Mahboubeh Ramezani: We will make you regret every single life you took over these years
In an article, the mother of one of the November 2019 Iran protests victims announced that Iranian security services had threatened her and her family. Mahboubeh Ramezani seeks justice for her son, Pejman Qolipour, shot five times at close range on November 17, 2019.
Mahboubeh Ramezani explained in her article: “After several times that (the security services) called my husband and I but we did not respond, they called my son. They told him to be careful. ‘If your family continues to do what they are doing, worse incidents will be awaiting them.’ My son told them, ‘My parents seek justice for their son.’ (The security services) replied, ‘Their son was an offender, and we killed him! Tell your parents to come here, or we will come and transfer them to jail.”
Reacting to the threats, Mahboubeh Ramezani reiterated, “The chests of all the families (of the victims of the November 2019 uprising) are ready for your bullets. Your threats, imprisonment, and torture are no longer effective. We will make you remorse. We will make you regret every single life you took over all these years.”
Since she lost her son in November 2019, Mrs. Ramezani has consistently sought justice for her 18-year-old son, Pejman Qolipour, and all the victims killed during the protests in November 2019. She has exposed the crimes of the clerical regime.
Mahboubeh Ramezani revealed
In May 2021, Mahboubeh Ramezani revealed in a video clip published virtually how the regime stalled her son’s murder investigation. “When I was looking for the camera above my child, I said, ‘Sir, show me this camera to find out who killed my child?’ After eleven months, they brought me a fake letter that the municipality had said that the camera had burned out on the 17th (of November) when my child was shot!”
In one of her pleas to the public, she said, “Help me seek justice for my son. Help me stay in the path of seeking justice for my son. I promised Pejman to be his voice in every breath. Be our voice. Be the mothers’ voice. We don’t want anything else from you. Just be our voice. This is the only thing we need.”
