I am writing to you to demand that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as the representative of the regime of the Islamic Republic, be refused entry to the 2010 UN General Assembly meeting in New York City at the end of September.
There should be no place at the UN for a regime that stones people to death – and the campaign for Sakineh Ashtiani has demonstrated international agreement on that point. A regime that has executed thousands of political prisoners is guilty of crimes against humanity and has no right to represent Iranian people at the UN. A regime that imprisons human and child rights activists like Shiva Nazar Ahari and Behnam Ebrahimzadeh cannot represent Iranian people at the General Assembly of the United Nations.
The Islamic Republic just a few weeks ago forcibly and against her will terminated Maryam Ghorbanzadeh’s 6-month-old fetus. This was done for no other reason than to hasten Ms. Ghorbanzadeh’s execution. The Islamic Republic continues to execute those accused of crimes as juveniles, such as Mohammad-Reza Haddadi, and keeps labor leaders like Mansour Osanloo in prison without requisite medical care. The Islamic Republic, represented by Ahmadinejad, has sentenced to death by hanging at least 18 women and men only in Tabriz prison for the non-crime of homosexuality, including teenager Ebrahim Hamidi.
According to Article 6 in Chapter II of the UN Charter (http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/chapter2.shtml), a Member of the United Nations which has persistently violated the Principles contained in the present Charter may be expelled from the Organization by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council. The Islamic Republic of Iran clearly and multidimensionally meets the criteria for expulsion from the UN, and I demand that such action be taken by the UN Security Council.
The United Nations and its constituent governments must stop legitimizing this criminal regime, and start respecting the humanity of people in Iran and worldwide. Ahmadinejad, as repsresentative of an apartheidist regime that depends on stoning and execution to maintain its authority, should not be admitted to the UN General Assembly, and the unreformably criminal Islamic Republic must be expelled from the United Nations.
