Zila Mousavi, the mother of political prisoner Hossein Ronaghi Malaki, said her son’s prison time is over and returning him behind bars is completely illegal. “However, if they arrest Hossein’s father for conducting interviews and speaking to the media about our son’s conditions, I will not remain silent and they cannot silence me,” she said.
“My son was healthy when he was arrested and taken to prison. They made him sick. He lost his kidneys. They violated his rights and said be silent! Don’t conduct interviews! Don’t say anything! How can we remain silent?” Mrs. Mousavi asked.
“What has Hossein done other than defend the rights of others? He defended what is right. Why do you embarrass religion like this? I once voted for independence and freedom. I didn’t vote for these lies. I voted for my child to live free. I didn’t vote for my innocent child to be taken to prison and place him under so much pain, and then maintain him in prison, all being against the law and against the opinion of the coroner’s office,” she added.
