Parastoo Forouhar Banned From Leaving Iran

Report source: Radio Zamaneh

Iranian security forces have confiscated Parastoo Forouhar's passport restricting her from leaving the country. Parastoo Forouhar is the daughter of Dariush Forouhar and Parvaneh Eskandari two prominent political activists who were assassinated by Iranian Intelligence forces over ten years ago.

Parastoo Forouhar, who is a resident of Germany, travels back to Iran annually on the anniversary of her parent's death in order to hold a commemoration ceremony for them. However each year the government impedes all her efforts.

Parastoo Forouhar reports that the Ministry of Intelligence has filed a complaint against her at the Revolutionary court for holding interviews with the media regarding her parents.


Forouhar just held an exhibition in Tehran titled "I Surrender"


The murders of Dariush Forouhar and Parvaneh Eskandari were soon followed by the assassinations of Mohammad Mokhtari and Mohammad Jafar Poyandeh, two prominent Iranian writers. The Ministry of Intelligence later denied responsibility for the assassinations claiming the Ministry employees had acted arbitrarily.

Eleven years after these incidences, the government still refuses to let the families of these victims hold any commemoration ceremonies for their loved ones.

The files regarding these murders remain unresolved in the Islamic Republic courts.
