Amnesty International's recommended action

Please send appeals to arrive as quickly as possible, in Persian, Kurdish, English and French or your own language :

• expressing concern that Adnan Hassanpour and Abdolwahed (Hiwa) Butimar have been sentenced to death;
• urging the authorities to commute these death sentences immediately ;
• acknowledging that governments have a responsibility to bring to justice those suspected of criminal offences, but stating your unconditional opposition to the death penalty, as the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment and violation of the right to life ;
• asking for full details of the charges and evidence against Adnan Hassanpour and Abdolwahed (Hiwa) Butimar and expressing concern that their trial may not have met international standards for fair trial, which are especially important in capital cases ;
• calling on the authorities to ensure that neither is tortured or ill-treated ;
• calling for Adnan Hassanpour and Hiwa Butimar to be allowed immediate and regular access to their families, lawyers of their own choosing and any medical treatment they may require.
