Ahmadreza Djalali has been imprisoned in Iran since April 2016. Last month, Iran ordered for his imminent execution.

Ahmadreza was on a business trip in Iran when he was arrested. He was held in solitary confinement, tortured and ordered to ‘confess’ to being a spy.

His treatment in prison has been sickening and the order for his imminent execution is shocking.

Email the Iranian authorities to immediately halt his execution and help save Ahmadreza’s life.

Help save Swedish-Iranian doctor from imminent execution

What's happening?

Ahmadreza Djalali, a Swedish-Iranian medical doctor and academic, was on a business trip to Iran when he was arrested on 26 April 2016. He is being held in the notorious Evin prison.

For three months he was placed in solitary confinement with no access to a lawyer. He was subjected to torture in order to force him to ‘confess’ to being a spy.

His interrogators threatened to kill or harm him and his children. He said he was made to read out “confessions” pre-written by his interrogators in front of a video camera. These were then played on Iranian TV which presented him as a spy.

On 1st December 2020, in a two minute phone call to his wife in Sweden, he told her that he was being transferred to another prison for his execution to be carried out.

We have since received information that “an order from higher up” meant his execution has been delayed by one month.

We must act now - and fast. 

We’re urgently calling on Iran to immediately halt Ahmadreza’s execution. His conviction and sentence should be quashed and he should be released.

Email the Iranian authorities now to help save Ahmadreza - there’s no time to waste.
