Shanaz Akmali’s Family Confused by Authorities’ False Information
HRANA News Agency – On January 28, 2017, Karim Baigi family referred to the prosecutor’s office while having the required bail but judicial authorities told them, “she would not be released on the bail, she is now in prison custody”. Apparently interrogators have provided false information to the prisoner or her family on several occasions and causing confusion and increased the psychological pressure on them.
According to the report of Human Rights Activists New Agency in Iran (HRANA), on January 25, 2017, Shahnaz Akmali, Mostafa Karim Baigi’s mother, the victim of the protests in 2009, was arrested by the Ministry of Intelligence at her workplace and is being held in ward 209 of Evin prison.
Mrs. Akmali had told her family in a brief contact that a bail of 1 billion IRR had been issued and she would be released on the bail on January 28, 2017.
On January 28, 2017, her family went to the prosecutor’s office while having the documents but judicial authorities told them, “she would not be released on the bail, she is now in prison custody.”
Providing false information to Karim Baigi family and Shahnaz Akmali by security forces caused confusion and concern of the family on her situation.
On January 25, 2017, Shahnaz Akmali, Mostafa Karim Baigi’s mother was arrested by the Ministry of Intelligence at her workplace and was taken to her house. After that the intelligence officers searched the house and confiscated all her belongings.
Mostafa Karim Beigi was shot in the head, around Neauphle-le-Château Street in Tehran. Although he was a resident of Tehran, security forces did not allow his family to bury him in Tehran, so they were forced to bury him in in Shahriar in Karaj.
Mrs. Akmali had been summoned by the security forces, every year before his son’s anniversary, and got warnings regarding the restrictions to be followed in the anniversary.
