Iran: Political prisoner’s Ali Saremi message after the confirmation of his death sentence

Following the confirmation of his death sentence by the Iranian regime, political prisoner Ali Saremi has sent out a uncompromising and courageous message from inside prison.

Mr. Saremi is the father of a resident of Camp Ashraf, Iraq, where 3.400 members of the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) reside.

The translated message is as follows:

In the name of God

I have read once more in newspapers that the [regime’s] prosecutor has said that the death sentences of six PMOI supporters have been confirmed and will soon be implemented. The prosecutor must be asked: Have you really given this nation anything other than death, poverty, terror and batons over the past thirty one years that you have been in power?

Looking back at the events of the past 31 years, one would realize that the execution of us six is not a novel and astonishing tale! This is the only thing that you are capable of doing. Have you dreadful reactionaries brought anything for the Iranian people other than death?

While you continue to subject this nation to humiliation, death, gloom and illusions, beware that the day of the people’s retribution is near. You are showered each night and day with the people’s hatred and abhorrence. Don’t think for a moment that people are ignorant and would forget the batons, chains, knives, Kahrizak [death camp], the persistent murders, plainclothes agents and thugs who rain down on people with batons.

On Judgment Day, you will be standing beside the pharaohs, Nero, Genghis Khan, and others who have betrayed nations throughout history. It will not be long. Where will you so-called prosecutors who justify baseless sentences handed down by your so-called courts find a place among humans and Muslims?

“This nation will not join hands with tyrants. You have made life intolerable for people by creating plenty of empty dinner tables, abandoned children, drug addiction, and jealousy. How dare you continue to rule, talk and make promises? Are you not mortified? Shame on all of you.

Ali Saremi
