NCRI - The Iranian regime's repressive State Security Forces (Police) disrupted a commemoration gathering and rally held by the residents of the Iranian village birthplace of the political prisoner Gholamreza Khossravi Savajani of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI /MEK) who was brutally hanged last Sunday in Gohardasht Prison.

Residents of Savadjan, in southern Iranian province of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari first gathered outside a shrine and marched to the village's mosque chanting slogans such as “precious PMOI member your martyrdom be blessed” and “Khossravi, Khossravi may your soul be happy”.

The Iranian regime's State Security Forces and agents of the Iranian regime's Ministry of Inteligence and Security prevented the continuation of the march and disrupted the commemoration ceremony.

Gholamreza Khossravi Savadjani was born in Savadjan village and since his childhood lived in southern city of Abadan where he was acquainted with the PMOI and was actively involved in supporting the movement.

Meanwhile a number of political activists published a statement commemorating Gholamreza Khossravi's memory.

Gholamreza Khosravi was hanged in Karaj Gohardasht Prison on June 1, after 12 years of imprisonment and torture in various dungeons of the Iranian regime.
The mullahs’ intelligence elements refused to hand over his corpse to his family and secretly buried him on Monday, June 2, at 01:00 am in Bagh-e-Rezvan Cemetery in city of Isfahan.
