Families of 16 Baloch political prisoners who were killed during a mass execution by Iranian regime in Zahedan have strongly protested on Sunday Morning in front of the governor house.

According to "Human Rights and Democracy in Iran” a large number of residents of Zahedan along with family members of the victims gathered in front of the Governor’s office in the city of Zahedan. The protester demand from the Iranian forces to hand over the bodies of their loved one so that they can hold their funeral, pay the last respects and bury them.

It has been reported that the Police forces, Basiji forces and Mersad on motorcycles and cars have surrounded the families of the victims and they stopped the general public from joining their protest.

Sources on condition of anonymity told Balochwarna news that in most cases Iran does not hand over the bodies of the executed persons to their relatives. Usually the state forces bury them in mass graves and inform their families that their loved ones have been executed for such and such crimes.

The Imam of Zahedan central Masjid, Mawlana Abdolhamid Baloch said on Friday, that plan were being hatched to divide Iranian occupied Balochistan in three parts and word ‘BALOCHISTAN’ will not be included.

Sources reported that Iran will divide Western Balochistan in three parts and name them as Sistan, Makuran and Walayat while completely removing the word ‘BALOCHISTAN’. Mr Abdolhamid said the new revelation has created a wave of concern among Baloch scholars, academics, tribal notables, students and people from all spheres of life.

He said, “Balochistan is our national identity and it is an eternal part of history. Even word ‘SISTAN’ was added to it later. If anyone is planning to remove word ‘BALOCHSITAN’ he will be regarded as our national enemy.”

He further said even if the division of Balochistan was necessary then Khurasan is a good example – it was divided in three parts but the word ‘KHURASAN’ was preserved. He urged the interior ministry and the governor house act wisely.

The Iranian fascist regime hanged yet another four Baloch in a prison in Zahedan, the capital city of Iranian occupied Balochistan, on Saturday.

The Human Rights Activist (HARANA) has named the four latest Baloch victims of the state’s barbarism as: Gulam Reki, Parviz Mirbalochzahi, Abdulah Barahoui and Mohammad shah Norzai. They were executed on 16 February 2013.

The report further said with elections approaching, the brutal regime of Iran has accelerated the murder of Baloch prisoners under-custody.

Just two weeks ago on Wednesday on 30th January 2013, five Baloch prisoners named: Nezar Shahbakhsh son of Allahdad, Abdullah Shahbakhsh son of Asad, Nematullah Shahbakhsh son of Wali Mohamad, Abdul Rahman Shahbakhsh son of Yousef and Saleh Nutizahi were executed in the city of Kerman.

It is pertinent to mention that the Iranian regime never provides any legal attorney to the political prisoners. Their fate is decided by the kangaroo court of Iranian mullahs out of public sight. The regime also often refuses to hand over the bodies of the executed persons to their families.

Forced Confession Of Baloch Political Prisoners In Iran

Posted on 2013-01-27 ( 1330 reads )

Zahidan :

We fear their execution will happen soon, thus asking international community and human rights defenders to intervene and put pressure on the Iranian government to halt the prisoners’ execution and provide them open and fair trial with access to their own defense lawyers.

Iranian official television has broadcasted forced confession of some Baloch political Prisoners most of them were arrested in March, April and May 2012. They confess of their involvement in assassination of Mr. Mulavi Mostafa Jungozahi.

Most of the people in the region believe that Mulavi Janguzahi has been assassinated by the regime’s own security forces, in order to justify their plan for arresting Baloch activists and terrorizing people in Balochistan. Even Mulavi Mostafa Jangozahi's family members have rejected these people’s involvement in the assassination plot.

Given the regime’s fear of uprising by oppressed nationalities people against open discrimination, it is using its most fearful instrument of forceful confession and execution in the regions of oppressed nationalities. In the recent weeks the regime has convicted to death also Kurdish and Arab political prisoner in Iran. They also have been shown in TV where they have confessed their connection to foreign countries and assassinations.
