Hebibulla Gulperipur

EAST KURDISTAN, URMIYE ─ 29 years old, Iranian Kurdish political prisoner Hebibulla Gulperipur was transferred to solitary confinement on 25th of October 2013 and he was hanged today 26th of October in Urmiye prison in East Kurdistan (Rojhelat).

Early morning of 25th of October the Kurdish political prisoner Mr Habibulla Gulparipor was transferred to Solitary confinement.

Mr Gulparipor was arrested by the intelligence service of Revolutionary Guards of Mehabad in 2009 while he was leaving Mehabad to Urmiye. Since then he has been subjected to the most cruel and inhuman degrading treatment and torture by the Islamic regime authorities in Sine, Kirmanshan and Urmiye prisons and detention centers. Then he was sentenced to death by branch one of Mehabad Revolutionary Court because of his affiliation with Free Life Party of Kurdistan (PJAK) and organizing Mothers Peace Association in Mehabad.

Since he has been in prison Mr Gulparipor went on hunger strikes twice in protest of ill treatment and psychological torture that he was subject to during the imprisonment and interrogation. In addition to that he was transferred to Semnan Central prison two years ago.

Mr Gulparipor through a published public letter which he sent out of prison in Feb 2012 explained in details the cruel and inhuman treatments he is subjected to during the interrogation period in Mehabad and Urmiya detention center. He stated “apart from being held in solitary confinement for very long time, I have spent a lot of time under cruel physical and mental torture up to death; I tried to complain to the situation and sent complain to different authorities in charge, however, in this country your voice can not go further than the jail cells, thus it cannot be heard by public.”

Although in the last 2 month some of the political prisoners were released from prison once Rouhani came to power, the Kurdish political prisoners were excluded from the amnesty. Contrary to Mr Rouhani’s election campaign slogans discriminatory policies still systematically implemented by his government and since his government came to power dozens of Kurds has been arrested.

Currently there are 30 Kurdish political prisoners on death row in regime’s prisoners and they are on eminent risk of being executed. Islamic regime considers the political prisoners as hostages therefore their fate is at the mercy of the authorities and security departments.
