Reliable news sources report that Mr. Ahmad-Reza Jalali’s death sentence has been upheld by the Iranian supreme court. Mr. Jalali’s family and his lawyer have vehemently protested the ruling and have asked all the international human rights organizations to do their utmost to prevent the execution.
Mr. Jalali who is a permanent resident of Sweden worked as a research associate at the university of Karolinski in Stockholm. Early last year, at the invitation of University of Tehran, Mr. Jalali travelled to Iran and subsequently was arrested on April 26th and was deceptively charged with spying for hostile governments.
The Coalition for Democracy and Human Rights in Iran demands the immediate release of Mr. Ahmad-Reza Jalali and pleas with the international human rights organizations and the freedom loving people to do their utmost to save his life.
The Human Rights Watch Organization and Amnesty International Organization have issued demands for the immediate release of Mr. Jalali.
