NCRI – May 1, 2009 – Delara Darabi, 23, was hanged this morning, May 1, despite widespread international opposition. This has shocked all freedom loving and democratic forces around the world.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, described the execution of the young woman, who at the time of the crime attributed to her was only 17 as a sign of savagery, barbarism and misogyny of the medieval regime ruling Iran. She urged the international community to condemn this unprecedented and hideous crime.
Mrs. Rajavi added that the world community, in particular the EU and the US, are facing a big test; continue keeping silence and inaction in face of the bloodletting religious fascism ruling Iran or standing up to responsibilities that the UN Charter, conventions and international regulations have defined for them in dealing with such regimes.
Mrs. Rajavi urged all international organizations, human rights and women rights organizations to call upon the international community to confront this regime, which is a shameful stain for modern world and has no relevance to the 21st century.
