Letter from alumni of Iran's Sharif University of Technology to President Khatami regarding detained students

From: A group of Sharif University of Technology alumni
To: Mr. Khatami, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran

In recent weeks, we have witnessed the widespread and illegal detentions of a large number of students and young people. In one of the latest incidents, we were informed of the arrest of Hojjatollah Sharifi, the former secretary of the Islamic Association of Sharif University of Technology and Arash Hashemi, a member of the central assembly of that association, both of whom were elected by the university's students.

As a group of Sharif University of Technology alumni, we believe that regardless of their grounds or justifications, these detentions are obvious violation of the human rights and the civil liberties that are articulated in the constitution. Therefore, we express our deepest concern regarding these arrests, and particularly, the arrest of our friends, Hojjatollah Sharifi and Arash Hasehmi. We are writing this letter to urge you to pursue this matter in order to expedite their release.

As the president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, you have pledged to defend the civil rights and social liberties of the people. Your faithfulness to this pledge is our expectation.
