Brave Iranian human rights lawyer Amirsalar Davoudi is unlikely to still be alive at the end if he is subjected to 111 lashes
And the Democrats side with these monsters in Iran against America, freedom and humanity.
30 YEARS IN PRISON AND 111 LASHES FOR IRANIAN HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCATE
Iranian human rights lawyer Amirsalar Davoudi has been sentenced to 30 years in prison and 111 lashes for his human rights work, which includes publicizing human rights cases on the Telegram mobile messaging app and giving media interviews.
By Tom Gross, June 2019:
Amnesty International said in a statement:
“Amirsalar Davoudi is the latest victim of a vicious crackdown waged by the Iranian authorities against human rights lawyers over the past two years, which has seen Iranian courts hand out increasingly harsh sentences to stop them from being able to carry out their work.”
“On 1 June 2019… he was convicted by Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran on multiple charges and sentenced to 30 years in prison and 111 lashes. The punishment of flogging violates the prohibition on torture and other ill-treatment under international law.
“The charges on which he has been convicted include ‘insulting the Supreme Leader’… Amirsalar Davoudi is well known for representing human rights activists and other individuals detained for their social and political activities…
“Another lawyer, Mohammad Najafi, was sentenced to a total of 17 years in prison and 74 lashes in three separate cases. Other lawyers who have either been arrested or have faced prosecution since January 2018 include Arash Keykhosravi, Ghassem Sholeh-Sa’di, Farokh Forouzan, Mostafa Daneshjoo, Mostafa Tork Hamadani, Payam Derafshan and Zeynab Taheri…”
Tom Gross adds: As opponents of the widely-criticized “appeasement” deal with the Iranian regime crafted by Barack Obama, John Kerry and the EU have repeatedly pointed out, the deal has (as predicted) emboldened the Iranian regime and encouraged it to greatly increase repression both at home and abroad, particularly in Syria.
