Iran: voices

In the city of Zahedan, Sistan-e-Baluchestan province, are Saturday two drugstraffickers hanged.
IRNA reported that Shamseddin Darvakh Gorgich and Mahmoud Shah Pashtoon are executed in prison.

October 13 died 27-year-old Zahra Bani Yaghoub in police custody.
Earlier that day she was arrested by Iran's morality police while walking with her fiance in a Hamadan city park.
The next day she was dead, according to the police she committed suicide by hanging herself, but according to her parents they had no reason to believe that their daughter would take her own life.
The family says Bani Yaghoub's body was bruised and that there was blood in her nose and in her ears.
In the meantime this case is known all over the country.
The Iranian Alumni Association of Majlis Representatives,which brings together more than 400 former Iranian parliamentarians, urged Ayatollah Hashemi Shahrudi to fully investigate the case in order to answer all outstanding questions.
Her family and her attorney have submitted a complaint against Hamedan’s Basiji brigade, who arrested her.
A not confirmed report indicates that a number of Revolutionary Guards commanders met last week with the special representative of the Supreme Leader, and asked him to investigate this case.
According to the same report Bani Yaghoub’s father is a clerk at a Revolutionary Guard facility, and this has caused Revolutionary Guards commanders to be upset with the death of one of their colleague’s daughters.
