According to the reports received by the “Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran”, 10 Balochi fellow political prisoners are on the verge of execution in supreme mullah Ali Khamenei’s prisons.
General department of Intelligence Ministry (IM) and Mohammad Marziyeh, the attorney general of Zahedan have informed these prisoners’ families that they intend to make the Eid ul Adha bitter for them and have mentioned the names of at list 10 prisoners that they are planned to be executed throughout the next days.
The names of Balochi fellow political prisoners whose families have been threatened for executing their children death sentence decree are as follows:

He was exiled to Qazvin prison as of April this year and was jailed together with dangerous non-political prisoners despite his young age. He has been sentenced to death in initial trial.

He was charged with kidnapping and upon arrest, he was tied to a bed that was called “the miracle Bed” by the IM interrogators. His nails were pulled out and he was tortured by the electric shocker many times for long periods and they used different types of torture to make him confess false confessions. In the court, the plaintiff admitted that this prisoner was not among the kidnappers. This political prisoner was taken hostage for mere his family name ‘Rigi’ and just because he was a next-door neighbor to Abdolmalik Rigi. The ex-interrogator of IM which is currently the head of the Revolutionary Court, Zahedan branch has issued death sentence against him. He is now in ward 4 of Zahedan prison, waiting for his inhuman punishment of execution.

10- Shahuzehi, Abdulkhaliq; He is now waiting for execution of his death sentence.
All the Baloch patriot political prisoners in Sistan and Balochistan province are tried in branch one of Zahedan Revolutionary Court by a parson called “Maagholi”. This against humanity criminal is one of the ex-interrogators of Intelligence Ministry. He, addressing one of the Baloch fellow political prisoners who objected him for inhuman behavior, said: “I have executed about 100 people and have ordered amputation of many prisoners. Now you are objecting me! You will be regretful for your objection.” Finally he issued death sentence decree for this intent prisoner.
Most of the Baloch fellow political prisoners are arrested for mere familial relationship and are charged with false allegations, aiming at issuing execution sentence against them. Mohammad Marziyeh, the attorney general of Zahedan has told the political prisoners’ families that he will hang their captive children in case any anti-regime operation occurs in the province. He fulfilled his words and hanged three political prisoners during the past few days.
Mullah Ali Khamenei’s regime currently being on the brink of public protests, for the purpose of creating an atmosphere of fear has unbelievably intensified group execution of the political prisoners and other youngsters with different justifications. Therefore, for the purpose of clarifying the truths, we urge the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to send the UN Special Rapporteur for investigating about the false allegations attributed to the political and non-political prisoners in order to legitimate the uninterrupted wave of executions.
Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran warns about the imminent execution of 10 Baloch fellow political prisoners and requests the compatriots inside Iran and abroad to adopt widespread objection measures to halt Mullah Ali Khamenei’s machine of execution. We urge the UN Secretary General, High Commissioner for Human Rights, and UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights to refer Ali Khamenei’s case to the international courts for trial to end the against humanity deeds of Iranian regime.
