ICBPS- Iranian Empress, Farah Pahlavi has urged the Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres to deter Tehran from continuing malicious activities.
In a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Empress Farah Pahlavi expressed concern about the fate of Ahmadreza Djalali, an Iranian-Swedish professor on death row in Evin Prison for alleged espionage charges.
In the letter, Queen Farah also expressed concern that the Islamic Republic may carry out the death sentence against the researcher.
Ahmadreza Djalali was arrested in April 2016 for alleged espionage charges and sentenced to death after a grossly unfair trial that once again exposes not only the Iranian authorities’ steadfast commitment to use of the death penalty but their utter contempt for the rule of law.
In her letter to Guterres, Empress Farah Pahlavi wrote that the same baseless charges were brought up against Iranian journalist Ruhollah Zam, who was abducted from Iraq and transferred to Iran. In December 2020, the regime hanged Zam in secret.
“The espionage charges against Ahmadreza Djalali is not acceptable in any fair and impartial civil procedure rules.”
Empress Farah Pahlavi: “You should remind the Iranian regime that the international community is aware of its sinister motives in intimidating the defenseless people of Iran,” she added. “This regime is very isolated in today’s world because it has destroyed the peace of mind of its people inside, and the reputation of our country abroad.”
In her dissertation, Empress Farah called on International organization to intervene in order to “prevent further atrocities by the Islamic regime against the people.”
