Rejection of Iran’s call for compromise by Ayatollah Borojerdi

According to the news received; today March 25, 2009 Mr. Boroujerdi was permitted to call his family. The reports say; a governmental clergyman, who his identity has not been revealed yet, has visited him in Yazd prison during last days and has confessed that every kind of our( government) control on you has had no results as yet and all government’s acts against you such as: denial of phone call and visitation couldn’t prevent from disseminating your messages and news from prison on satellites’ channels and sites, so the government is ready to make compromise with you!
Ayatollah Boroujerdi has said in reply that:” since my case is not individual so, I don’t accept to make compromise at all. I have some demands like: necessity of freedom of press, speech and religion and removing every kind of discrimination in society so, high-rank officials should negotiate with me on these important subjects. Now that I am supported by people, Human Rights defenders and News agencies, I call defense of God-given freedoms of the nation as my duty.”
It is necessary to say that Ayatollah Boroujerdi has been deprived of access to hot water, electricity, proper food and also treatment services since last week. Considering that suspicious death of political and opinion prisoners during last days is a common deed for the government so, immediate intervention of Human Rights Organizations to save Ayatollah Boroujerdi’s life is necessary.
Also this prisoner leader is suffering from severe diseases by now, and asks for visiting a representative from the United Nations Organization.
