نیروی انتظامی به تجمع دراویش گنابادی معترض در مقابل ساختمان کلانتری پاسداران تهران حمله کرد. شاهدان حاضر در محل درگیری می‌گویند که پلیس به صورت مستقیم به معترضان شلیک کرده و چند تن از معترضان زخمی شدند.


دراویش گنابادی از صبح دوشنبه ۳۰ بهمن در اعتراض به بازداشت نعمت‌الله ریاحی، درویش ۶۷ ساله‌ای که روز گذشته دستگیر شد، در برابر ساختمان کلانتری پاسداران تهران تجمع کردند.



معترضان که برای دقایقی با نشستن بر کف خیابان مانع تردد خودرها شدند، خواستار آزادی بدون قید و شرط ریاحی شدند.


به گفته یکی از شاهدان عینی پلیس پس از شلیک هوایی که به منظور پراکنده کردن معترضان صورت گرفت، به تجمع‌کنندگان به صورت مستقیم شلیک کرد.


نعمت‌الله ریاحی یکشنبه ۲۹ بهمن پس از مراجعه به کلانتری ۱۰۲ پاسداران بازداشت و زندانی شده است.


به گفته یکی از دراویش گنابادی، ریاحی دچار عارضه قلبی است و قلبش با باطری کار می‌کند.


وب‌سایت مجذوبان نور، ارگان خبری دراویش گنابادی گزارش کرده است که ریاحی پس از مراجعه برای پیگیری وضعیت امیرعلی محمدی‌لباف به کلانتری رفته، بازداشت شده است.


براساس این گزارش محمدی‌لباف نیز روز گذشته برای چند ساعت بازداشت و بازجویی شده است. او هنگامی که برای پیگیری وضعیت خودرو سرقت شده‌اش به کلانتری فراخوانده می‌شود، تحت بازجویی قرار می‌گیرد.


برخی از کاربران شبکه‌های اجتماعی این اقدام پلیس تهران را «سناریو سازی» برای بازداشت دراویش گنابادی خوانده‌اند.


به گفته دراویش گنابادی شماره پلاک خودروهایی که در تجمع مقابل محل سکونت نورعلی تابنده حضور داشتند، برداشته شده و صاحبان این خودروها طی روزهای گذشته به دفتر پیگیری‌های وزارت اطلاعات احضار شده‌اند.


دراویش گنابادی چندی پیش با تجمع شبانه در اطراف محل سکونت نورعلی تابنده مانع بازداشت او توسط نیروهای امنیتی شدند.


معاون سیاسی و امنیتی استانداری و رئیس پلیس تهران پیشتر گفته بودند که دراویش معترضی که در اطراف محل سکونت نورعلی تابنده تجمع کردند، بازداشت نخواهند شد.

Of tens of women on the streets of Iran who started to take off their veils during the mass street demonstration of January 2018 to object the compulsory hijab law of the country, 29 were arrested. But most recently on 15 Feb, another women showed up to the original location of the first women who took off her veil: a power box on Enghelab street in Tehran


Azam Jangravi who had posted a message of protest on her social media accounts was live broadcasting her protest when police came to arrest her. She was holding a white veil in her hand when she was taken down from the power box violently by the officers. Some in the crowd that had gathered around Jangravi resisted the officers but she was ultimately taken into custody


“From the moment I left the house till I reached the platform, it was as if my heart was beating in my mouth. It was not just fear. Of course I was scared because it was not clear what was going to happen. But it was not just fear; I felt excitement and a series of other unfamiliar feelings. When I went up on the platform, attached my headscarf to the stick and held it up, then my heart really started racing


This is Setareh’s* description of her experience participating in the recent demonstration of resistance against compulsory hijab in Iran. On Monday January 29, a number of brave women like Setareh climbed onto public platforms in Tehran and made a flag of their headscarves challenging the four decades of Islamic Republic authority which has forced Iranian women to cover their hair in public. Setareh is one of these women who have come to be known as the women of Enghelab Street. She is 25 years old and has recently graduated from university


When I ask her what made you dare do such a thing, she says: “Vida Movahedi did it and then we all thought what a fantastic move! There was no movement behind it; no White Wednesdays campaign rallying people to do such a thing. She was just a very brave soul. She dared to do it and she was arrested and she had to pay for it and probably is still paying for it. But I think the second person did a more vital job. She transformed it from a mere event to a movement. She saved it from being just a legend and turned it into a civil movement. When I saw that someone has repeated it, I realized that the story goes on. Then I saw photos of the third woman in Ferdowsi Square. I told myself I have always been against compulsory hijab and this is a kind of movement that does not need to organize and gather people and groups. It is one of the few protests that you can do on your own. So I put on my clothes. Up to the platform I wore my headscarf on my shoulders and then the rest of the story


Setareh holds out for half an hour on the platform and receives a number of reactions. “Most people would just stop and look and then go. Some men would throw me dirty comments. One was standing beside be pulling on the corner of my coat and asking me to come down. Another person came and took the first person away. One came and told me that he was also critical of certain things in society but this was not the right way to go about fixing them. I did not listen to anyone. I just held my gaze to the front. Some women would give me strange looks and start whispering in each others ears. Some young men and women would smile and give me the victory sign which was very heartwarming. Taxi drivers were also excited and shouting bless your heart! You’re so brave


Later Setareh spots a couple of policemen exiting a nearby building so she leaves the spot and walks away


I ask her what dangers await her: “All of us probably know that even if we are not arrested on the spot, we can be identified from photos that are taken while we are there. There will probably more threats as the movement picks up momentum and there are more women doing it. We all understand the possible costs of such actions but we believe in it so we cannot just sit around. You can’t just expect others to take action; you have to do your part


I asked Setareh about her personal motivation


It is not just an issue of hijab. A regime that interferes in such basic and rudimentary matter of an individual’s life as their outfit, only attests to being a dictatorship in social and political matters. There have been numerous forms of protests to compulsory hijab but I believe this is the most civic and beautiful manifestation of the protest so far


Setareh’s family are proud to support her but she recognizes that this is not case for everyone and she observes: “You could also have dictators in you own family. For those who don’t have the support of their family, it is much harder


Setareh says this protest also needs and is gaining the support of men who realize that compulsory hijab is an insult to them as well. She also speaks of the support of women who chose to wear the hijab but do not believe in enforcing it on others


She stresses that she will not invite others to join the protest or look down upon those who do not participate in this form of its manifestation conceding that these actions could end up being very costly in terms of how the government deals with protesters


She says a violent reaction by the authorities is not a far fetched idea adding that we could see a wave of knife and acid attacks on women. She observes that those arrested are already dealing with heavy bails which could be followed by heavy sentences. The least that can be expected could be a more violent presence of the morality police on the streets


Setareh now lives in a world of hope and fear. Since Monday she has not covered her hair in public and has worn her scarf on her shoulders when going out like many others. She says with a hopeful tone saying: “I have often heard that the next revolution in the country will be a women’s revolution. If this protest fails another one will be born from its belly. The International Women’s Day is approaching. Men and women might take to the streets and show their protest to compulsory hijab in a different form. No one knows. A few days ago no one would have thought that Vida Movahed’s actions will get replicated in this manner

Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) judiciary states that the environmentalist professor who died under suspicious circumstances in prison was member of an espionage network. Meanwhile, his son speaks out about the atrocities that the country’s security agents have committed against his family members and his late father and says his father’s death has escalated tensions within factions of the IRI



The Iranian-Canadian Kavous Seyyed Emami, 63 was a professor of sociology of religion and an environmentalist. He was arrested by the intelligence faction of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on 24 Jan 2018. No charges were brought against Seyed Emami until his death in a prison cell – a death that was announced on Feb 9th and that the Iranian human rights community is calling suspicious. The Iranian judiciary is calling the cause of death suicide


Seyed Emami headed Parsian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, an NGO which mainly worked for conservation of endangered species


Dr. Emami’s son now says that IRGC security forces have threatened his family both when his father was in custody and after his death. The judiciary and IRGC agents have also denied the family the right to an independent autopsy and have conducted their own autopsy not allowing family lawyers to be present


On Feb 14, Ramin Seyed Emami, the son of late Dr. S. Emami wrote on his blog that security forces in Iran have put his family under pressure and have banned them from disclosing information to media


Ramin writes that “threats of harming his dad” forced the family to keep silent during the time Seyed Emami was in custody



On Feb 9th the 27th District Court in Tehran summoned Maryam Mombeini, Seyyed Emami’s wife where Security officials affiliated with the IRGC interrogated her for three hours, threatened her and coerced her to sign a paper saying that she will not speak to the media about her husband’s death


The family has also been denied the right to an independent investigation and autopsy. On 12 Feb however, the family and their lawyers went to the coroner’s office to witness the autopsy that was being conducted by the order of judiciary officials and the family lawyers were denied entry to the autopsy room. Ramin was able to enter the coroner’s office and was told that the autopsy report ordered by the judiciary will be presented to the judiciary officials in 4-6 weeks


The closed-circuit footage from Seyyed Emami’s last hours in a prison cell was presented to Ramin and his account is similar to some members of the IRI parliament who have also seen this footage. Seyyed Emami’s son confirms that the video shows a man in distress but does not show the actual happening of a suicide. Ramin writes:  “I won’t speak of the pain of seeing this video, but I will say that nothing in it is conclusive. The actual death is not recorded. All I could see is that my dad is nervous and restless. He is not himself. He paces the cell to and fro. I can say the man in the video (my dad) who goes into a different room, which we were told was the “bathroom,” by himself, is not in a sound psychological condition. Seven hours later a body is carried out of that room


One day Ramin Seyed Emami disclosed that security agents have been harassing and pressuring his family “20:30” a television program affiliated with the intelligence factions of IRI aired what they called a “documentary” in which the brother of the late Seyyed Emami seemed to be a forced to give a confession attesting that he has seen the video from the cell and that the cause of death is suicide


The program goes on to claim that Seyyed Emami and other environmentalists who are still in custody were part of CIA, Mossad espionage network collecting information on Iran’s ballistic missile programme. No evidence is presented for this claim but the state TV claims that cameras that the group had set up to watch for wildlife were used for monitoring missiles


Dr. Seyed Emami was the director of Parsian NGO and along with his arrested colleagues was working in the habitat of the endangered Asian cheetah. The cameras were set up to monitor t habitat


Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi has also accused Dr. Emami and the other arrested environmentalists of espionage charges saying that the conservationist work they did was a as a cover to collect “classified information


This is an accusation that the Iranian environmentalist community finds to be absurd. More than a dozen activists, journalists and environmentalist have expressed their concerns and objected these charges including the former head of the Department of Environment, Masoumeh Ebtekar who said she is “worried” about the arrests of environmentalists in Iran


Ebtekar who is currently heading the Department of Women and Family Affairs and is the first female member in the cabinet of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, seems to be a target in the case brought against the environmentalists in Iran. The Persian speaking social media have been filled with users affiliated with the state who are reiterating the narrative of linking Seyyed Emami to foreign spy agencies but they have also posted many photos of him with Ebtekar implicating Ebtekar in the case


A tweet showing Entekar and Seyed Emami together in a frame implicating the cabinet member with the late professor

The suspicious death of Dr. Emami and the arrests of environmentalists has increased the already existing tension within factions in the Islamic Republic namely between the government of Hassan Rouhani and the hardliner sector of IRGC that heads the security agency of this armed organization


Ramin Seyed Emmmi has written about this tension among various state factions in his Instagram account: “those who have caused this tragedy are apparently under pressure from other factions within the state and have to answer. As such in order to justify this they are spreading accusations against my father


Human rights groups like Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI), Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have all condemned Iran Judiciary and IRGC intelligence and are demanding an independent  investigation into the suspicious death of Seyed Emami and the arrest of the environmentalists in Iran


Seyed Emami is the third case of suspicious death announced as suicide by the Iranian prison authorities since mass protests started in the streets of Iran in Dec 2017 and Jan 2018.  Seyyed Emami is also the second Iranian-Canadian who dies a suspicious death in Iranian prisons. In 2003 of 54-year-old Zahra Kazemi was killed in prison. She was arrested while taking photos of the notorious Evin prison


Canada is under pressure to lead an investigation and demand for an independent autopsy. Iran and Canada have no diplomatic relations and Seyyed Emami has already been buried and exhumation of body will likely not happen even if the Canadians request it


In the meanwhile Hassan Rouhani has appointed a committee to investigate what his office calls “regrettable incidents” in Iranian prisons

Scientist Arrested Four Months after Returning to Iran

Iranian authorities have arrested Kaveh Madani, the deputy head of Iran’s environment department — a well-known academic who left a London teaching job five months ago to return to Iran and join the government. Madani’s arrest comes one day after the shocking death in prison of a respected Iranian-Canadian sociologist who had collaborated with the department on wildlife conservation projects. 

Mahmood Sadeghi, a popular pro-Rouhani reformist member of parliament from Tehran, confirmed that Madani had been arrested. Initially, the environment department’s public relations division denied the news, but Sadeghi posted it on Twitter. He said when he heard that Madani had been arrested, he had gone to see Isa Kalantari, the environment department’s head, to ask what the government was doing to follow up on the arrest of environmentalists and find out more about Madani’s situation. 

The arrest of Madani follows the death of Kavous Seyed-Emami, the scholar who ran a leading environmental NGO. He had been arrested on January 24 along with several other environmentalists, many of them associated with his Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation. Authorities claim Seyed-Emami committed suicide in prison after having “confessed” to his alleged crime of espionage. Seyed-Emami’s family reportedly reject the suicide claim, and many observers are skeptical that it would have been a possibility, given the strict security strictures for prisoners arrested on national security grounds, as he was. 

Gholamhossein Esmaili, the head of Tehran province’s judiciary, said the arrested environmentalists “were gathering information and supplying it to foreigners.” In remarks this morning, he said there could be more arrests. 

Madani is a celebrated 36-year old scholar who returned to Iran after a period abroad to serve as deputy head of Iran’s Department of the Environment. He was put in charge of running the department’s Education and Research section. Previously, he taught systems analysis and policy at London’s Imperial College for four years. Prior to that, he was an assistant professor at the University of Central Florida (UCF). An award-winning civil engineer, he was recruited by President Rouhani’s administration, primarily to work on Iran’s water crisis. As an activist, he had warned the government about the crisis for years. 

Madani was born in Tehran in 1981 to parents working in the water sector. He left the country — as so many other bright Iranians of his generation did — after obtaining his Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the prestigious University of Tabriz in Turkic-speaking northwestern Iran. His years after university resembled the lives of thousands of young and educated Iranians. He studied for a Master’s degree in water resources at Lund University in Sweden and then for a PhD in civil and environmental engineering at the University of California, Davis, which he finished in 2009. At Davis, he worked under Professor Jay R. Lund, known for his work on water problems in California and the controversial Hetch Hetchy Dam. 

“Kaveh was always a highly-energetic and forward-looking student,” Professor Lund told IranWire when we interviewed him for an article about Madani. “It was always clear that he would be very successful in anything that he devoted himself to.” 

Madani became well known for applying Game Theory to the thorny questions of water management. Lund says this interest “blossomed into a cornerstone of his academic career and probably helped prepare for his successes in government,” adding that, early on, Madani had a gift for “bringing people together productively, both in person and through various social media.”

Recognition came soon for the young scientist. In 2012, the landmark American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) presented Madani with an award for “representing the bold and humanitarian future of civil engineering” at its annual ceremony. A similar prize was to follow from the European Geosciences Union and, finally, in 2017, he was awarded the ASCE’s Water L. Huber prize, the most prestigious award for mid-career engineers. 

It’s not unusual for Iranians to pop up on lists of engineering award-winners, especially in North America. Along with medicine, engineering has long been a preferred field for young Iranians, many of them encouraged or even pressured by parents set on having high-achieving children. But perhaps less usual for someone who had settled and been so successful abroad was the degree to which Madani kept in touch with his homeland. He traveled home regularly, sometimes to lecture at Tehran’s prestigious Khajeh Nasir Toosi University of Technology (KNTU), named after the illustrious polymath of 13th-century Persia. 

Iran had long been suffering from the “syndrome of development illusion,” Madani said, tracing the phenomenon back to the shah’s time and projects financed by high oil prices. 

“After the revolution, our thirst for development went up,” he added. “We keep wanting to show the world that we can build and build and build. The same thing plagues countries like China, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.” 

When journalist Gelareh Darabi made an Al-Jazeera documentary about Iran’s water crisis, Madani became the film’s star attraction. Speaking in well-articulated English, he accompanied the director to the city of Isfahan, where the famous river Zayandeh Rood, so loved by many an Iranian, is now nothing but dry ground.

The Rouhani administration took note. In February 2017, Madani was invited to head Iran’s first international climate change conference. A few months later, Rouhani was re-elected and pledged to continue his modernizing agenda. Several environmental NGOs had been pushing for Madani as a possible minister of energy. Hopes were dashed when Rouhani announced his cabinet — once more full of old hands without a single seat going to a woman. But in September 2017 came the surprise appointment. Madani packed his bags to come to Tehran and serve a government that pledges good governance but faces the high expectations of a wary population. 

Saeed Hadian, a senior associate at PricewaterHouseCoopers’ San Fransisco office, has known Kaveh Madani for seven years. In 2010, when Hadian arrived at the University of Central Florida to study for his PhD, Kaveh Madani was just starting out as a professor. 

“Kaveh was the most humble professor I had ever met,” Hadian told IranWire in an interview from Tehran during a visit there. “I became familiar with his research background and was really interested in what he was doing. I was looking to work with him on a project. I asked for an opportunity and he gave me one.” 

Madani became Hadian’s supervisor and the two Iranians started to work together closely. Their co-authored papers appeared in top engineering journals on topics such as the water footprint of energy policies, energy efficiency and sustainable planning. 

“I found him a demanding professor who holds himself to very high standards and sets high expectations for his students from ethical, professional, and technical perspectives,” Hadian said.

For Hadian, Rouhani’s appointment of Kaveh Madani was more than just a personal decision. “I think this administration has stepped up on opening the doors for talented people like Kaveh,” he said. “There is a big number of Iranians out there, myself included, looking forward to coming back and serving their country if given a chance.”

Madani has voiced similar hopes. “There are a lot of people abroad, waiting and watching closely to see what’s going to happen,” he told Tehran’s English-language daily Tehran Times. “If I succeed, we might see more people coming back to help the government.”

He was clearly optimistic about his chances in Iran. His parents had opposed his return to Iran since, as he told the well-known reformist newspaper Shargh, “they thought many things were different there when it came to politics and government.” On social media, many also opposed his return and were skeptical of his chances of success in Iranian government. They were called pessimists and skeptics; Now, with Madani behind the bars less than six months after his return to serve the country of his birth, they seem to have been vindicated

After ten years of unjust imprisonment for his beliefs, Saeid Rezaie, one of the seven members of the former leadership group of the Baha’is in Iran, has today completed his wrongful sentence.


Mr. Rezaie and six of his colleagues were arrested in 2008 after an early-morning raid on their homes. They were part of the ad hoc group known as “the Yaran” (the Friends) which tended to the basic spiritual and material needs of the Iranian Baha’i community. The group was formed with the knowledge and tacit approval of authorities after formal Baha’i institutions were declared illegal in Iran in the 1980s. Mr. Rezaie is the fourth individual from among the former Yaran to be released.


Now, after ten years, he returns to a society that has changed little in terms of its treatment of the Baha’i community.


“Although Mr. Rezaie and three other members of the Yaran have been released, the persecution of the Baha’is in Iran continues unabated,” said Diane Ala’i, Representative of the Baha’i International Community to the United Nations in Geneva. “From prison, Mr. Rezaie will go back to a community that is still under immense pressure from the government and faces discrimination and persecution for no other reason than belief in the Baha’i Faith.”


Before he was imprisoned, Mr. Rezaie, who is an agricultural engineer, ran a successful farming equipment business. He is one of the many members of the Baha’i community who has suffered injustice as a result of economic-related persecution. Baha’i-owned shops and businesses are regularly closed by the authorities after owners are harassed. In the last few years, hundreds of such businesses have been closed and scores of families have been deprived of an income. In an open letter to President Hassan Rouhani, the BIC referred to this discrimination as “economic apartheid.”


The three remaining members of the Yaran are expected to complete their sentences in the coming months. They include Mr. Jamaloddin Khanjani, 84; Mr. Afif Naeimi, 56; and Mr. Vahid Tizfahm, 44.

محمدرضا تابش، نماینده تهران در اطلاعیه‌ای اعلام کرد شماری از اساتید دانشگاه و متخصصان منابع طبیعی که برای دفاع از فعالان بازداشتی محیط زیست به تهران رفته بودند، در حادثه سقوط هواپیمای تهران-یاسوج جان خود را از دست دادند.



رئیس فراکسیون محیط زیست مجلس در اطلاعیه‌ای که در اختیار خبرگزاری‌ها قرار داده، نوشته:


«حادثه تاسف‌بار سقوط هواپیما در مسیر یاسوج که منجر به جان باختن ده‌ها تن از سرنشینان و کادر هدایت کننده هواپیما شد، و جمعی از اساتید دانشگاه و متخصصان متعهد و از خود گذشته محیط زیست و منابع طبیعی که در روزهای اخیر با حضور در مجلس شورای اسلامی از تلاشگران این عرصه و فعالیتهای آنها مستندا دفاع نمودند را به کام مرگ کشید».


در روزهای گذشته، به دنبال انتشار خبر مرگ کاووس سیدامامی، بازداشت شماری از فعالان محیط زیست خبرساز شد.


فعالان بازداشت شده از مدیران و کارکنان «مؤسسه حیات وحش میراث پارسیان» بودند.


در حال حاضر هومن جوکار (مدیر پروژه یوز آسیایی)، سپیده کاشانی (همسر هومن جوکار)، نیلوفر بیانی (مشاور سابق برنامه محیط زیست سازمان ملل متحد)، مراد طاهباز (فعال محیط زیست و میراث فرهنگی) و سام رجبی (فعال محیط زیست و عضو سابق موسسه حیات وحش میراث پارسیان) به اتهام جاسوسی در بازداشت به سر می برند.


خبر بازداشت این افراد در ابتدا به دلیل فشارهای امنیتی بر خانواده‌های‌شان مسکوت ماند اما با جان باختن کاووس سیدامامی در زندان اوین، اسامی بازداشت‌شدگان به رسانه‌ها راه یافت.


در حال حاضر این فعالان محیط زیست در بازداشت سازمان اطلاعات سپاه پاسداران به سر می‌برند.


دستگیری اعضای ارشد موسسه «حیات وحش میراث پارسیان» از چهارم بهمن ماه آغاز شده بود.


مؤسسه «حیات وحش میراث پارسیان» در زمینه حفاظت از گونه های در معرض تهدید از جمله یوزپلنگ ایرانی فعال بود. این موسسه همکاری‌های گسترده‌ای نیز با سازمان محیط زیست داشت.


همین موضوع سبب شده بود که در سال های گذشته رسانه‌های منتقد دولت از جمله خبرگزاری تسنیم نزدیک به سپاه پاسداران و همچنین روزنامه کیهان این مؤسسه را به استفاده از رانت دولتی و فروش مجوزهای غیرقانونی شکار به افراد خارجی متهم کرده بود.

شنیده‌ها حاکی از آن است که این زندانی کُرد توسط عوامل زندان سنندج به قتل رسیده است، 


در همین رابطه نیز، روز دوشنبه بیست و پنجم دی‌ماه، یک زندانی کُرد به نام حسین قادری ٣٠ ساله ساکن سنندج در قرنطینه زندان مرکزی این شهر به دلایل نامعلومی جان خود را از دست داد.



در جریان اعتراضات مردمی در کردستان و ایران، رسانه‌ها از مرگ چندین شهروند زندانی از جمله مرگ سارو قهرمانی، کیانوش زندی و آرام معاذی در بازداشتگاه‌ سنندج خبر دادند. اگرچه مقامات قضایی و امنیتی مدعی‌اند سارو قهرمانی در جریان درگیری مسلحانه کشته است، اما منابع مستقل و نهادهای حقوق بشری این ادعاها را مردود می‌دانند. در همان حال گفته می‌شود، کیانوش زندی و آرام معاذی در پی ضرب و شتم و شکنجه در بازداشتگاه‌های سنندج جان باخته‌اند.

Ramin Seyed-Emami has issued a statement about the death of his father, Kavous Seyed-Emami, and what his family experienced while trying to find out more about the circumstances of his death. While at the coroner's office near Tehran, he was given access to video footage of his father before his death, but he insists that “nothing is conclusive.”

“We have a right to know why my father was arrested and the circumstances that led to his passing,” Ramin Seyed-Emami, a rapper who is known by his stage name King Raam, wrote on his blog. “We will use every legal channel at our disposal towards an independent investigation.” 

Authorities arrested Kavous Seyed-Emami, a professor, sociologist and environmental campaigner with dual Iranian-Canadian citizenship,  at the end of January, along with several other environmental activists, most of them with links to the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation. On February 9, the family was informed that he had committed suicide. The next day, Tehran’s prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi officially announced the death, and confirmed that other environmental activists had been arrested on charges of espionage. 

On his blog, Ramin Seyed-Emami gives his account of going to the coroner’s office, and of viewing video footage of his father in his cell before his alleged suicide. “I won’t speak of the pain of seeing this video, but I will say that nothing in it is conclusive. The actual death is not recorded. All I could see is that my dad is nervous and restless. He is not himself.” His father is seen leaving the room where the camera is. “Seven hours later, a body is carried out of that room,” he writes. 

The family’s legal counsel, who Seyed-Emami refers to as Mr Keykhosravi and Mr Derafshan, accompanied him and his brother to the coroner’s office in Kahrizak, south of Tehran. They were not, however, allowed to see the body, or the cell where Kavous Seyed-Emami was held. Authorities said if the family wanted lawyers to have access to the autopsy report when it was released, it had to appeal to a special court for permission.

Coroner officials told Seyed-Emami that an autopsy would automatically take place since the death occurred while his father was in custody, but that the report would take four to six weeks at the very least. 

Ramin Seyed-Emami describes how his mother found out about her husband’s death. “On Friday 9th of February, [the court] summoned my mother purportedly to ‘meet with her husband.’ Instead, they had interrogated and threatened her for three hours before announcing the death.” He adds that authorities then asked her to sign a document and threatened her that if she spoke to the media, she would be put in prison. 

He added that authorities had threatened the family in a similar way during his father’s incarceration.  

In the statement, Ramin Seyed-Emami thanked those who had offered support to the family following the death of his father, including friends, politicians, lawyers and people trying to “shine a light on the ambiguities of this case.”
