The Committee for defense of political prisoners: Abdollah and Mohammad Fathi, two brothers, were executed this morning, May 17th, in Isfahan prison after meeting their mothers for the last time. The human rights organizations and victims’ family members tried to stop, halt or postpone the execution until the last moment, but their efforts were unsuccessful. Abdollah Fathi, 29, and Mohammad Fathi, 27, had been arrested on March 2010 and transferred to Isfahan prison.
According to the family, Abdollah and Mohammad Fathi were tortured to accept the false charges against them. Judge Moghzi from branch 24 of the Revolutionary Court sentenced them to death on the charge of Moharebeh (enmity against God). Their charges include, “Enmity against God”, and “Armed robbery”, “Involvement with anti-revolutionary groups”, “Taking action for arms struggle”.
Prison officials told Abdollah and Mohammad' mother that the executions will be carried out today May 17th. The sentence was confirmed a month ago in the Supreme Court.
