Iran’s cruel execution of Navid Afkari is a travesty. No country should arrest, torture, or execute peaceful protestors or activists.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) September 12, 2020
Iran must free its other political prisoners, including Nasrin Sotoudeh, and release unjustly detained Americans. https://t.co/Jj9QZbyQL7
The Iranian regime’s execution of Navid Afkari is a vicious and cruel act. We condemn it in the strongest terms. It is an outrageous assault on human dignity, even by the despicable standards of this regime. The voices of the Iranian people will not be silenced. #نویدمان_را_کشتند— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) September 12, 2020
#Iran: We are completely shocked, saddened & horrified at the secret execution of Navid Afkari, a young man with a promising future ahead of him. This travesty of justice needs immediate int'l action through public & private interventions.https://t.co/lxAQ3sIDKG #نوید_افکاری— Amnesty International (@amnesty) September 12, 2020
Don’t let #NavidAfkari’s death be forgotten. Media are reacting today but they will forget him tomorrow. We need concrete action. Many Iranians are using the hashtag #BanIRSports4Navid because they have a message. Don’t let Navid be another statistic. Boycott the regime. https://t.co/5PneAbWEMt— Masih Alinejad 🏳️ (@AlinejadMasih) September 12, 2020
