M.H. : Hello Mr. Zamani. You are the brother of Mosleh Zamani, who has been a prisoner for the last 4 years, since the age 17, and has recently been condemned to the death penalty for simply loving a 24 years old woman, correct?
MB: Mosleh liked a girl and they made a case out of it and used that against him. Why should a teenager be sentenced to death for this? Mosleh has been in prison for 4 years and is now 21 years old and we have not been able to do anything for his case.
MH: when did you recieve news of his condemnation?
MB: We were informed of his death sentence yesterday.
MH: Who gave the order for the death penalty and were you present at Mosleh's trial?
MB: No, they did not let us attend his trial, we were informed of his death sentence from his lawyer. The Supreme Court of Tehran issued his sentence.
MH: So even Mosleh's family, his own mother & father were not allowed at his trial?
MB: Correct. They did not even let his father & mother be at his trial'
MH: Have you protested his sentence?
MB: Not yet today is Friday which is a holy day in Iran.
MH: When is the last time you saw Mosleh?
MB: One month ago.
MH: How was he?
MB: He was only a teenager when he was arrested and after 4 years he is in a bad condition
MH: is Mosleh's mother present? I would like to speak with her as well
MB: She is here, but she cannot speak Farsi, only Kurdish
MH: Can I please speak to Mosleh's father, if he is available? Hi MR Esmael Zamani, I recieved documents about your son Mosleh from the Association in Defense of CHIld Political Prisoners, and Human RIghts organizations in Iran and sent a letter to inform Amnesty International and other HR groups about Mosleh's situation and since now we have recieved responses from some of them we are putting forth much effort for your sons case. Mr. Zamani wuld please tell our viewers when you last saw Mosleh in Prison?
E.Z: I saw him yesterday.
MH: Does he know that he has been commited to the death sentence?
EZ: No, he does not know yet.
MH: Mr. Zamani, being Mosleh's father, did you appear at his trial?
MH: What is your message to everyone who is listening to your voice?
EZ: We are only asking for his freedom. Mosleh has not commited any crime. The Islamic Republic has condemned him to death for expressing his love to a 24 years old woman. What kind of justice is this?
MH: You should appeal through your attorney and have the Association in Defense of Children and Human RIghts activisits take the case to Amnesty International.
MB: I am just waiting for my brother to be free. Please If you will, say hello to Mr. Azad Zamani for us.
MH: Of course.http://www.anjomane.blogfa.com/ http://www.petitiononline.com/MZ2207/petition.html
