Saeed Shirzad, children rights activist must be released

Support jailed children rights activist Saeed Shirzad and demand his immediate and unconditional release from prison.

Saeed Shirzad, age 27, a children rights activist, was arrested at his workplace, Tabriz refinery, on June 2nd 2014 in Iran. After more than 14 months in prison, he was given a date for trial but his lawyer was not allowed to attend or even to access his file. He was sentenced to five years in prison.

Saeed Shirzad has been charged with ‘taking part in human rights activities and collaborating with Ahmed Shaheed, UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Iran.’

Whilst in prison, Saeed was transferred to a solitary confinement in notorious Evin prison where he was interrogated and constantly threatened to be executed. In order to exert more pressure on Saeed, prison authorities transferred him to Rajai Shahr prison where he was subjected to more physical and psychological tortures and was not allowed to have any visitors.

He was first arrested in August 2012, when he went to the city of Ahar (East Azerbaijan-Iran) to help the survivors of an earthquake. He was released on bail after 19 days. Saeed Shirzad was working as a volunteer in several NGOs in Iran including Association in Support of Children’s Rights, Children’s Home of Shoush and Society in Defence of Street Children.

Join us to demand the immediate and unconditional release of Saeed Shirzad. Send a protest letter to the following governing bodies in Iran. Please see the attached sample support letter and email addresses below.
