To medlemmer af den iranske forfatterforening er blevet arresteret i Iran.

PEN’s International’s Writers in Prison Commitee (WiPC) protesterer mod de ét år lange fængselsstraffe til to iranske skribenter, som er medlemmer af IWA – The Iranian Writers Associaion. 

De to anholdte er oversætter og kvinderettighedsforkæmper Manijeh Najm Eraghi … 

 


og økonom og skribent Fabrorz Raiz Dana

De blev anholdt hhv. 3. juni og 21. maj i år. 

 

PEN vurderer at begge anholdelser er i strid med § 19 i “International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights”, som Iran er medunderskriver af, og forlanger at de omgående løslades.

 

Den aktuelle sag drejer sig om de to medlemmer af IWA, som med få måneders mellemrum for nylig er blevet arresteret og idømt hver ét års fængsel uden anden begrundelse end at være medlemmer af IWA…!

Manijeh Najm Eraghi er ekspert i oversættelser fra engelsk til farsi, hun er skrivende og fredelig aktiv i kvinderettighedssager i sit hjemland. Hun har tidligere været arresteret i Iran i 2010 og blev løsladt mod kaution efter få dage. Hun blev igen arresteret d. 3. juni i år og er nu idømt et års fængsel.

Fabrorz Raiz Dana er uddannet økonom og også medlem af IWA.

Han har også tidligere været arrestret i 2010 for at have udtalt sig kritisk til udenlandske medier om præsident Ahmadinejad’s økonomiske politik i Iran. Raiz Dana blev tilbageholdt i en måned, før han blev løsladt mod kaution – men blev senere idømt ét års fængsel for at være medlem af IWA og for at have ytret sig kritisk på BBC og Voice of America om forholdene omkring islamisk retspraksis. Han er også nu siget for at være medlem af IWA.

Det lader ikke til, at IWA (The Iranian Writers Association) respekteres af det iranske styre. Foreningen har kæmpet i næsten fire årtier for iranske skribenters rettigheder for ytringsfrihed – uden held, ser det ud til.

Dr. Raisdanaer er en anerkendt intellektuel reformist, og kendt for sin åbenlyse kritik af det iranske styres økonomiske- og sociale politik har i flere år været udsat for sikkerhedspolitiets chikaner og trusler. Raisdanaer har skrevet adsillige børe om emnerne, og du kan se et interview med ham her.

Hjælp meget gerne med at protestere overfor de iranske myndigheder (se anvisning nedenfor).
