Amnesty says Iranian dissident faces imminent execution

Amnesty International urged Iran on Saturday not to execute a political dissident convicted of "enmity against God" in what it said had been an unfair trial, as his family said they feared he would be hanged within hours.

Gholamreza Khosravi Savajani was sentenced in 2010 in connection to alleged links with the People’s Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI) a group that seeks to overthrow the Islamic Republic, Amnesty says.

The PMOI, which has an office in Paris, said Savajani’s family had been summoned to the jail where he was being held and had been told he would be executed on Sunday morning.

"Yet again Iranian authorities are about to execute a man who did not even receive a fair trial in total disregard of both international law and the Iranian law," said Hassiba Hadj Saharoui, of London-based Amnesty International.

Iran says its judicial system is fair and accuses Western powers of using accusations of human rights abuses as a way to undermine it.

Human rights groups say Iran executes more people as a proportion of the population than any other country and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in March that the rate of executions had risen since the election of President Hassan Rouhani last year.

In the last execution in Iran that received international attention, Iranian media reported last week the hanging of the first of four men sentenced to death for a financial scam that tainted the government of former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Thousands march in Cyprus’ first gay pride parade, seeking equal rights

NICOSIA – Thousands of people marched in Cyprus’ first gay pride parade on Saturday, calling for equal rights in a country where homosexuality is still vehemently opposed by an influential Orthodox Church.

Waving rainbow flags, more than 3,500 people of all ages marched peacefully through the streets of the Cypriot capital where earlier a much smaller, anti-gay group clashed with police.

Cyprus decriminalized homosexuality in 1998, five years after a lone activist won a damning judgement against the country from the European Court of Human Rights.

Sixteen years on, activists say Cyprus still lags far behind its European Union peers in terms of rights for gay people, and has been slow in pursuing legislation on civil partnerships.

Police make additional Syria-related arrest at Heathrow Airport

LONDON – British police arrested two people at Heathrow airport on Saturday on suspicion of "terrorism"-related activities in Syria, they said.

A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of "preparing for acts of terrorism" in relation to Syria and a 20-year-old man was held on suspicion of "sending property overseas for the purpose of assisting terrorism in Syria."

A police spokesman said the two arrests were not connected.

Officers from the Counter Terrorism command unit made the arrest but police said the detention of the 19-year-old was not in response to any immediate risk or threat.
