Investigation of Haleh Sahabi’s death closed without visual evidence review

Tuesday, 2 April 2013

Two years after the death of Haleh Sahabi at her father’s funeral, a Tehran Court has declared that she died of “natural causes” and closed the investigation. In an interview with Rooz Online, Sahabi’s husband stated that the court refused to review video and photographs pertaining to the incident, despite the court testimony of four eye witnesses who had seen an individual strike Sahabi before her death. Haleh Sahabi, a member of the Mothers for Peace group, died at her father’s funeral on June 1, 2011, after security forces attacked her and she sustained a blow to her body.
