stand up to the bloodthirsty dictators, in the guise of holy men

Greeting to all you who are in attendance, Ladies and Gentlemen,

 My name is Majid Mohseni and I am the voice of a prisoner of conscience, who has written to you who strive for human rights, from within Evin Prison. Mr. Seyyed Hossein Kazemeini-Boroujerdi has been in prison for seven year continuously.
Based on available information, the intensity of the pressure on Mr. Kazemeini-Boroujerdi has increased, in such a way that the Special Clerical Court prosecutor, only known as Haji Ghadiani, visited him personally in his cell and demanded his silence and cooperation with the regime. Mr. Boroujerdi who refused was then faced with a storm of invective and threat of death from said prosecutor. During the past seven years of his incarceration, Mr. Boroujerdi has been deprived of legal representation and has in fact not only been prohibited from medical furlough where he can receive the much needed and proper medical treatment.

Letter Mr. Kazemeini-Boroujerdi to 67th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations

Your Excellency, Secretary General of the United Nations, Ladies and Gentlemen, heads of states and nations participating in the 67th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations,
 Please accept the greetings of this humble imprisoned cleric, who writes to convey himself to you from within a prison cell which is surrounded by a cruelty and brutality called religion and faith. It is many years that the hands of the claimants of Islam have captured me and held me hostage. They have wasted my youth, my life and health, and now, as you come together for this global event, in order to inform each other of the hidden pains and concerns of each others communities, it is apt that you should focus on the ills that invade the contemporary world and the abused rights of the innocent and helpless.

Kazemeini-Boroujerdi’s wife interrogated at Special Clerical Court

Based on reports from the Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran website, on Monday, September 9th, Ms. Akram Vali-Doosti, wife of Mr. Kazemeini-Boroujerdi was summoned to the Special Clerical Court where she spent many hours under interrogation and psychological pressure.

The motivation behind such viciousness against Mr. Boroujerdi’s family is to specifically put pressure on Mr. Boroujerdi, who as a freedom-loving cleric has spent the last seven years in the most inhumane and medieval conditions in prison.

Kazemeini-Boroujerdi’s statement to the Minister of Intelligence: “You will not succeed in making reforms”

Translated and edited by: Banafsheh zand
Attention Notable Minister of Intelligence,

I offer you the greetings of all innocent prisoners.

I considered writing you a personal letter but I realized that over my years of imprisonment, the personal letters that I wrote to the authorities of the regime was fodder for them to further persecute me. Hence I have chosen to write you in an open forum, where my words can be registered on the pages of Iranian contemporary history, and for it to be observed by many, in years to come.
