An Appeal to International Human Rights Lawyers By Mr.Hossein Kazemeini Boroujerdi

Evin Prison, Iran, August 2011
To the Esteemed Members of the Community of International Human Rights Lawyers,
Please accept the sincere greetings of this humble secular minded prisoner of conscience.
As you are aware, prisoners of conscience in Iran are continuously arrested and prosecuted for standing up for peace, freedom and democracy and against flagrant abuses of human rights in Iran. Consequently they are forced to appear before official courts, which spurn and reject international legal standards of behavior.
