The father of one of the victims of Iran's recent protests was tried on charges of "assembly and collusion with the intention of disrupting national security".

Ali Rouhi's court session was held Tuesday at Branch 26 of Tehran Revolutionary Court.

He is the father of Hamidreza Rouhi, a university student who was shot dead near his home in Shahr-e Ziba neighborhood in the west of the capital on November 18.

Ali Rouhi was arrested on April 6 after he invited people to attend the birthday of his murdered son. He was released from Evin prison on bail on April 9.

Rouhi's family has been under pressure for attempts to keep their son’s memory alive.

Following the "Woman, Life, Freedom" movement, the families of many of the victims did not remain silent and began to reveal the brutalities of the regime.

However, security and intelligence organs try to silence them by threats, intimidation, and arrests.

Zahra, the sister of Milad Saeedianjou, is one of the petitioners who was arrested for the second time on July 10.

In the past months, the family members of a number of those killed in protests, including Abolfazl Adinehzadeh, Javad Heydari, Reza Lotfi, Hamed Selahshour, Artin Rahmani, Navid Afkari, Pouya Bakhtiari, Farzad Ansarifar, etc., were arrested and charged with political crimes.
