Cartoon 51: The Cost of Speaking Out
Unidentified security forces have been threatening Sahar Beheshti with imprisonment or death if she speaks out about the case of her brother Sattar, a blogger who died while undergoing interrogation in a police detention center in November 2012. Sahar Beheshti is refusing to keep silent.
“We only want the formation of a fair court with a jury,” Sahar Beheshti told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, “because Sattar was innocent and he died under torture. The forces entered my mother’s home without a warrant, took him, killed him four days later, and now they tell us to shut up.”
