Execute one – Arrest the rest

A nephew of Ali Saremi, the Iranian political prisoner hanged yesterday for ?collaborating with an exiled opposition group? and ?waging war against God?, was arrested today, after hanging up a picture of his uncle on the door to his home as a sign of mourning.

Other relatives and friends of Saremi were also arrested yesterday for gathering in front of the prison where Saremi was hanged. They were released after pledging not to gather again in front of the prison.

It wasn?t enough to execute Saremi for his crimes ? his whole family had to be arrested as well.
