This is our Sunni brother, Hamed Ahmadi, awaiting execution, Iran.
Can you imagine his heartache? - He has a four-year old daughter who he has never met. She was born just after he was imprisoned in 2009.
Imagine his sorrow as he sits in solitary confinement, missing his beloved daughter who he has never been given the chance to see.
How must he feel, knowing that he may be executed without ever seeing his child?
How can we not cry over his situation, and the injustice he is facing! He has committed no crime, and the charges against him are baseless.
Hamed is from the city of Sanandaj, where he was a knowledgeable and righteous member of his community. He was active in spreading Sunni teachings and calling people to follow Sunni Islam, and he was particularly involved with the local Sunni mosque. It is for this reason that he caught the attention of the Iranian authorities.
He was arrested in July 2009, by officials from the Ministry of Intelligence. He was taken to an underground interrogation room, where officials tortured him severely, in an effort to extract a false 'confession'.
After unbearable physical and mental torture, and fearing for the safety of his family after they were also threatened, he was forced to sign a false confession.
He was sentenced to death in April 2011, in a case involving ten other Sunni preachers. Their court case lasted only ten minutes, and they were handcuffed, blindfolded and shackled throughout.
Six of the Sunni prisoners were executed in December 2012.
Hamed Ahmadi and four other brothers are now in solitary confinement in Ghezel Hesar prison, Karaj, where they are awaiting execution.
Their execution was scheduled for the 26th of September, 2013, but it was postponed at the last moment for a month. According to reports, the men are now at risk of imminent execution.
Hamed has endured regular torture since his arrest four years ago, and the mistreatment is continuing to this day. In a recent example, in September this year, he was tortured in Ghezel Hesar prison by guards who subjected him to electric shocks whilst he was in solitary confinement.
His condition is now rapidly deteriorating. He is suffering from injuries caused by torture and the effects of a hunger strike that the men started November 4, 2013, in protest at being transferred from their cells. There are fears the transfer is in preparation for their execution.
Prison guards viciously beat Hamed Ahmadi and the other men whilst transferring them to solitary confinement. According to reports, they are suffering from severe injuries.
Hamed Ahmadi and Jamshed Dehghani are both also suffering from internal bleeding from the stomach.
There are serious concerns for the men's health, yet they refuse to be taken to the prison infirmary, fearing abuse from the guards. On a previous occasion when they were taken to the infirmary, the guards made them return naked and demanded things that can not be said.
Fears are growing for the men, after the Ministry of Intelligence in Sanandaj informed the families that the death sentence for the six men was binding, and would be implemented soon.
