Fakhraddin Ebrahimi, son of the executed Kurdish political prisoner Mohyeddin Ebrahimi, was arrested on 3 April after being summoned to Branch Nine of the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor’s Office in Orumiyeh, north-western Iran.

After his arrest, Ebrahimi was transferred to a high-security detention centre in the city.

Last week, the prosecutor’s office summoned the 19-year-old, alleging that he had “damaged state property”.

On 16 March, Ebrahimi, 19, was beaten and detained for several hours by prison guards after going to Orumiyeh Central Prison for a final visit with his father before the execution.

A day later, his father Mohyeddin Ebrahimi was executed at Orumiyeh Central Prison.

The security agencies have so far refused to hand over the political prisoner’s body, saying that he was “buried in a safe place”.

After two weeks of follow-up with the courts and civil registry offices in Orumiyeh, Oshnavieh and Naqadeh, the family finally received a death certificate for the executed political prisoner at the Naqadeh Civil Registry Office.

The death certificate indicated that the cause of death was “legal punishment.”
