I am writing to share with you my profound concerns about the continuing, serious and flagrant human rights violations of my compatriots by the clerical regime in Iran, especially political and ideological prisoners, and respectfully request you adopt urgent and appropriate measures to put an immediate end to such violations.
I also would like to draw your kind attention to the critical condition of a prisoner by the name of Behnam Ebrahimzadeh. Attached you may kindly find a letter written by his wife Mrs. Zobeideh Hajizadeh explaining his situation and their concern for his safety and serious health condition.
