He says he is shocked at the executions; all their files were under review. He breaks down crying when he says Shirin had promised to study; she didn’t even speak Persian (but Kurdish). They made up a case against her. He says what has happened is heinous. In five, six minutes they decide to kill someone – it is intolerable.

He goes on to say you killed them – why? For what crime? For setting of bombs – it is a lie and I say it here…
