Mr. Taheri’s formal request for “Renunciation of Citizenship” addressed to President Hasan Rouhani
Mr. President of Islamic Republic of Iran, Dr. Hasan Rouhani ,
With sincere Greetings ,
It has been more than eight and a half years since I was imprisoned like a hostage by Sarallah security officers.
It is evident through the documents attached and numerous complaints that I have written that during this time, since 2011 until now, I have been under intense cruelty, comprehensive injustice, and threats of organized criminal collusion of Judicial authorities and SarAllah (part of IRGC). These organized collusion with the intention of damaging my character and physical being are still an ongoing concern which leads me to no longer keep any hope on those whom are in charge of upholding fair, justice and impartial rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran ‘s regime.
Therefore, according to the holy verse of Quran : “ verse 97, Chapter 4; An-Nisa “ and in alignmentwith my human and religious duties to stand up to oppression, I would like to demand renouncing my citizenship from the regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran .
It needs to be mentioned that this virtuous action is to obtain and defend my human, religious and political rights, therefore the Iranian nation and the future generations could have a fair and conscious judgment on this matter; by conscious and fair judgment a deserved punishment will be demanded. This virtuous action is a reaction against injustice and the subjectivity of Iranian law; also it is to follow the divine command that suggests: “ Not to be cruel, and not to accept cruelty “
I hope that by accepting my request you will allow me to keep my pride and honor in the presence of the God Almighty.
