Sheikh Kaveh Vaisi and Barzan Nasrollah Zadeh, awaiting execution, Iran
Barzan Nasrollah Zadeh (right), was born in 1993. He was arrested when he was 17-years old, on May 29, 2010, on his way home from school.
He was shot twice in the abdomen by Intelligence agents. Due to the lack of medical care he received, he lost his entire spleen.
He was severely tortured despite his injuries, and due to his young age was also forced to watch the torture of other detainees.
Shaykh Kaveh Vaisi, (left) was born on September 16, 1984. He is highly educated and respected, and is renowned for his wisdom and good manners.
He began learning Islam from an early age, and spent his life in learning and teaching. Even after his arrest on June 11, 2009, despite harsh conditions in prison, he continued to teach wherever possible.
Both men were tortured physically and psychologically in pre-trial detention, and were sentenced to death under charges such as 'Moharabeh' (enmity against God).
Numerous Sunni preachers and activists, especially those who criticize the Iranian Shia-led regime, are imprisoned and even executed under the pretext of being 'enemies of God'.
