Rahele Rahemipour: You killed my brother! What did you do with his child?

Golrou Rahemipour was born in April 1984 in iran’s notorious Evin prison. Golrou was taken away from her mother at  just a few days old. Golrou’s parents were detained because of their “political activity” . her father, Hossein Rahemipour, was a political activist.
less than six months after Golrou’s birth, her father was executed.
Golrou’s aunt, Raheleh Rahemipour, has repeatedly tried to learn the fate of her brother and niec but officials referred to her claims as imaginary and denied Golrou’s existenc.
In March 2016, Justice for Iran reported the case to the U.N. Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances as a part of a lonstanding bid for redress and accountability.
Raheleh Rahemipour was then sentenced to one year’ imprisonment for the alleged crime of “propaganda against the state”.
in July 2017, the Iranian government responded to the U.N. Working Group to say that Golrou died at seven days old and to confirm that her father was executed.
In may 2018, during her second trial, Raheleh was told that the authorities would stop the prosecution if she agreed to withdraw the complaint that stands before the U.N.
