Amnesty International appeal to Iran to commute death sentences

Amnesty International has issued an urgent action to stop the execution of ten Ahwazi Arabs wrongly accused of insurgency.

It urges human rights activists to write to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei (info@leader.ir or istiftaa@wilayah.org) and Head of the Judiciary Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi (info@iranjudiciary.com) to:
* express grave concern that the nine men (naming them) may be in imminent danger of execution
* urge the Iranian authorities to commute their death sentences immediately
* ask for details of the men's trial proceedings, including the specific charges against them, whether they have been granted access to independent lawyers of their choice, and of any appeals they may have made against their sentences
