Daughter of female executed political prisoner under pressure and threats one month after mother’s execution

One month after the inhumane death sentence for political prisoner Zahra Bahrami was carried out, interrogators of the Intelligence Agency and Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolat Abadi refuse to hand over her will and personal belongings to her family.

Reza Arefi, an interrogator and torturer who works for the Intelligence Agency in the Sepah Cellblock in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, summoned Bahrami’s daughter, Banafsheh Naebpour, and her husband some time ago to the Karaj Intelligence Agency and interrogated and threatened them for a prolonged amount of time.  Arefi told her that if she called the Dutch Embassy (Zahra Bahrami had a dual Dutch-Iranian nationality) the media or human rights activists she and her husband would be arrested.

He also threatened that they would charge her mother with immoral conduct in a TV show called 20:30 to bring disgrace to their family. Arefi also told them that they were not allowed to put a stone on her grave and no more than 10 people were allowed to go to her gravesite at one time.
