The father of Mahsa Amini, the young woman whose death in hijab police custody sparked the current protests in Iran, says authorities tried to force him into giving interviews to Iran's state broadcaster. 

Amjad Amini said in an interview on Wednesday that he and his brother-in-law were threatened by authorities to give interviews to support the narrative of the Islamic Republic about the death of Mahsa, who received fatal blows to her head while in custody.. 

"Islamic Republic’s state broadcaster was the last media that contacted me, and I told them frankly that I will not give and interview to them under any circumstances; Three weeks later, they called me and expected me to speak to them. I asked them about the reason to interview me,” he said. 

"I did not allow them to speak to tell me their demands," he said. 

He said he asked about the reason for her daughter's death, but the authorities told him that it is none of his business and they will announce whatever is in the interest of the Islamic Republic. 

Iran International obtained Amini’s brain CT scan from hospital sources in September that shows serious injuries to her skull. Hospital staff also confirmed that she was in a coma upon arrival. Fars news agency affiliated with the Revolutionary Guard confirmed that the CT scan belonged to Amini. Moreover, her photos in the hospital show her bleeding from the right ear, a definite sign of brain injury.
