ROME, February 12 – An urgent meeting with Abolfazl Zohrevand, the Iranian Ambassador to Italy to discuss the case of the two young men sentenced to death in Iran for being homosexual. This is the request EveryOne Group has forwarded in a letter to the Iranian diplomat. An initiative shared by the Nonviolent Radical Party, Transnational and Transparty together with the Nessuno Tocchi Caino (Hands off Cain) association.
In a note by the Radicals we read, “the international mobilization to save the lives of the two boys sentenced to death in Iran for being homosexual continues. In just a few days over 12,500 people have signed the petition (www.petitiononline.com/irangay) addressed to the Iranian authorities in an attempt to save the lives of Hamzeh Chavi and Loghman Hamzehpour. The two boys, aged 18 and 19, were arrested at Sardasht, in Iranian Azerbaijan, last January 23rd, and accused of “mohareb” (being enemies of Allah) and “lavat” (sodomy). After confessing, under torture, to being in love, the boys now risk capital punishment.

The Nonviolent Radical Party, Transnational and Transparty, along with Nessuno Tocchi Cainom, has subscribed to the initiative begun by EveryOne who have sent a letter to Abolfazi Zohrevand, the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Italy, requesting an urgent meeting to discuss the case of the two young man, a case that has caused an outcry throughout the world and serious preoccupation about the violation of human rights taking place in the country.”
