been harshly cracking down on all opposition forces.

In memory of the creator who forbade oppression and ordered kindness. Thanks to a religion that did not permit tyranny and condemned dictatorship.
Lord: now that our people are burned in the injustice of the state religion […] I am prepared for a red death and will reveal the crimes of a political Islam through my death.
Lord: long years of torment of this government have led to the collapse of my organs and destruction of my life. I do not forget the moment when one of the leaders in Palestine was released from an Israeli prison after a long time and we saw him on television: fit, healthy and cheery; contradicting all negative propaganda in the ruling media about the prisons in Israel. Comparing this with my own situation as an independent religious leader shows a horrific reality.

In recent days, prisoners of conscience and various political prisoners have been placed under tremendous pressures. One of the prison agents reports that several night ago Mr. Kazemeini-Boroujerdi was secretly poisoned prior to sleeping, late at night.
At present Mr. Boroujerdi’s physical condition has deteriorated and his legs have swollen. He also suffers from serious joint and musculoskeletal pain, which has prevented him from moving around. Despite all this the authorities have refused to provide Mr. Boroujerdi with the prescribed the pain medication.
