Iran buries body of female executed political prisoner in secret without presence of family

According to reports, the body of executed political prisoner Zahra Bahrami was buried in Semnan by agents of the Intelligence Agency without the presence of her family.

On Sunday, February 6 at about 3:30 pm intelligence agents called Bahrami’s daughter, Banafsheh Naebpour from Semnan and informed her that they intended to bury her mother’s body in this town and that one of her family members could be present in the burial. This is while it takes about 4 and a half hours to go to Semnan from Tehran and the family were not able to make it on time and the intelligence agents put into practice their intent to bury the body in secret without the presence of family members as they had in the case of other executed political prisoners…

Intelligence agents threatened this family not to hold any kind of ceremony in public places like Mosques or prayer halls and said that they would officially announce that the Bahrami family was banned from holding the ceremony in public places.

Intelligence agents also threatened this family in a phone call saying that they were not to inform the Dutch Embassy that Zahra Bahrami was buried in secret and that her family was banned from holding a memorial service. (Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran – Feb. 6, 2011)
