Have any of the judiciary officials thought of how their failure to defend their establishment from power-hungry and short-sighted political ‘expediencies’ could result in the people’s loss of confidence and trust in the fairness and commitment to justice of this establishment? Even aside from the worrying and deeply saddening news regarding how the [execution] verdicts for Arash Rahmanipour and Mohammad Reza Alizamani were issued, it would still be an undeniable fact that the judicial procedures for these two individuals were incompatible with the usual methods.
Today, the general public understanding is that the verdicts for these two cases were issued and carried out with political goals and the current [social] environment [in mind]. Such a thing signifies that in the critical eyes of the people, the judiciary has not responded to public doubt and accusations of its [lack of] impartiality.
The Mojahedin of Islamic Revolution Organization has asked the judiciary to answer [the following questions] with clarity and transparency: When exactly were these two people apprehended? What documents, evidence and tools have been acquired from them? What were their goals and what did they do to achieve them? Why have their trials been held along with those of the other recently-detained individuals? Why was there such a rush to carry out the verdict? Why has the judiciary been silent regarding the propaganda seen on national television, which stresses the relationship of these executions to those detained during Ashura? Why…
Needless to say, as long as there are no clear responses to questions like these, the judiciary branch cannot hope for a more positive public opinion regarding what they do.
The Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization expresses its deep sorrow regarding the fact that judicial procedures were not followed for these two cases. Furthermore, this organization condemns the approval and rushed execution of the verdict, and asks that the judiciary issues a responseregarding the ambiguities that surround these two cases as soon as possible.
