ICRIR: Letter in Support of Mehdi Maleki, Iranian Refugee at Risk of Deportation by Sweden, from Keivan Soufastaie

Mehdi Maleki is an Iranian refugee, an anti-Islamic Republic activist, and an ex-Muslim. All three of these characteristics put him at risk of detention, torture, and execution should he be returned to Iran. And yet the Swedish government is trying to do just that: return Mehdi to the hands of the Islamic Republic, in clear contravention of international law. Read more about Mehdi’s story.

Just a few short months ago, Keivan Soufastaie was in the same situation: he is an Iranian refugee, an anti-Islamic Republic activist, and an ex-Muslim, and he was just hours away from being deported to Iran by Sweden. His deportation was halted, and Keivan now officially has asylum in Sweden. He has written a letter in support of Mehdi Maleki, which is reproduced below, in Farsi:

“با سلام نام و نام خانوادگی: کیوان سوفستایی مشخصات فردی ۱۹۷۵۰۹۱۳۰۶۳۴ کشور محل سکونت سوئد بدین وسیله اینجانب با مشخصات فوق به دلیل اینکه محمد مهدی ملک پور به شماره پناهجوی ۱۰۹۸۳۶۷۷ به عنوان یک چهره فعال در تجمعات و تظاهرات اعتراضی در چندین نوبت و مصاحبه با تلوزیون اپوزیسیون مخالف حکومت اسلامی در ایران در سطح اخبار و سایتها به همراه عکس و مشخصات کامل مطرح گردیده است و به دلیل اینکه حکومت اسلامی در ایران بدنبال حذف فعالین سیاسی در خارج از ایران تمام این فعالین را شناسایی می‌کند ،اخراج محمد مهدی ملک پور از کشور سوئد به ایران ریسک بزرگی‌ است و امنیت جانی وی به شدت در معرض خطر قرار دارد.لذا از مسئولین پروندهٔ پناهجوی وی تقاضا می‌نمائیم دیپورت و اخراج محمد مهدی ملک پور از کشور سوئد به ایران را متوقف و پروندهٔ پناهجوی وی را مورد برسی‌ مجدد قرار دهید”

We thank Keivan for supporting Mehdi, and we continue to demand that the Swedish government halt the illegal deportation proceedings against Mehdi Maleki and all other refugees that Sweden is illegally refouling.
