Dear Dr. Pillay,

We, the undersigned, hereby are making a plea for your assistance in saving the life of one of an innocent, Mr. Saeed Malekpour, whose life is in imminent danger in Iran.

As you are probably aware, Mr. Malekpour (a Canadian resident) was detained on October 2008, by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence service on charges of cybercrime while he was travelling in Iran to visit his family, and was subsequently sentenced to death. These accusations, nevertheless, have been strongly rejected by Mr. Malekpour, and most of the evidence against him used in the court has been based on forced testimony extracted through torture and severe pressure.

Furthermore, the court was held behind closed doors, and the court rejected repeated requests by the accused and his lawyers to call upon a cyber expert to testify. His death sentence has now been upheld, and it can be carried out at any moment now.

The only request of the accused and his lawyers to the judiciary branch of the Islamic Republic of Iran is to lift the death sentence and to hold another trial, this time a just and public one, with expert testimony from cyber crime experts. This request has so far remained unanswered by the judiciary officials in Iran.

We therefore respectfully ask you to, as the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, please follow up on Mr. Malekpour’s case and request that the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran lift the death sentence and hold a public and fair trial, one in line with the international obligations of the country and the requirements of the International Declaration of Human Rights.

We also would like to express our deepest gratitude for your cooperation on this humanitarian issue.

Sincerely yours,
