Brother of executed political prisoner arrested in Iran

Agents from the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) on Thursday arrested a recently executed political prisoner’s brother for honoring his memory by hanging pictures on his shop window.

Mr. Ali Saremi, 62, was imprisoned by the clerical regime for visiting his son, Akbar, in Camp Ashraf, Iraq, where 3,400 members of the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) reside. In a barbaric act on Tuesday, the mullahs executed Mr. Saremi, who had spent a total of 24 years in prison.

His brother, Mohammad-Reza Saremi was arrested by regime MOIS agents on Thursday after he put up pictures in his memory at his shop window.

Separately, Mr. Ali Saremi’s family referred to Kahrizak prison on Thursday to retrieve his body, but the regime’s agents there refused to respond to the family’s inquires. One of the agents reportedly told family members that Mr. Saremi’s body has already been buried in a village in Boroujerd.

The village, known as Amir Abad, is located in Lorestan province, about 394 km away from Tehran, where the family lives.
