HARANA : Tehran, 1th November 2010-- In a message released today, Ayatollah Boroujerdi warned, “Now that Iran’s theocratic leaders have lost all domestic and international credibility, they have devised plots to execute prisoners in every possible way.

Ayatollah Boroujerdi ended his message with a plea to the international community. He stated, "I of the notorious Evin prison, along with a plethora of oppressed Iranians who oppose theocracy and vie to establish peaceful relations with the world thank President Barack Obama, Mrs. Hillary Clinton, Senator John McCain and those European officials who monitor human rights violations in Iran and urge all influential world leaders to protect freedom and human rights as a top priority in their international endeavours and obligations irrespective of commercial and political considerations."
