Agents of the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) arrested Ms. Akmali at home on January 25, 2017, and transferred her to Ward 209 in Evin Prison.
Ms. Akmali’s son, Mostafa Karimbeigi, 26, was shot dead by the regime’s revolutionary guards in the uprising on December 27, 2009. The family searched everywhere for two weeks until they found his body in the Coroner’s Office of Kahrizak. During this time, the Ministry of Intelligence continuously threatened the family. After they found Mostafa’s body, the MOIS agents did not allow them to bury him in Tehran and the family was forced to bury him in a town outside the capital without holding any ceremonies.
Over the past years, Ms. Akmali has demanded prosecution of those responsible for murder of her son. Their family has always been under pressure and threats by the Ministry of Intelligence.
