Shole Pakravan, mother of the late Reyhaneh Jabbari, wrote, “Look at this picture, how happy and joyful she is. After seven years in prison there was no sign of joy. My hopes were destroyed by Jalal Sarbandi and his evil assistants. I read the Quran.
I searched so much but I found no verse saying make someone suffer for 7 years in prison, hang them and then leave them hanging for an hour so there would be no possibility of life. An agent said whatever it was, there was a lot of hatred and this sense of abhorrence had nothing to do with the murder victim’s family. They didn’t want to specify how long she had to remain hanged.”
