Eyewitness Report of Iran protests in Behbahan Nov 2019

NCRI Women’s Committee: Shabnam Dayani was killed on November 16, 2019, during Iran protests in Shiraz.

Shabnam Dayani and 12 others were run over by the vehicles of the IRGC-paramilitary force, the Bassij. The Bassij agents subsequently opened a barrage of fire on all of them. When Shabnam’s family went to collect her body, the authorities threatened and instructed them to declare her death an accident, but her family refused to do so. Shabnam’s body was handed over to her family with a two-day delay and was transferred to Behbahan. Bassij agents ordered Shabnam’s family to use a white gravestone exclusive to the Bassij, so that the regime would not be incriminated in her death. But her family rejected the regime’s demand.

Iranian in Berlin demonstrated today in front of the Japanese embassy in Germany to protest against a programmed visit to Japan, by the mullahs’ president Hassan Rouhani scheduled for tomorrow Friday 20 December. In a letter addressed to the ambassador, demonstrators urged the Japanese government to cancel the visit by Rouhani, who is supposed to meet the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. They said Rouhani was responsible for “crimes against humanity”, so his visit to the country should not take place especially a few weeks after the brutal suppression of Iran protests by government forces in Iran.

Maryam Rajavi president-elect of the NCRI wrote on twitter:

The United Nations must send fact-finding missions to Iran to investigate about those killed, injured and imprisoned. Considering that many of those arrested during the uprising are subjected to torture and executions, the dispatch of these missions enjoys high priority.
