Association of Iranian Political Prisoners(in Exile) is concerned that Esameel Mohammadi(m), aged 38, married, having five children, faces imminent execution, after he was sentenecd to death by Branch 1 of the Islamic "Revolutionary" Court in Oromieh city

Esameel Mohammadi, allegedly an activist and supporter of the Komala organisation, a kurdish armed political group opposing the Islamic regime of Iran, arrested in Bokan city in northwest of Iran, in the beginning of 2002.

Branch 1 of the Islamic "Revolutionary" Court, located in Oromieh, sentenced him to death on various charges, including "armed struggle agianst the Islamic regime", "membership of a proscribed organisdation" and other security provisions.
He is currently being held in Oromieh prison.

We urge national and international organisations defending human rights, Amnesty International in particular, to put the islamic regime of Iran under pressure in order to stop the execution of the above-named political prisoner.
