Sohrab Arabi and his mother, Parvin Fahimi, campaigning for Mir Hossein Musavi shortly before Arabi disappeared. He was later found shot dead.

The mother of Sohrab Arabi, a young man killed in the postelection crackdown, has said that if authorities release all political prisoners she will forgive those responsible for her son's death.

Parvin Fahimi made the comments in an interview with Radio Farda's Elahe Ravanshad in which she also said she doesn't think authorities will pay any attention to her offer because "they don't consider us [important]."

Arabi went missing during a peaceful June 15 protest over the reelection of Mahmud Ahmadinejad. Fahimi was not informed of her son's death until almost one month later.

Fahimi said the authorities have not been diligent in pursuing those who killed her son and other protesters last year.

Both Arabi and Fahimi supported presidential candidate Mir Hossein Musavi in last year's vote. Here is a video taken in Tehran in the days before last June's vote in which Arabi and his mother can be seen. Arabi is wearing a green scarf and green bandanna:
