In the wake of call by activist mothers of Laleh Park to hold a memorial service for Shahrokh Zamani on the anniversary of this death,
the Ministry of Intelligence prevented the ceremony.
Mr. Zamani’s family said they were supposed to hold a ceremony for him in Tehran at his nephew’s house. They had invited a number labor activists, friends and relatives. However, the phone threats made by the Ministry of Intelligence forced cancellation of the ceremony and people were not even allowed to get together.
Shahrokh Zamani, labor activist and political prisoner, was found dead in Gohardasht Prison, in suspicious circumstances on September 13, 2015. His cellmates found his lifeless body in his bed with bloody mouth and bruised head. Before his dead, he had written a note indicating that he had been threatened directly and indirectly by the Dept. of Intelligence. “My death in prison under whatever pretext is caused by the officials.”
Mothers of Laleh Park are a group of active women who defend the rights of political prisoners and their families.
