Iranians hopeful — and fearful — for new year as Nowruz celebration nears

TEHRAN — The Iranian new year arrives with the first moment of spring on Wednesday afternoon, and many here say they are happy to close the book on the past 12 months.

This year — 1391 on the Persian calendar that Iran uses — was by many accounts the most financially difficult for Iranians since the 1979 inception of the Islamic Republic. Western-led sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program have damaged the country’s economy and contributed to a massive currency dive that has dented the purchasing power of ordinary people.

Saudi-Arabia: ANHRI Denounces the Persistence of the Restrictions by the Saudi-Regime against the Families of the Detainees and the Imprisoning of an Egyptian Citizen on the background with his Solidarity with the Female Demonstrators

Cairo March 19, 2013

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI), denounces the sentence issued by a Saudi court against an Egyptian citizen who lives in Saudi-Arabia due to his solidarity with some women during their protest in front of “Bridah’s prison” in addition to the arrest of several detainees without legal justification and the persistence of the restrictions by the regime on the families of the detainees.

The penal court of Riadyh on Sunday March 17, 2013, issued a sentence of imprisoning the Egyptian citizen who lives in Saudi-Arabia (Abduallah Ali El-Samari) for three months on the background of being in solidarity with the female protesters in front of “El-Tarfeehah” in the district of “Bredah” to demand the release of their relatives who are arrested without charges or legal justification, despite he doesn’t have any relations with the detainees in addition to the exchange of the news that he was forced to write a research of 60 pages on criminalizing the demonstration as a condition to his release.

The court in the hearing released 11 detainees on the background of their solidarity with the female protesters who participated in Bredah protest but the court only penalized the Egyptian citizen who is in solidarity with them; as the Saudi-Arabia authorities have arrested hundreds of women, children and men recently, but they were all released, in exception with suspending the sentence against three women and the Egyptian citizen who was sentenced by three months. “Ali El-Sherimi”, “Osama El-Faheed”, “Deham El-Sergani”, Mai El-Talek”, “Reem El-Mokbel”, “Amina El-Rashed” and “Reemah El-Haresh”, who was transferred to the hospital of the prison of “El-Haer” due to the health deterioration as a result of being on hunger strike for 18 days, languished in the prison arbitrary and without legal justification.

In the context of the violations committed by the regime against the families of the detainees, the authorities established a campaign of harassments against whoever attempted to provide any assistance to the sons of the female detainees “Reemah El-Haresh” the wife of the detained “Mohamed El-Hamli”, as the age of their children didn’t exceed 15 years. The security forces surrounded the house and chase whoever attempting to help them and it did reach to arrest three persons due to providing assistance to them, according to activists’ posts via twitter.

In the context of the trials and prosecutions to the activists and rights’ advocates, the penal court in “Jedah” adjourned in the hearing held on Monday March 18, 2013, the case of the activist and the lawyer “Waleed Abu-Elkhair” for April 2013, to verify the evidences submitted by the public prosecutor which are (Statement of Jedah Detainees, Qatif events, his interview with Rotana Khalijiah, and some number of writings in the internent). Abu-Elkhari faces several charges represented in “insulting the judiciary”, “communication with a foreign entities”, “demanding constitutional kingdom”, “involving in the media to distort the reputation of the country” and “inciting the public opinion against the regime in the state”.

ANHRI said that “the sentences issued against the Egyptian citizen for three months due to his solidarity with the several female protesters and forcing him to write a research on criminalizing the demonstration as a condition to release him, are a clear violation all the international treaties and charters, as the sentence reflects the authorities arbitrariness with the Egyptian citizen in addition to forcing him to write a research on criminalizing the demonstrations is a violation to the right of the citizen to belief whatever they desire and a clear violation to his simple rights in expressing the opinion whether by saying or writing”.

ANHRI added that “the persistence of the regime to harass the families of the detainees and arresting number of them in the prisons without legal justification in addition to surrounding the family of one of the females detainees without legal justification to ban any assistance to reach her children, is a clear violation by the regime to all the international treaties and charters, the matter that requires a crucial intervention from the states that say that they support democracy and freedoms while such countries ignore the violations of the regime against the citizens in the light of the economic relations of such states with the regime.

ANHRI demands the immediate release of all the detainees without legal justification, immediate release of the Egyptian citizen and drop all the charges pressed on him.
