Citizens and civil society groups met family of Kurds executed by Iranian regime

A group of Iranian-Kurdish citizens met with the families of the four political prisoners who were executed in May by Iran.

According to reports to Radio Zamaneh, a group of Kurdish political and social activists as well as the families of political prisoners visited the home of Farzad Kamangar, Farhad Vakili and Ali Heydarian to mark the end of Ramadan and expressed their sympathies to the families for their loss.

Saltanat Rezai, mother of Farzad Kamangar, accompanied the group in visiting the homes of Ali Heydarian and Farhad Vakili in Sanandaj.

Reportedly, in Makou, people also visited the home of Shirin Alam Holi, another one of the prisoners who was hanged in May.

The four Iranian Kurds were hanged in May along with Mehdi Eslamian at Evin Prison.

They were charged with "Moharebeh" (rebellion against God) and their death sentence was carried out without prior notice to their families and attorneys.

The execution of these prisoners was followed by a province-wide strike all across Kurdistan cities.
