Family of Mr. Ataollah Rezvani threatened

Sepidam blog, October 27

The family of Mr. Ataollah Rezvani ( عطاءالله رضوانی ), a well-known member of the Baha’i community in Bandar Abbas, who was martyred two months ago, have been threatened with consequences under “the honour system.” It would appear that they are being blamed for the harm which the murder of Mr Rezvani has done to the international image of Iran and its government. Sixty six days after the murder, police investigations appear to have stalled. No clues regarding the murderers have been found. The investigating judge is holding to the supposition that Mr Rezvani must have shot himself in the back of the head and disposed of the weapon and bullet casing before dying. He has been vigorously interviewing the family and friends to gather evidence to support his suicide theory. Mr. Rezvani was murdered in his car. The windows were closed and the air conditioning was running. Police have not found a “bullet” [sic ~ presumably, they have not found the shell of the bullet] which would give a clue as to the murder weapon. It would appear that the murder was carried out by professionals.

  1. Is it possible that we could obtain an email address of the officials of Bandar Abbas and urge fair and just action in the case of Mr Rezvani’s death, telling them that the standards of Muhammad’s teachings lead us to believe that justice is essential or to register protest. How do we obtain and email address: Thank you.

    • Good idea. I am working on it. I started by asking Amnesty International if they could help with an address. It might be a good idea to go one level higher than the local authorities.
