Ehsan Fattahian was Hanged Early This Morning

Iran Human Rights, November 11: According to reliable sources in Iran, the Kurdish political prisoner Ehsan Fattahian was hanged in Sanandaj today.

The numerous campaigns by the local and international human rights groups to stop his execution did not give any result. He was executed in the prison of Sanandaj this morning.

Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, the spokesperson of Iran Human Rights said "Our thoughts go to Ehsan’s family and friends and all those who are struggling for abolition of death penalty worldwide. We condemn strongly Ehsan’s execution. Iranian leaders must know that hanging and torture will not solve their regime’s massive problems, and they will eventually be held responsible for their acts".
