Iran

In mid 2010, we joined with others to help save from execution Ebrahim Hamidi, an Iranian teenager falsely accused of homosexual assault and later to stop the hanging of an Iranian Kurdish activist, Habibollah Latifi, who had been scheduled to be executed on 26 December 2010 after an unfair trial.

We have been very effective in drawing world attention to the persecution suffered by Iran’s Sunni Muslims, trade unionists, women, students, gay people, human rights defenders and journalists, and by its Arab, Baluch, Azeri and Kurdish ethnic minorities.
