Salutation: Dear Mr Raisi
Please note that the best way to reach the head of the judiciary is to address a letter to him and send it via Iran’s diplomatic mission in Geneva and/or its diplomatic mission in your country because we do not have an email address and it is very difficult to reach Iran via post.
Also send copies to diplomatic representatives accredited to your country.
Please check with your section before sending appeals after the above date.
