ICRIR: URGENT: Contact Swedish Migration Office and Swedish Embassies & Consulates to Stop Deportation of Sanan Ashrafi to Execution in Iran

Iranian opposition activist Sanan Ashrafi will be detained, tortured, and probably executed if returned to Iran. It is urgent that this deportation be halted. Your urgent assistance is required to do so – the Swedish government has already issued his plane tickets for Friday, 1 July 2011.

Facts of the case (derived from legal statement): Use these points when talking with Swedish government staff:
– Sanan was a political activist against the regime while he was living in Kurdistan, Iran. Anti-regime activists are usually charged with propagating against the regime and moharebeh, which carries the death sentence in Iran.
– As a result of organizing a protest demonstration against the regime’s execution by torture of a young boy, Shoana Ghader, Sanan was himself brutally tortured in one of the Islamic Republic’s torture houses for 6 months, during which time he was interrogated under intense pressure 26 times, and tortured in the form of beatings against all parts of his body and kicks to his stomach and genitals. He was hung from his arms above his head. He received blows to his kidneys, and the Islamic Republic authorities hung weights from his testicles.
– Sanan was and remains an active member of the Worker-communist Party of Iran – Hekmatist, which is an organization the members of which the Islamic Republic has marked for eradication.
– Sanan is a person born into a Muslim family who has left Islam to become an atheist; this is called “apostasy” and it is an act that carries the death sentence in Iran.
– It is illegal under international law for any country including Sweden to deport a person who has a legitimate fear of persecution in their home country.
– It is undeniably illegal for Sweden to deport Sanan Ashrafi to Iran, where he will be detained, tortured, and probably executed if he is returned to the blood-soaked hands of the Islamic Republic.

This is a two-step call-in action: Sanan urgently needs you to:

1) Call the Swedish Immigration Board at +46-771-235-235 from 8:30am-4pm CET to demand a halt to Sanan Ashrafi’s deportation. You will need to have in hand his case number, which is #11220571.

2) Call and fax the Swedish Embassies and/or consulate offices in your country to demand a halt to the deportation of Sanan Ashrafi – don’t forget to include his case number: #11220571.
