We at Mission Free Iran/ICRIR have received confirmation that The European Court of Human Rights has received the official complaint that was lodged on behalf of the case of Iranian asylum seeker in Cyprus Mr Hadi Jahednorouzi’s refugee case (ARC: 5395940) 

The wheelchair bound anti Iranian Regime activist seeking Refugee status in Cyprus, who is on the verge of imminent and illegal deportation by the government of Cyprus today. 

‘By international definition a refugee is a person who has been forced to leave their home and seek refuge elsewhere. Under the United Nations Convention relating to the status of refugees of 1951, a refugee is more narrowly defined (in Article 1A) as a person who “owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country”. The concept of a refugee was expanded by the Convention’s 1967 Protocol and by regional conventions in Africa and Latin America to include persons who had fled war or other violence in their home country.’
As such, the planned deportation of Hadi Jahednorouzis refugee case (ARC: 5395940) By the Cypriot government is a criminal act against a vulnerable individual whose life is at mortal risk if he is forcibly returned to Iran. Mr Hadi Jahednorouzi (ARC: 5395940) Is the Iranian asylum seeker who has already been arrested on 3 sperate occasions by the Islamic Republic of Irans government in connection to his anti-regime political actions. On his escape from Iran after fleeing in fear of his life, Mr Jahednorouzi has been visibly active as an Anti IRI activist. The anti IRI activities of Asylum seeking individuals such as Mr Jahednorouzi are heavily monitored by the Iranian government, as is a well know published fact [1]. And as such [2] Mr Jahednorouzis return to Iran by the Government of Cyprus will facilitate Mr Jahednorouzis imprisonment, possible torture and almost inevitably his eventual death at the hands of the Iranian Regime. 
Mr Jahednorouzi’s lawyer has stated that there are crucial pieces of documented evidence, which were not acknowledged or taken into account in Mr Jahednorouzi’s application for asylum. 

The world is watching Mr Jahednorouzi’s illegal deportation case very closely, especially as Cyprus has been involved in very recent deportations of Iranian asylum seekers that were both illegal and deeply disturbing from the point of view of basic human rights and safely. Eliza Savvidou Commissioner for Administration (Ombudsman) has also recently issued a response of acknowledgement to concerned citizens of the world, in regard to the terrible abuses that have been proven to of taken place recently for Iranian asylum seekers at the hands of police in Larnaca.

[2] Rahim Rostami’s case (deported from Norway to detention in Evin Prison in Iran as a political prisoner) demonstrates that the regime is prosecuting returned political asylum-seekers on the basis of Article 7 of the Islamic Penal Code. From 19 June 2011: “According to sources Iran Human Rights (IHR) has been in contact with, Rahim Rostami has been charged with “Contact with alien countries and propaganda against the nation’s security.”” “Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, the spokesperson of IHR said: The new charges against him are due to his participation in anti-government (Iranian) rallies while he was in Norway. This is evidence that the Iranian authorities monitor activities of the Iranians abroad and use it against them upon their return.http://iranhr.net/spip.php?article2138
