"Since the 2009 protest the human rights situation in Iran has gotten even worse than before the election- Moghaddam continued - Iranian authorities have lost their legitimacy and their power is now based mostly on threat. To spread terror among people the instrument they use is dead penalty. In 2012 676 people have been killed".
The Iranian government is also using death penalty against websites creators and software developers as a threat against the use of the internet.
"We all remember the importance of internet and social media in organizing the 2009 protests and in telling the world what was happening within Iran. Each Iranian citizen was a citizen journalist. The repression could have been much cruder if it wasn't for the internet . The world had access to what was happening in Iran thanks to mass journalism, " Moghaddam explained.
As a reaction the regime has made sever rulings on the use of the net in internet cafes and is now creating a national internet that will shut Iran from the rest of the world. Unfortunately the regime's campaign against the internet is not receiving much attention.
"The Iranian authorities have sentenced to death four web creators accused of spreading corruption on earth. One of them is Saeed Malekpour a Canadian resident arrested in 2008. As a software programmer he had developed a program to upload images on websites. That same program was utilized in a porn adult website. Malekpour has been accused of managing that site defined obscene and was condemned to death. We ask the international community to pressure the Iranian regime to cancel the sentence. I ask you to save Saeed, if we don't react it means that we accept what's happening."
