Last year when our organization Stop Child Executions was gaining momentum, the Islamic Republic of Iran filtered our main website www.stopchildexecutions.com to the Iranian population. This year, after our recent news update about how Iran backtracked on their word to end child executions, they ended up blocking the SCE newsblog http://scenews.blog.com . At the same time they also banned attorney Mohammad Mostafaei’s weblog in Iran http://www.mostafaei.blogfa.com/. Mr. Mostafaei is the leading attorney in Iran who concentrates on child executions. He currently represents more than 20 juveniles facing the death penalty . It is obvious that Iran is facing pressure to reform their law and put a permanent end to child executions.
Iran’s regimes’ recent lies to United Nations General Assembly, Ahmadinejad’s lie to New York times denying child executions in Iran or blocking SCE websites that simply report the facts with photos, names and details with cases numbers etc (www.stopchildexecutions.com/scedata.aspx) would not change the truth about Iran’s violation of international human and children rights conventions. If Islamic Republic wase solid on their law and not ashamed of their practices they wouldn’t feel the need to block websites that simply expose Iran’s human rights abuses.
These are various links that SCE had published before that may offer access by unblocking the filters placed by Iran’s government. If readers know of any ways to unblock filters please leave a comment
