Milad Zohrevand

Executed Iranian Protester Denied Burial In Muslim Cemetery

Sunday, 11/26/2023

Milad Zohrevand, secretly executed in Hamadan prison for his part in protests last year, has been denied burial in a Muslim cemetery and his parents arrested during his funeral.

The Hengaw Human Rights Organization claims regime authorities refused permission for his body to be transferred to the Muslim cemetery of Malayer, and after his burial in the Armenian cemetery of Hamadan, they poured concrete over his grave.

The burial ceremony, held on Saturday, took place under stringent security measures, with only a few family members in attendance.

On Sunday, the Iranian Human Rights Organization announced that Afsaneh Zohrevand, Milad's mother, was detained during her son's funeral on charges of "disturbing the peace."

Twitter account Dadban also reported on Sunday that Milad Zohrevand's father, Rouhollah, was arrested after the burial ceremony and transferred to prison. As of now, the reasons for his arrest and his current status have not been disclosed.

Milad Zohrevand had been sentenced to death in connection with trumped up charges of "killing" of an IRGC officer named Ali Nazari during the Woman Life Freedom protests in which more than 500 civilians were brutally murdered

Amnesty International has condemned Zohrevand's execution, the eighth related to the 2022 protests sparked by the death in morality police custody of Mahsa Amini, calling it a systematic use of extrajudicial executions by the Islamic Republic as a tool of suppression.
