Reality is unlike most democratic

People came
to mourn Behnoud's lost. For his lost years waiting in prison & yearning for freedom,
for his lost of life &
the lost of hope that he held until the last seconds of his life standing on that stool hoping that the victim's mother would forgive him. The services were also a way to protest
against minor's
executions. People showed up with "Stop Children's Execution" signs.
Another sign read "Iran has the
highest number of minors executions in the world". People cried.
Plain clothes & uniformed agents
were there also.
Behnoud's father said agents went to his home in the morning and warned him that
the services
should be conducted quietly and no fliers can be passed around. People gathered with signs

in front of the mosque, walking around and letting others know what was happening inside
The parents of Ali Mahin-Torabi who also has received the death sentence when a minor were also there.
Ali's parents said, their son's Court of Appeals will be held in two weeks
Behnoud is gone but let's hope his death was not in vain, let's hope he has brought enough
attention to this cruel practice in Iran so other minors don't have to sit on death row
Perhaps Behnoud's death will help save other youngsters from having to endure the
pain & horror of staying in solitary on the last night of their life

نسرین ستوده:
در میان اسامی ای که مدیر روابط عمومی دادگستری تهران اعلام کرد اسم موکل من به عنوان محکوم به اعدام نبود اما

ما گمان می کنیم کسی که به عنوان "الف . پ" معرفی شده همان آرش رحمانی پور، یعنی موکل بنده است
چون وکیل تسخیری آقای رحمانی پور، به پدر ایشان گفته که حکم اعدام آرش صادر شده است. این در حالیست که هنوز چنین حکمی به موکل من ابلاغ نشده است
دادگاه تاکنون علیرغم مراجعات فراوان من و خانواده آرش از پذیرفتن وکالت نامه من امتناع کرده است
آقای رحمانی پور در فروردین ماه بازداشت شده اند و هیچ ربطی به انتخابات و وقایع بعد از انتخابات ندارند
6 نفر از ماموران سراغ پدر رحمانی پور را تهدید کرده اند که یا پسرت را واداربه اقرار کن و یا همین الان تو را هم بازداشت خواهیم کرد
آرش رحمانی پور با توجه به وعده هایی که درباره آزادی و تخفیف در مجازات در صورت اعتراف و همکاری با ماموران
به او داده بودند به کارهای نکرده اعتراف کرده است
رحمانی پور، هیچ گونه فعالیت عملی در خصوص انجمن پادشاهی ایران نداشته است
ایذا و آزار و بازداشت سایر اعضای خانواده برای اعمال فشار به موکلم، اقرار به کارهای نکرده و برخوردی که با خواهر او
صورت گرفته نشان میدهد که چه فشار ناهنجاری بر آرش رحمانی پور که فقط 19 سال سن دارد ، وارد شده است
Nasrin Sotoudeh:
My client's name wasn't listed as sentenced to death in the list announced by the court's PR, however
we believe the "A.P." that is sentenced to death is my client Arash Rahmani Pour
This is because his public defendant has told his father that he is sentenced to death while he hasn't received it
Despite regular visits by me & Arash's family, the court refuses to accept my power of attorney
Mr. Rahmani Pour was arrested in March & has nothing to do with post-election events
6 agents have threatened Rahmani Pour's father: Either force your son to confess or we'll arrest you as well
Rahmani Pour has not confessed, despite all the promises regarding his release in case of cooperation

Rahmani Pour has had no practical activity regarding the royal association
Arrest of family members, forced confessions & treatment of his sister show the intense pressure
on the 19-year-old
