Neda Agha Soltan

Hajar Rostami Motlagh, Neda Agha Soltan’s mother responded to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s comments during his latest trip to New York as follows:

“I find this gentleman’s remarks comical. The people are fully aware of who killed Neda. The first year he was in New York he held up a picture of an Egyptian woman and when they asked him about Neda, he spoke of the Egyptian woman instead. To add insult to injury, last year he claimed that everyone is free and this year he has continued with these ludicrous comments. Every year he goes to the U.S. and says something... How should we respond to these comments? Should we remind him that as the head of a government he should have a conscience? Should we ask him how he can give himself the right to claim that everything has been fabricated? Even if we did, it would be to no avail.”

While pointing to the videotapewitnessed by the world at large that captured the last moments of her daughter’s life, Neda Agha Soltan’s mother said: “What matters is that the nation of Iran and the world at large are aware of the truth and what really occurred. They can continue to say what ever they want to. It is the people’s support that is of importance to me; a nation that has never left us alone and continues to stand with us after two years and three months. I will always be grateful to the kindness of our people. After two years our people continue to visit us, giving us hope and strength. Ahmadinejad can continue to say what ever he wishes. No one believes what he says.”

In an interview with New York Times, Mahmood Ahmadinejad claimed that the video footage of Neda Agha Soltan losing her life was fabricated, blaming the BBC for this fabricated news. “We have evidence that proves that she was killed after the fact and BBC fabricated the news by editing the footage.” claimed Ahmadinejad.
