May 14th: the International Day of Protest to save Ahmad Reza Jalali’s life

We will turn his execution plot into a great scandal for the Islamic regime!

The Iranian state-run ISNA news agency quoted “informed sources” as saying that Ahmad Reza Jalali, a dual national researcher, would be executed by the end of Iranian Ordibehesht month, (ca 20th May).

Ahmad Reza Jalali, an Iranian-Swedish researcher, has been held hostage by the Islamic government since 2016, six years ago, and has been sentenced to death since 2017, which has been approved by the Supreme Court of the Islamic regime. He has repeatedly denied the allegations against himself, saying he was forced to confess under physical and psychological tortures. He is innocent and should be released immediately.

For the Islamic regime, the hostage-taking of Ahmad Reza Jalali and other dual-nationals is a means of ransom -taking and extortion in the international level. Now, at the end of Hamid Nouri’s trial in Stockholm and Prosecutor’s request for life imprisonment for his participation in the murder of a large number of political prisoners in 1988 in Iran, the Islamic regime has set a deadline for the execution of Ahmad Reza Jalali.

The world should not allow the Islamic Republic to execute Ahmad Reza Jalali. According to the Islamic regime, dual-national prisoners are assets that can be used in business or as leverage in foreign policy. This behavior is highly inhumane and disgusting and should be strongly condemned as extortion.

We declare May 14th as the International Day in Support of Ahmad Reza Jalali in order to save him of execution. On this day, we call on everyone to support Ahmad Reza Jalali and his family by holding a protest rally in anywhere around the world, and demand his unconditional release. At the same time, we call on the Swedish government and other Western governments to strongly protest the Islamic regime’s plot to execute Ahmad Reza Jalali.

The Islamic regime must come under international pressure and be isolated to stop the execution of Ahmad Reza Jalali, and release him from prison. We will spare no effort to overturn the death sentence of Ahmad Reza Jalali and release him.
