The clock is ticking and an innocent man’s life is on the line.
For those who do not know, Youcef Nadarkhani faces execution for his Christian faith in Iran. If the Iranian Government follows through with this, they will be breaking the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which allows for freedom of religion. What would you do if someone you knew was in this position?
One thing you can do right now is send a simple email to the Iranian embassy to contest for Youcef Nadarkhani.
This was my email:
Your Excellency, the Ambassador of Iran,
Thank you for taking the time to read this appeal. I am writing in regards to Youcef Nadarkhani’s case. It is my hope that the Iranian judiciary would uphold the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights by releasing Youcef Nadarkhani from the current charges against him.
Ambassador, I urge you to consider this matter and to pass this appeal on to your Government.
Sincerely with the utmost respect,
