Maku: Two Kurdish dissident activists, Sarhad Chalesh and Saeed Ramazan, have been sentence to execution on the charges of cooperation and memberships of a Kurdish opposition group.

Sarhad Chalesh from Turkish Kurdistan and Saeed Ramazan from Syrian Kurdistan were sentenced to death by the revolutionary court in the city of Khoy last month. These two activists were arrested and imprisoned two years ago on charges of membership in a Kurdish opposition group.

Last week Sarhad Chalesh and Saeed Ramazan were transfered to Zanjan and Qazwin prisons respectively.
