Honorable Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani ,the head of judiciary branch of Islamic Republic of Iran
with regards and wishing you a happy new year, I am the mother of Abolfazl Abedini, the journalist of our precious Iran,being witness to his confinement with his poor health and questionable physical and emotional condition, was the greatest gift that I received for the new year during these days.
As of 5 years ago this emaciated young man has been arrested, imprisoned, tortured,put in the solitary confinement, and posted heavy bail amount for his freedom with the help of compassionate individuals.
He was never found guilty in any of the court hearing and he was cleared of all charges.
For what crime does he deserve to be tortured? For the crime of defending the rights of the laborers of Haft Tapeh factory and for defending the Drivers union and other guild and unions? Or for expressing the problem that exist in our country?
I want you, the supreme judge, with all fairness in presence of the God,the Creator, pay exceptional attention to my 28 years old child who suffers from severe heart problem as a result of the his captivity the past five years, and resolve the abeyance state that he is in.
I want to advise you that if any thing happens to him, you are going to be responsible before God the merciful .
In addition I should mention that he is in the solitary confinement,in Sepah Pasdaran prison, joint 2 at Evin with the denied rights to retain or communicate with an counsel. It has been a month that Abolfazl is being interrogated.
